This week, Microsoft is hosting its MGX conference in Atlanta. For those of you who do not know what this event is, it's Microsoft's annual gathering of its sales force from around the world and is designed to rally the troops to re-energize its sales teams.
The event, to the outsiders, looks like one, massive, continuous party and frankly, that's what it is. The event is designed to be a corporate gathering of the company's sales and marketing folks to get them aligned with the corporate vision but to also drive a bit of excitement into proceedings. How do you do that? Well, shooting off pyrotechnics, having Steve Ballmer come out on stage and letting Pitbull take the stage are just a few of the events that have occurred so far this year.
The event runs from July 22nd to the 25th, so there are still a few more days of partying left and of course, Microsoft will be making sure its sales staff are current on all of the company's initiatives this year too.
If you are curious what the event looks like from an insiders perspective, quite a few of the attendees have been putting images up on various social networks that we aggregated into a gallery click here to see .
