Community for Dynamics NAV partners

Directions North America 2017 Agenda

The only North American conference for Microsoft Partners to discover more about Dynamics 365 for Financials.

Dive deep into Microsoft Dynamics NAV "Tenerife" (code name for the next NAV release), and all things NAV. This year, the agenda will be even richer with more tracks and more sessions deep in technical, managerial, visionary information, and Microsoft’s strategic goals and objectives.

And, not to be overlooked are the Expo Receptions, Partner Celebration, and many other networking opportunities.
