Microsoft will host our annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) next week, and we are eager to see our partners in Washington, D.C.
On the heels of a successful showing at TechEd NA last month where we announced beta availability of Exchange Server 2010 SP1 and disclosed the features coming in Communications Server ‘14’, we are excited to turn our attention to our partner ecosystem and highlight not only the great partner momentum currently in market but also look ahead to the business opportunities Exchange and Communications Server ‘14’ will bring to our partners.
Want to plug into WPC activities? Attend the event in person or connect via Digital WPC:
UC Symposium and WPC 2010 (Washington, D.C., July 11-15th)
The Exchange and Communications Server teams from Redmond will host our Unified Communications Symposium on Sunday, following the conclusion of the World Cup final match. Monday will kickoff with keynotes from Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer, President of the Microsoft Business Division, Stephen Elop and Chris Capossela, SVP for Microsoft’s IW PMG. Hear from Exchange’s Julia White and Ian Hameroff and Communications Server’s Kirk Gregersen and Jamie Stark as they lead sessions under the Business Productivity track on Monday afternoon as well. More than 15 other sessions across different tracks including EPG, SMB, Systems Integrator and Cloud Services will highlight Exchange and Communications Server, and we encourage partners to attend these sessions detailed in the conference catalog.
We look forward to seeing our partners at booth #155 on the expo floor where they can see demos of Exchange Server 2010 SP1 and Communications Server ‘14’. Partners can participate in our Customer Immersion Experience (CIE) at our booth. CIE is a hands-on environment where partners can test drive our business productivity platform in real time. Finally, swing by booth #277 to learn more about BPOS from the Microsoft Online Services team.

We look forward to seeing our partners in D.C.!
