You’re invited : Be in to win a Microsoft Surface keyboard at Ingram Micro Showcase

03 May 18

Premier technology channel event Ingram Micro Showcase is fast approaching, where technology leaders gather to display and demonstrate the latest the industry has to offer.

The theme for this year’s showcase is Leading the Way, encouraging vendors to demonstrate what’s new, what’s next, and how it can be used to improve businesses and everyday life.

Microsoft will be one of the key vendors featured at the event, with a Modern Workplace setup not to be missed at Stand 16.

The stand will display modern Windows 10 devices, along with the entire Surface family, including a 55” Surface Hub!

Rolling demonstrations will be held at the stand throughout the day, covering the Microsoft 365 suite and the latest Microsoft Surface devices.

Microsoft 365 integrates the best of Windows 10, Office 365, and EMS into a complete, intelligent, and secure solution to empower employees.

Make sure you catch the demos to learn what it means for a business to have a Modern Workplace and the opportunities it presents.

Discover how Microsoft’s modern workplace can assist you in elevating your customers’ businesses into a productive, secure, mobile environment, no matter the industry.
