US Directions 2015 - A huge success for agiles

This year’s Directions North America took place in sunny Orlando, Florida from October 25th-28th.
It was a huge success for the agiles group: we enjoyed meeting our current and future partners at our kiosk and on the conference. The new arrangement of the kiosks as well as the great proportion of Sessions and breaks created a perfect environment for positive and productive networking.
 
Several factors contributed to the success of this years’ show. The track sessions, that were broken up into the five categories of Sales and Executive, Real World, MVP Best Practice, Consultant, and Developer, helped attendees focus on the path that is most relevant to their needs and get the most of their experience. While the ISV sessions provided wise insight into the current path and exciting developments of the Microsoft partner community.  
Our ISV session, „Integrated Solutions Across All Devices“ was well attended and ended with excitement as we selected the winner of the Drone. Congratulations again!
 
Of course, let us not forget the partner celebration. This year, the Directions team really outdid themselves by renting out the entire Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Diagon Alley – at Universal Studios. Muggles enjoyed exclusive access to various (line free) rides and attractions, traditional British cuisine, dancing, and shopping in the all the premium stores for all of their wizarding needs. It was a wonderful time that brought out the inner child in even the toughest of CEO’s.
 
And a special thank you to all of the committee members, without whom, the event would not have been possible. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
