Laissez les Bon Temps Roulez (Let the Good Times Roll!) should be the unofficial slogan of this year’s Microsoft Partner Conference going on in New Orleans July 13th-16th.

With the economy finally rebounding off its lows, this is the perfect time to regroup, recharge, and regain momentum for the rest of the year. If you’ve never been there, or haven’t registered yet, now is the time. Check out: http://www.digitalwpc.com/

A good group of us channel types from Citrix will be at the Worldwide Partner Conference and we’ve got some great activities planned. Our joint virtualization campaign with Microsoft will get a big boost at this event. I won’t let the cat out of the bag, but you’ll want to stop by our booth and learn more about it.

We’ll also be looking for good potential partners for the Citrix Partner Network. With the convergence of market interest in application delivery, server and desktop virtualization, and networking optimization, there’s plenty of opportunity and we need good partners to help get the message out. We see more VMware partners showing interest in the superiority of our products and the value of partnering with a vendor that is truly channel focused, and has been for twenty years. If any of you reading this aren’t Citrix partners and would like to be, stop by our booth and we’ll help you determine if it makes sense for you.

Speaking of superior technology, come by and catch a quick demo of XenApp Fundamentals, XenDesktop, and our latest version of Branch Repeater. Each one of these can add a good bump to your bottom line.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans.
