Microsoft Inspire will be an all-digital event due to the current global health crisis. Earlier this year, Microsoft stated that it was "exploring alternative ways to bring our partner community together to connect and learn." Now, the Microsoft Inspire website shares details on how the event will work. The event will be free to virtually attend, compared to its normal registration cost of $2,500 (via Neowin).
Microsoft Inspire 2020 was originally set to occur in Las Vegas from July 20 through July 24, but the all-digital event will take place from July 21 through July 22.
Microsoft Inspire is geared toward business partners. The Inspire website highlights creating connections, training sessions, and sharing successes with the community. The website reads:
We're excited to welcome you and thousands of partners from around the world to our interactive digital platform. It's your opportunity to gain valuable insights into what's coming in the year ahead, while learning effective new strategies to propel your business forward.
At Inspire 2019, Microsoft showed off Azure Speech translation, which allowed a presenter to communicate in another language using a voice that sounded like her own. The same presentation also featured holoportation, which allows someone to make a 3-D model of themselves that can be placed inside a mixed reality environment. Microsoft also discussed new features for Microsoft Teams at Inspire 2019.
