Microsoft Inspire is just a few days away! Over 15,000 Microsoft employees and partners will descend upon Washington D.C. between 9th-13th July for the largest Microsoft partner event on the globe.

Microsoft Inspire gives partners the opportunity to form alliances to better serve customers, grow their business and strengthen their Microsoft relationship. Microsoft recently announced some changes to the conference line-up, including changing the name from Worldwide Partner Conference.

The Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) is now called “Microsoft Inspire,” announced Chris Capossela, Microsoft’s chief marketing officer. The switch from the previous WPC branding to Inspire “reflects how Microsoft and our partner community inspire each other to innovate and deliver powerful new solutions to customers,” he said.

This will be the fifth year running that Automated Intelligence has been in attendance at the conference. Mark Godfrey (CEO) and David Coombs (Partner Manager) will join thousands of others in Washington D.C. to connect with partners, Microsoft employees and industry experts.

This year’s conference will also see Automated Intelligence rank in the top 1% of Microsoft Partners for Inbound Marketing Excellence. A report has been compiled by Fifty Five and Five, who analysed the marketing activity of over 25,000 Microsoft Partners. fifty Five and Five will publish the results, ranking the top 1% of Microsoft partners, at the Microsoft Inspire conference on the 9th July.
