Formerly known as the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Microsoft Inspire will showcase how the latest technologies from Microsoft and its partners can be used to help companies carry out successful digital transformations.
The event will also provide updates on Microsoft strategy and product roadmaps, as well as keynotes from Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella, president and chief legal officer Brad Smith, and Toni Townes-Whitley, corporate vice president of Public Sector and Industry.
Theatre sessions and discussions will focus on hot topics like artificial intelligence, data insights, digital marketing, finding and retaining talent, partnering with Microsoft, privacy and security, and social selling.
Delegates will be able to visit the Microsoft Central area to collaborate one-on-one with Microsoft experts, participate in Immersion Labs, understand how to fine tune their sales pitch, and learn more about harnessing Microsoft Secure, the cloud and the internet of things.
Alternatively, attendees can head to the Microsoft Partner Experience booth (formerly the MPN booth) to hear customer and partner success stories, speak directly with engineers and support personnel about the Microsoft Partner Network. Meanwhile, the Community Hub creates opportunities for networking and meet representatives from Microsoft communities, such as the International Association of Microsoft Partners (IAMCP) and Women in Technology (WIT).
Sponsors and Microsoft partners from around the world will also be able to demonstrate their latest products and solutions in the expo hall.
