Vince-in-bubbleI am excited to invite you to attend the 2011 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Los Angeles, CA from July 10-14.

The Worldwide Partner Conference is your to time hear about the Microsoft strategic roadmap, discover new opportunities to grow your business, and drive revenue through our new wave of product innovations. We often hear that the Conference is a highly valued opportunity for partners at your level because of the networking opportunities it presents. WPC is your best chance all year to connect with people who can help you shape your strategies and expand your business. The Microsoft U.S. partner executive team will be in attendance at the conference to meet with you to discuss your business, dialogue on what we can do to strengthen our partnership with you, and answer any questions.

For Microsoft U.S. partners who serve Public Sector customers, including Education, Healthcare, Federal Government, State and Local Government, and Public Safety and National Security, there are plenty of great opportunities to learn, connect, and engage at WPC 2011:
