Secrets for Microsoft’s Customer Conference Convergence 2011

Email | Print

Microsoft’s Annual customer conference, Convergence , being held April 10th-13th 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia, is at the same location as it was last year.  Therefore, last year’s attendees have an upper-hand on some of the insights to getting around the convention center, selecting the best restaurants, and booking the most convenient hotels.  So, I’d like to share some of  these ‘secrets’ with new attendees who perhaps are prospects of one of Microsoft’s Dynamics products – or customers who are deciding to go to this significant event for the first time!

Additional Convergence Tips are mentioned within Collins Computing’s  Dynamics Community blog entry, but here are my favorites:

  • Ask the Convention Center guides where the 'secret' tunnel is that takes you from the Community and Learning Center to the Expo and eating halls. This tunnel will save you hundreds of steps, which become important after four days of attending all the exciting sessions you don’t want to miss.
  • Join the Facebook “Microsoft Dynamics Community” to keep up with key Convergence and product announcements, updates, and ‘tips’.
  • While at Convergence, send Tweets from MSDYNCOMM concerning #CONV11 to your PDA to be alerted to event updates while on-site!
  • Watch the display consoles at the Convention Center for sessions added due to higher attendance earlier in the week.
  • Try real “Southern Cooking” at South City Kitchen or Pity Pat’s Porch and experience Southern Fried Chicken, Grits, Fried Green Tomatoes and more!
  • Sign up for Convergence 2011 by Monday to save $300! Early Bird specials end Feb 21st, or contact Collins to have a chance to win   $300 off Convergence 2011.

Whether you are a ‘prospect’ or an existing customer, we advise attending Convergence with a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner like Collins Computing.  Your partner should discuss key sessions, expo booths, and events you shouldn’t miss during Convergence – or better yet, accompany you to several of these so you can bounce ideas off of them and ask questions right away!  If you haven’t connected with a partner yet, contact Collins Computing and we’ll be your Convergence “Ambassador”!
