Microsoft Hosting Summit 2013 Helps Build Strong Partnerships

By Jay Atkinson
AIS Network CEO

Once again, I am honored to attend the annual Microsoft Hosting Summit, which is being held this week in Seattle.

Why organize a globally focused hosting summit? Smart businesses build strong partnerships, Microsoft says. And, the AISN Team couldn’t agree more. Since Microsoft has upwards of 640,000 partners globally, we really appreciate that they take time out for their hosting partners.

Seattle is the site of the 2013 Microsoft Hosting Summit. In the distance, the famed Seattle Space Needle is bathed in evening light.

The Microsoft Hosting Summit, which is an invitation-only event, provides an unparalleled opportunity for leaders across the industry to connect and share ideas on how to expand and build new services, drive innovation and create new business opportunities.

This week’s agenda includes keynote sessions, breakout tracks, workshops, exhibits, and networking opportunities intended to help Microsoft Partners like us forge new ideas, services, and partnerships to advance our hosting business. Ultimately, the goal is to walk away with a better understanding of how to create, optimize, and grow the next generation Web.

I’ll report more later.  In the meantime, you can follow this week’s Hosting Summit via Twitter by searching for tweets using #MSHostingSummit.
