You are cordially invited to join us for the Microsoft 2008 Launch Wave Partner Marketing Day!

This event is the best opportunity prior to the launch of Microsoft Windows Server® 2008, Visual Studio® 2008 and SQL Server™ 2008 for our North America-based partners to learn about the Microsoft plans and partner programs that will enable you to take advantage of what promises to be the biggest IT Pro, Developer and Partner outreach in our company's history.

Partner Marketing Day is a non-disclosure, invitation-only event that will provide the critical marketing information you’ll need to plan and profit from the upcoming launch. It is for Microsoft top OEM, system builder, software, hardware, channel, distribution, and service partners. Microsoft executives and product experts will lead presentations and conversations to provide you with a look at Microsoft product and launch strategies, including:

  • Industry trends and how the new Microsoft products will affect the marketplace
  • The business opportunity for Partners
  • An overview of the launch strategy and worldwide launch plans
  • A look at marketing plans by product
  • Launch opportunities including branding, web, PR, advertising, campaign, event and training programs

Partner Marketing Day is the primary event to give you the information you need to take advantage of the launch and to answer questions about how you can engage most effectively with Microsoft.
