Next, Microsoft will be renaming the Worldwide Partner Conference to Microsoft Inspire and will hold the event July 9-13 in Washington, D.C. The reason for the name change is due to MS believing the new title “reflects how Microsoft and [their] partner community inspire each other to innovate and deliver powerful new solutions to customers.”
