Events: Introducing TechPartner

Redmond Channel Partner will mark another milestone in March with the debut of its new conference series, targeted to executives at Microsoft partner companies.

The first TechPartner Conference will be held March 28-29 at the Hilton at the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla. There's an early-bird discount for partners who register by Feb. 23.

The event will focus on helping partners pinpoint the best revenue opportunities associated with this year's massive wave of Microsoft product releases, including Windows Vista, Exchange 2007, Office 2007 and SharePoint Server 2007.

Mark Minasi, author of the forthcoming Mastering Windows Vista Business: Ultimate, Business and Enterprise (Sybex, 2007) and other Microsoft networking books, will give the keynote address.

Other experts will oversee intensive sessions on individual Microsoft technologies, licensing issues, targeted sales and marketing techniques, plus other topics. Instructors include RCP columnists Paul DeGroot and Mac McIntosh.

TechPartner coincides with Redmond's weeklong TechMentor Conference, to be held in the same location. Partners can network with TechMentor attendees as well as with each other and the RCP editorial staff during lunches, expo-hall hours and receptions.
