Dear Partners,

As we've understood recently that many of our partners are continuing to use this blog as a source of information for WPC, I apologize if we haven't been on here regularly. the Worldwide Partner Conference is happing in Washington D.C. from July 13-17th this year, and already te momentum and excitement around this years WPC is great. We've made some significant changes to the way we are planning WPC this year. For one we have moved our Regional Keynote which was traditionally on Thursday's to Sunday July 13th! This will allow you to get a framework of what to expect as you go into the week, show you our roadmap for the coming year, get to hear from our Canadian Leadership team who will all be there also celebrate all our IMPACT Award winners as well as our Country Partner of the Year on stage! From there we move into Monday where we kick off the week with the Vision Keynote at the Verizon Centre, followed by an exciting line up of sessions, meetings and connecting in the Canadian Lounge and wrapping up our Monday evening with a dinner for the IMPACT Award Finalists at Folger Shakespeare Library, where additionally we are hosting a meetup at a roof top hotel bar for all our partners to celebrate the evening. From there we move into Tuesday - the day of our Canadian Party! This year we're hosting our Canadian Party at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium! It's building up to be a spectacular party already. Wednesday begins with our second Vision Keynote, more great sessions (that run all week Monday-Wednesday) and ends the day with the Partner Celebration...band to be released soon!

All in all we cannot wait to get to Washington D.C. and meet, celebrate and mingle with all of you! We've been using some other common forums to communicate about WPC this year. Our priority twitter handle is @MPNCanada, our Yammer Page https://www.yammer.com/cdnwpc/ and frequent monthly emails and newsletters! We hope you've been following along with us on all the updates and news as we work towards creating this years WPC to be your one stop shop to connecting with other partners and us, growing your business, and celebrating some incredible achievements this year! Please let us know if you have any questions and join us as you sign up for WPC also on our digitalwpc.com Connect Page in our own regional Canadian Group!
