Microsoft Australia’s GM Steve Worrall has announced today a new set of events coming this year. Microsoft Australia has created one flagship event over one week, for BDM customers, partners, IT pros and developers. We’re calling it the Microsoft Summit and it will be hosted in Sydney at the International Convention Centre (ICC) from 14-17 November this year.
The goal of the Microsoft Summit is: to deliver the connections, solutions and skills for individuals and businesses to engage, adapt and grow in the digital age. And it will cover the below 3 events across 4 days, targeting both existing and new audiences.
Microsoft Business Summit, 14 November
This day is targeted at commercial and public sector customers and prospects in C-Suite and BDM roles across industries. They will be joined in the morning for the opening keynote by the partner and tech community, to hear a world-class line up of speakers to be announced soon. It’s then into an exclusive experience to explore industry tracks and garner value from customers, start-ups, ISVs and partners, as they share the solutions and outcomes that are transforming businesses across industry and sector.
Microsoft Partner Summit, 14-15 November
This is the evolution of APC and there will not be an APC event in Q1 FY18. The Partner Summit will be everything partners loved about APC and more. They will join customers at the opening keynote and will benefit from being able to tailor a program across leadership, sales and marketing tracks, and into the Tech Summit (below) for their tech teams and decision makers. It will remain a deep learning and structured networking experience with actionable outcomes for growth and transformation.
Microsoft Tech Summit, 16-17 November
Aimed at IT pros and developers, this event comes to us from Corp as part of a world tour. It will have an amazing line-up of engineers and experts across our cloud technologies with focus to Azure, Windows 10 and Office 365. It will be two days of technical training up to level 400 and the team will create an incredible community spirit as has been consistently delivered for years across all our events for technical audiences.
