Microsoft Ready

Microsoft Ready is an education and networking event for Microsoft employees, hosted across 4 different hotels on the Las Vegas Strip to accommodate keynote presentations by senior executives, followed by breakout sessions including presentations, panels, workshops, deep-dive learning sessions, specialized training, and hands-on or instructor-led labs.

Zed Ink was asked to produce the “conference within the conference” for CDS, the #1 revenue-generating division of Microsoft. Our team was invited by Zed Ink to design the stage, work with executives on their content, and develop animations. We also produced several high-end videos, including a humorous “parody” video featuring some of the top executives, and a video from various locations around the world, highlighting how people everywhere use Microsoft products, all threaded together to highlight a compelling event theme.

We wrapped the string of sessions with a celebration event that was held on the terrace of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Casino, featuring a live band and DJs, and several unique social sharing photo opportunities, bringing together over 1200 Microsoft employees from around the world.
