Have you registered for reIMAGINE 2014 yet?

By Steve Endow

Is there any spot on the planet more inviting, more bucolic, more exciting, or more of a global destination than Fargo, North Dakota in November?


On November 9-12, 2014, the world will be watching as Dynamic Partner Connections hosts the reIMAGINE 2014 conference at the posh Holiday Inn Fargo, the premier resort and spa for Fargo travelers.

There will be dozens of sessions, jam packed with Dynamics GP goodness, Microsoft campus tours, and even a cocktail reception.  Did I mention that the Holiday Inn has an indoor pirate ship water park?  Seriously, no joke.  Where else can you experience an indoor pirate ship?  Imagine the stories you'll be able to tell when you get back from the conference.

My fun story is that at the GP Tech Airlift conference in Fargo two years ago, there were TWO different fake bomb threats.  Yes, in Fargo.  One was at Fargo's world famous Hector International Airport on the day before the conference, which prevented anyone from entering the airport and stopped all departing flights.  Fortunately, they were letting people leave the airport, but the catch was that there were no rental cars, since nobody else could come back to the airport to return their rental cars!  Luckily, I was getting a ride from a clever colleague who bribed the woman at the rental car counter, who then snuck us the keys for the last car on the lot--a top of the line minivan (aka the Fargo party bus).  The second bomb threat was at North Dakota State University on the day after the conference.  Fargo police blocked off a perimeter around the entire University for several hours, so we had to postpone our visit and come back after lunch.  Even then, all of the doors were locked for another hour, so we had to hang out for a while until they got the all clear and let us go shop in the bookstore.  Seriously, when was the last time you got to experience TWO bomb threats in one week?  Didn't I mention "excitement"?

And you'll only be able to tell those captivating stories if you attend this exciting launch of the new dedicated Dynamics GP partner conference.  There will be presentations for sales, marketing, consulting, and developer roles, so there will be something for everybody.

So register now at the reIMAGINE2014 web site.  Then book your flight to scenic Fargo and make that hotel reservation.

I hope to see you there!
