Museum of Flight Evening Event | Tuesday, July 30th

Museum of Flight

We will host an evening event on July 30th at the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle. The evening will include dinner, a motivational talk from George D. “Pinky” Nelson, NASA Astronaut (former), and an opportunity to tour one of the largest air and space museums in the world.

VSIP Summit: Partner Solution Expo | Wednesday, July 31st

Expo

New to our annual VSIP Summit agenda this year is a Partner Solution Expo evening event.

On July 31 from 6-9pm in Building 92 on the Microsoft campus, we will host a Partner Solution Expo. The Microsoft staff from the Enterprise and Partner sales organizations as well as the Developer Division have been invited to this Expo. This is a compelling opportunity for you to demo your products to Microsoft (for those of you that signed up for a booth at the expo) as well as an opportunity for everyone to network and make new contacts.

Each of the Partner Solution Demo booths will be participating in our Tag Scan promotion. The way it works is Microsoft staff, as well as VSIP Partner attendees, will visit each booth to scan a QR tag and provide contact information to enter drawings we will hold throughout the evening (must be present to win).

Prizes include the following

Developer Clinic | August 1 - 2

In conjunction with the VSIP Summit event, we are also hosting a Developer Clinic on Thursday and Friday, August 1st and 2nd. The VSIP Developer Clinic is an opportunity for VSIP partners to meet with subject matter experts and discuss specific topics impacting their business & technical integration needs on the latest vNext product builds. Questions must be submitted in advance and meetings will be scheduled with subject matter experts to address your specific questions.

There is limited space so be sure to indicate on the registration form if your company would be interested in attending the Dev Clinic.
