Global Education Partner Summit

Global Education Partner Summit @ Worldwide Partner Summit (GEPS@WPC)

GEPS@WPC is our annual gathering of top WW Education Partners and is a lead-in to WPC.  This year more than ever you won't want to miss this important event as we'll discuss the amazing opportunities the launch of Windows 8, Office 365 for Education, and the rest of the new lineup of innovative Microsoft products, is presenting to existing and new education partners.

GEPS@WPC 2013 will be highly interactive with Partners and their needs at the center.  It will feature both Microsoft and industry executive guest speakers addressing Microsoft's latest technologies with a look forward at the trends shaping the Education industry and their impact on our partners' business.  You'll have the opportunity to network and interact with other Microsoft Partners and Microsoft senior executives who are driving our efforts in Education.  We look forward to meeting you in Houston and to receiving your inputs at GEPS@WPC.

A note from Anthony Salcito

With a cavalcade of new product releases, FY'13 was a huge year for Microsoft and our partners - and we expect FY'14 will offer even more opportunities for our partners to grow their businesses as these platforms continue to be adopted by our customers.  We've had many important strategic wins with Windows 8, our OEM partners have hit the market with more than 120 Windows 8 devices, Surface is having an impact, and Office 365 for Education is growing so much faster than expected that we increased our targets by 1,000%.

My team and I are excited to share with you strategies for success and why Education is one of the fastest growing and most important business segments at Microsoft at GEPS@WPC. You'll hear from Public Sector-Education leadership, Business Group leadership, and partners on how you can leverage these tremendous opportunities, and how partners are winning and moving ahead successfully in Education.

We look forward to seeing you in Houston at GEPS@WPC.
