The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Los Angeles is shaping up to be a huge gathering.

According to Microsoft's @WPCLA Twitter feed, attendee registrations passed 14,000 on Tuesday, and 11 days remain for getting passes to the mid-July event.

Microsoft's high hopes for attendance in 2011 appear on track to be realized. Before registration opened, the company projected the audience for the international show at 13,000 partners and 2,000 press, industry analysts and Microsoft employees.

Last year at the show in Washington, D.C., Microsoft reported about 14,000 attendees, including 9,300 partners. The previous year, in the recession-pounded 2009 when several other vendors cancelled their partner confabs, Microsoft had about 5,500 partners and 7,700 total attendees.
