    This unique conference is held at Microsoft HQ—another reason to attend!

    The Microsoft corporate campus in Redmond, Washington, is more like a park than a corporate headquarters. It's surrounded by trees, has its own lake, and offers an abundance of recreation activities. About 41,500 employees work on this campus. Our event will be held at Microsoft's state-of-the-art Learning Center.

    Located just 13 miles from Seattle, you can head into the city in the evenings to Pike Place Market to see the famous fish throwers or take an elevator ride to the 520-foot-high observation deck in the Space Needle. Or, grab a coffee at the original Starbucks, opened in 1971!
