There's a cook off going on down in New Orleans.  No, it's not a food contest although there are many ingredients involved.  It's Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013!  The ingredients include Microsoft current and future customers, the vast group of partners that support those customers, vendors with great products that surround those customers and of course the great folks at Microsoft.  This melting pot of ingredients creates a place where you find new product releases, best practices and where business relationships and partnerships are developed and strengthened.  So register and go to this great event to plan the future of your business now!  It's sure to spice up your life Cajun style.

I can't wait to taste all the dishes being served at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013 including the Keynote speeches by Kirill Tatarinov, President, Microsoft Business Solutions Division and Kofi A. Annan, Former Secretary-General for the United Nations.  Also, the LIVE WALL is a new ingredient this year that will give you instant updates from around the event.  Lastly, the session catalog is a great way to schedule and explore all the education you want in order to plan your future now.

Last but not least, New Orleans always has its share of partying going on and this event is no different.  This year the party has been moved to later in the event so make sure to pace yourself because this party is sure to be hot featuring a concert with chart topping, Grammy nominee band, Matchbox Twenty.

So get there early and stay there late because all the ingredients are cooking for a spicy event in March. So, plan your future now!  Cajun Style!
