Microsoft Inspire July 21-22, 2020 - Register Now!
Microsoft Inspire unites partners from around the world to create connections, empower possibilities, build their businesses, and celebrate success. And this year, you can attend virtually at no cost!
As we embark on our first digital-only event experience together, you’ll have opportunities to strengthen existing relationships and establish new ones, create new ways of serving our customers, partner on business opportunities, and help each other thrive in these unprecedented times.
The place to meet your next business opportunity.
Great partnerships are hard to develop and need a high level of trust and opportunities to meet like-minded professionals who are aligned with your passions, goals, and dreams. With the International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners, your chances for the “right partner match” grow significantly.
You can attend an in-person IAMCP meeting in a town near you, discuss different experiences, and share best practices, or join online webinars and get closer to Microsoft people.
You will get access to programs in business planning, development of product and marketing capabilities, personnel management, financial planning, mentoring and adoption of best practices, as well as new Microsoft products and initiatives.
What Our Members Are Saying
"Our alliance [ABS, Acxiom Consulting & Compusoft Advisors] is a perfect example of how partners in the Microsoft ecosystem can obtain growth when combining complementary skills and services, as well as different geographies. Not only does these open cross-selling opportunities in our existing client base, it also attracts new customers from areas where we weren’t individually present. "
"As a member I feel that Microsoft listens to our IAMCP representatives/ board. I see a business value where I get help in getting insight into Microsoft strategies and a great opportunity to network with other Microsoft partners,which offers learning opportunities as well as partnership possibilities that help me better serve my customers."
"The IAMCP has given us access to a world of knowledge, practices and collaboration on a global level, all of which helps us to learn and grow. Having better access to Microsoft is enormously helpful in enabling us to understand best practices and take better advantage of partner benefits, as well as having a collective voice."
"Participation in the IAMCP allows you to have invaluable conversations with business peers in a truly collaborative context. Members share how they do business with customers and how they interact with Microsoft, resulting in a vital trove of shared and evolving best practices. This is a unique opportunity—one that cannot be replicated in a classroom or any other type of educational setting"
"I've been a member of the IAMCP for over 15 years, , and have volunteered for various roles from New York Chapter President to the US Membership and Microsoft Inspire Roundtable Chairs. IAMCP membership allows partners to have “one voice” to provide constructive feedback to Microsoft for a positive business outcome for all partners. The P2P (Partner to Partner) opportunities are another strong reason I renew membership year after year."
"Joining the IAMCP allowed Nerdio great access to the Microsoft partner ecosystem, which we’ve never had before. The IAMCP brings new value to what it means to be a Microsoft partner. As a Microsoft co-sell partner, we can help Microsoft’s and their partners win Azure deals together! Everyone wins together, and that’s what it’s all about!"
"The IAMCP brings together a diverse set of partners within the Microsoft ecosystem to facilitate partnering. Few companies have the diversity of skill sets, knowledge and resources to meet customer expectations today. As a small and focused organization, partnering is the only way to meet our clients’ diverse needs. When we present a united front to the customer, our partnerships make the whole greater than the sum of the parts."
"The IAMCP fosters complementary relationships between diverse partners. While this may seem counter-intuitive, it is often difficult for partners to be skilled in all aspects of the Microsoft ecosystem even within their niches. We are routinely brought into the clients of other CRM partners because of our deeper expertise. We just become an extension of their team."
"Being part of the Microsoft community is good, but being part of a smaller, tightly-knit community such as IAMCP is even better! It allows members to communicate with each other more effectively and on a more personal level. To meet on a regular basis to achieve common goals such as increasing our knowledge, creating teamwork and new opportunities, which increases revenue and ultimately benefits everyone, especially end-user customers."
"IAMCP has been a great partner for us and strategic for our partner growth as we can build and foster partner relationships, not only locally, but nationally with various Microsoft Partner types. The Microsoft Partner ecosystem is unparalleled in the industry, and because of all the great relationships that IAMCP members have with their clients, we have had tremendous partnership opportunities. We are very grateful to be part of that eco-system and to partner with so many wonderful IAMCP members nationally."
"IAMCP can unify the voices of various Microsoft partners into a single representative body, helping to provide feedback and effect positive change with one of our largest strategic relationships. Spanning various company sizes, industry specialties and service lines offerings, partners of all types can participate in IAMCP and grow because of their involvement."
"Relationships come to mind when I think of IAMCP. It is a great resource of talent as technology is changing so quickly – you have access to experts that can help you provide that complete solution to your customer. The bottom line: it is all about the customer. Join your local IAMCP chapter, come to a monthly meeting – the resources are endless."
"Many partners have not heard about the common Microsoft Security products available to all of our mutual customers. Working with IAMCP allows me to be able to scale the Microsoft Security message to many more partners and allows those partners to share the proper messaging about Microsoft Security to their customers. It’s a value for me, the partner and our joint customers."
"I have been involved with IAMCP So Cal for a short time, and it is already a relationship that has allowed me to partner with several other members. By joining forces with our diverse products, we have brought in almost $1,000,000, in actual cash, to both clients and IAMCP members. I could not have created these relationships without IAMCP."
"As a new ISV in the channel market space, IAMCP has been highly instrumental in helping us broker new and valuable connections. Everyone is inviting and inspires us to deepen our expertise,. With IAMCP, we truly feel like we’re a part of an empowering community of innovative and diverse companies and we look forward to growing within the organization."
"The IAMCP has been serving the MSP and VAR community for a decade and, as is evident by its growth, continues to add proof of its value to the community. As Microsoft technology partners, Critical Start believes that the continued education and networking opportunities the IAMCP offers to its members is invaluable"
