Why should I attend?
This is one of the largest Microsoft-centered events anywhere in the U.S., and attending Wingman2020 gives you the opportunity to obtain two Microsoft certification vouchers at no additional cost. What’s more, you’ll be introduced to new vendors and solutions to add to your stack, learn about the most up-to-date industry best practices, hear partner-centric sales advice to grow your cloud business, receive expert technical guidance on specific products, and have the opportunity to network with peers and vendors (and have a lot of fun!). We’ll be announcing our first-ever President’s Club partners and handing out exciting awards. This event is not to be missed!
Where do I register?
Where do I go with questions?
Can I attend if I’m not a partner?
Yes! We’ll have a packed agenda relevant to any MSP or Agent, with deep dive educational sessions on a wide range of cloud solutions, inspiring speakers, and peer networking events. And with Microsoft as the title sponsor, if you sell (or want to sell) O365, M365, Azure, or Dynamics, this is a can’t-miss event!
What’s included in the registration fee?
The registration fee includes educational sessions, networking events, and meals. Wingman2020 attendees are responsible for the cost of their travel and hotel room and can reserve a room at our special rate during the registration process.
Is there a group discount for more than one attendee?
Not at this time. We chose to make the overall cost of the conference lower for each attendee, rather than building in group discounts.
Who is the best person to send from my company?
If possible, we recommend sending a business leader or sales professional to attend the business-oriented tracks and a technical specialist to attend the technical deep-dive product tracks.
How is Wingman2020 different from a Mission Briefing or a Bootcamp?
As our first national conference, Wingman2020 builds on the foundation of Mission Briefings and Bootcamps to deliver more product learning, more vendor interaction, more peer networking, and even product certifications, at a grand scale.
Why is Pax8 now doing a national event?
Pax8 has grown exponentially in the past few years, and we believe the time is right to invite our entire partner base to a national event for three days of immersive learning, networking, and inspiration. As Pax8 grows, our partners grow and we recognize the need for deeper training and recognition for the incredible work being done.
You’ve never charged me for a Pax8 event before. Why now?
We purpose-built Wingman2020 to help drive growth for our partners, so we hope you consider this an investment for your business. We are carefully curating exceptional education and certification opportunities with the intention of driving real growth for your business.
What Microsoft certifications are available at Wingman2020?
Each partner attendee will be granted two complimentary Microsoft certification vouchers. Our Pax8 + Microsoft certification sessions will feature hands-on learning to help you navigate the complexities of Azure, Microsoft 365, and Dynamics.

- MS-100: Microsoft 365 Identity and Services

How do I get to the event?
You should fly into Denver International Airport (DIA). As a major hub, there are daily direct flights to and from most major cities. The Gaylord Resort is only 10 minutes from the airport.
How do I book my hotel room?
You’ll be able to reserve a room at the Gaylord during the registration process for Wingman2020. However, rooms are limited, so we recommend you book soon to ensure you’re able to stay at the event resort.
What’s the cost of the hotel room per night?
Rooms at the Gaylord will be $229 + tax per night when you book through the Wingman2020 registration site.
What else is there to do in Denver?
If you’re outdoorsy, there is world-class hiking and camping within 1-2 hours of the hotel in the Front Range of the Rockies, including Rocky Mountain National Park. You can also check out activities like ziplining, rock climbing, Red Rocks amphitheater, a free tour of Coors brewery, or a Rockies game at Coors Field.
While you won’t have many opportunities to explore Denver during the 3 days of the conference due to the packed schedule, you could definitely extend your stay to have time for adventures! The Gaylord is close to the airport, but it’s about 45 minutes from Downtown Denver.
What family activities are there to do in the area?
The Gaylord Hotel has an amazing water park facility, basketball courts and other fun family activities. There are also exciting things to do in Denver and surrounding towns throughout Colorado. Below are links to explore that will help you plan your family time. We encourage all attendees to take advantage of our beautiful state of Colorado either prior to or the weekend after Wingman 2020.
