The Commons
The Commons is at the very core of the Worldwide Partner Conference experience. Engage with peers and Microsoft subject matter experts alike: there are myriad opportunities to network and learn across the entire breadth of space. Interact with fellow partners and company representatives from around the globe in dedicated regional lounges. Take meetings in the Connect networking area and, of course, explore offerings from a compelling array of Exhibitors and Sponsors.

Expo Hall

Visit the Exhibitor and Sponsor area within The Commons for a look at technology’s present and future. Connect with brands large and small or take your WPC attendance to the next level by securing floor space for your business to showcase your solutions. Exhibitors receive special access and perks, so reach out to sign up today for the enhanced visibility and advantages.


A well-loved fixture in The Commons, Connect offers attendees structured networking opportunities while onsite. Once the WPC Connect Meeting Scheduler tool becomes available in late spring, online requests for meetings and reserving tables can be made in advance—you’ll need to be registered to use the tool—or simply walk up and work with dedicated staff at the check-in desk to request a table and the next available time slot.
