Mark your calendars for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift event, September 12-14, 2012 in Fargo, ND. Historically a Microsoft-hosted event, GP Partner Connections (GPPC) is hosting this event.
The GP Technical Airlift event is designed to deliver advanced technical skills around Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 via two tracks, one for consultants and one for developers. Attendees will learn in the areas of workflow, business intelligence, SQL Reporting Services, and planning for security or compliance.
Designed for Dynamics GP implementation professionals, consultants, developers and technical sales engineers who work for Microsoft Dynamics VARs and ISVs, Kim Peterson, GPPC Director, anticipates that the event will likely sell out with approximately 400 attendees. Kim noted that “Partners are extremely excited about Dynamics GP 2013 and are looking forward to the in-depth training that this event will provide.” Microsoft and GPPC are currently finalizing the agenda and session content, but Kim informed me that they’ll be publishing more information soon. In the interim, you can find the tentative agenda and registration information at http://www.gpug.com/conferences/Airlift2012.
Also part of their working plan is a ‘social’ component to the conference. Kim explained that “GPPC is utilizing social media channels as part of the ‘prep’ for the event and we’ll be using the Twitter hashtags #GPPC and #airlift12 to keep the community informed. We’re also going to plan for ‘checking in’ and getting folks to blog/tweet before they come, during the event and after.” Lastly, this summer look forward to a webinar on “how to” leverage social media so we can all share what we are learning on Dynamics GP 2013.
