The COVID-19 pandemic has shown some signs of slowing down, but it looks as though Microsoft is sticking to digital events this year. The company just detailed in a blog post announcing the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards Nominations that the Microsoft Inspire conference will be digital again this year.
Running from July 12-13, Microsoft says that it's looking forward to the "incredible opportunity to include partners from around the globe" at this year's Inspire conference. It went on to detail that the event will also be free, just as in the past, and more details for registration will be coming in June.
As for the details on the partner of the year awards nominations, nominations can now be submitted online. There's also an official website, that you can visit to check guidelines if you know a Microsoft partner that is using Microsoft's cloud platforms and other products exceptionally.
We'll be watching Inspire right alongside you. As a reminder, last year's Inspire was a busy one, with Microsoft announcing Windows 365 Cloud PC, new integrations in Microsoft Teams, and changes to the Teams marketplace.
