Are You Ready for the New Microsoft WPC 2014 Experience?

wpc blog imageMicrosoft’s WPC always offers a wealth of opportunities when I attend, but this year in particular I'm pretty excited to go given all of the changes Microsoft has made to event design. Apparently our previous experiences in the educational sessions, networking areas and exhibit hall will all come together now in The Commons. Take a closer look at the driving concept for The Commons.

Keeping the partner community top of mind, and wanting to capture the energy generated from the expo hall, Microsoft constructed The Commons to provide partners with a journey through the Microsoft Partner Network space that minimizes barriers to partner collaboration. With this new approach to WPC, we're assured to have surprises, opportunities and inspirations throughout our time in The Commons. When I was reading more about the plan on the WPC website, I thought it was cool how the inspiration for The Commons was highly inspired by this year’s location and specifically the layout configuration of the Capitol, National Mall and Washington Monument.

So where will I see you? I hope to see you along the way, whether in Microsoft Central, the Social Hub or the Customer Immersion Experience area. To be honest, it takes awhile to get through the WPC session catalog and schedule out which sessions to attend, but I'm getting there slowly but surely. Given the highly motivating keynotes from Convergence 2014, I anticipate that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner have to say on stage.

I'm excited to experience the new WPC and hope that you'll be part of that experience! Feel free to reach me beforehand via WPC Connect.
