The SoCal IAMCP is the largest chapter of the International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) in the United States, and in 2019, we will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary. We couldn’t think of a better reason to celebrate each other and the partnerships that we have together! It is also a fantastic way to introduce more partners to the full Microsoft Partner opportunity and experience with IAMCP! With an estimated 500 attendees and 40 showcased vendors, this is the closest you will come to the Microsoft Inspire Conference without having to pay $2,000+ and travel across the country! Visit our event website at www.iamcpparty.com for more information. This local event will be held in Irvine, CA at the Hotel Irvine on October 24th. All Microsoft Partners are welcome, and we encourage you to invite anyone/everyone at your company. This event is not just a celebration for executives, but a celebration for everyone inclusive of Sales, Services, Support, IT, HR, Operations, etc… It takes a full team to make our partnerships thrive, and we want to show our appreciation to everyone! Microsoft Partners from outside of Southern California are also welcome to attend. We have pre-negotiated a great rate for you with the Hotel Irvine, so please make sure to reach out to us if you are traveling to experience this event from out of the area. Our event will be buzzing with Microsoft Executives like Gavriella Schuster, Worldwide Corporate Vice President and Brent Combest, US General Manager delivering keynotes, and other local Microsoft sellers and marketers who are ready and willing to take your Microsoft Partnership to the next level. Not only will we have some of the best content available for Microsoft Partners at the event, but we will also have a lot of fun celebrating with each other. We will have a VIP Experience, Live Band(s), Magician(s), Games, Partner Awards, Challenge Coins, Head Shot Booths and free food and beverages for all! Also, to encourage you to invite others, we will be giving away a car (or cash equivalent) to one lucky attendee at the event! You will earn raffle tickets for the car simply by referring others. As each person registers as a paid attendee on the website, they will be asked who invited them. If they list your name, then you will receive a raffle ticket when they check in at the event! You must be present to win! Lastly, this is a non-profit event. All money raised in excess to putting the event together will benefit the Children’s Hospital of Orange County and the Ronald McDonald House of Orange County. We look forward to celebrating with you!
