Training budgets are typically the first to be slashed in a tough economic environment, and you may be wondering whether you should attend MIX this year.  Now more than ever, MIX is essential for helping companies do business on the web. 

 

Why you should plan to attend MIX09:

 

·         Protect the bottom line.  Consumers are spending less.  At MIX, you’ll learn how to use technology to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty and improve brand visibility.

·         Be proactive.  During uncertain financial times it’s even more important to evaluate your current business approach and plan future technology investments to maximize return.  Not only will you be the first to hear about the future of Microsoft’s web platform and technologies, but you’ll walk away with early versions of our latest software.

·         Get real answers from the experts.  You’ll have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one conversations and get your pressing questions answered by industry and Microsoft experts at MIX.  Unlike other conferences, MIX sessions are intimate and informal. 

·         Tap into the web community.  At MIX, you’ll network with people representing top websites and web agencies.  It’s a perfect opportunity to share best practices with the people that understand your business challenges first hand.
