While the conference itself provides a myriad of opportunities for partners, one of the greatest benefits is the opportunity to be a part of the Digital WPC Community. Our WPC Connect platform has evolved to provide a rich, meaningful and engaging experience through content, discussions and networking tools. The best part? These tools are useful before any WPC conference, whilst onsite at WPC and post WPC.
WPC Connect is available to anyone who wishes to participate within our community, attendee or not. Logging can be as simple as using an email or a LinkedIn account (but please note: the Session & Meeting Scheduler tools are only available to those signed up to attend WPC 2014). To learn more, check out the WPC Connect User Guide.
“The value of networking to build relationships with other partners at WPC is priceless.” Juan Rodriguez, CEO Integrated Digital Technologies.
What’s important to remember: now that WPC 2013 is over, your use of WPC Connect can still live on, and potentially be more helpful than ever.
Now that the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference is over, we’re transitioning into FY14 and starting to create an even more incredible experience for you at WPC 2014 in Washington, D.C.!

- Follow-Up: chat with fellow Microsoft partners you met in Houston
- Reach Out: connect with new partners that have like-minded interest
- Update Your Profile: load a new profile picture, add knowledge you gained, skills you learned and new interests that you acquired at WPC 2013
- Watch WPC 2013 Videos: re-watch sessions, value & vision keynotes, demos or see videos you may have missed
- Join the Conversation: give feedback, share your thoughts on MPN & talk to sponsors
WPC Connect @ WPC 2013
WPC 2013 went down in history as the biggest Microsoft Partner Network event ever, bringing 14,000+ attendees from more than 160 countries. With everyone focused on business growth in the technology space, there wasn’t a better place than WPC Connect to meet and spend time with people from some of the top organizations in the industry, minus the conference itself, of course!
This year, we set aside 100’s of tables and provided scheduling tools with one purpose in mind: helping partners like you build profitable relationships by facilitating tens of thousands of business development meetings. WPC Connect highlights that partners found incredibly helpful were the abilities to:
- Opt-In for Meetings & Email Messaging
- Build a Presence on WPC Connect
- Profile Updates
- Schedule Meetings
Through the continued use of the above features, in combination with new updates based on your feedback, WPC Connect is a great way to build on the relationships you formed in Houston, and even continue to form new ones throughout the next year before WPC 2014 in Washington, D.C.
