Microsoft Dynamics 365 Blog

It’s bigger than a breadbox but smaller than the state of Florida, and it’s all about building connections to generate business, gathering insights to compete, and forming partnerships that help you deliver unbeatable results. You guessed it—we’re talking about Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC).  

This year’s event takes us to Orlando, Florida, July 12–15. To say we’re excited is an understatement. We’re gearing up to deliver unprecedented, partner-focused perspectives from leaders, innovators, and visionaries from across the industry that you simply can’t find anywhere else. WPC truly is a unique event for partners—not least of all Microsoft Dynamics partners. (Psst…. You can register here.)

I’m talking about you!

As an investment for your business future, WPC is definitely worth attending—not just for learning and networking that spans the Microsoft product portfolio, and for opportunities specific to Microsoft Dynamics SMB (more below), but to see the big picture. We want you to see where Microsoft is going and how Microsoft Dynamics products support that strategy—and use that perspective to win more customers.

Key benefits for Microsoft Dynamics SMB partners: 

Your SMB customers expect you not only to get the big picture but to provide a complete business solution. WPC is where you get to connect the dots. At WPC keynotes, sessions, and Expo, you can:

  1. See how Microsoft Dynamics SMB products interoperate with other Microsoft products, such as Office 365 and Azure.
  2. Learn the strategies behind other Microsoft products.
  3. Network with partners across the Microsoft solutions portfolio to offer a complete business solution and grow your business.
