Safety and Security
In light of recent events, we have received several inquiries as to the status of WPC and our security protocol. Please note that Microsoft fully intends to host the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, July 7 – 11, in Houston, Texas. We want to assure partners and participants who plan to attend WPC that our event organizers follow strict guidelines for security and preparedness initiatives for all of our events.
With any international travel there are risks, but many steps have been taken to mitigate them. The Microsoft Global Security team has been involved at every stage of our planning process to focus on participant safety. Our program plan has been carefully designed to mitigate participant risk exposure. The safety and security of our attendees is Microsoft’s first priority.
