Posted by:

So, following on from my Can you help get me to Tech Ed EMEA in Madrid? post where I asked for your help to help win me some prizes (and still not too late to help me 😉 it’s time for me to “share the love” with news of a new promotion Microsoft are running where you could win a fully funded trip to Tech Ed Europe in sunny Madrid (and after the prolonged, cold winter we could all do with some sunshine although the guarantee of fine weather is not included unfortunately 😉

So take a read, digest, and good luck…!!!

“Impress your boss without having to put a dent in the training budget by winning tickets to
TechEd Europe. It’s the premier annual Microsoft event for IT professionals from the 25th to 28th June 2013. You’ll be able to improve your knowledge, talk to leading experts face to face and gain valuable information that’ll put you streets ahead of others in your area. Plus you’ll do it all in sunny Madrid!

How you can win

Win your ticket to TechEd Europe by downloading our products

If you trial Windows Server 2012 <ISO> <VHD>, Windows Azure and/or System Center 2012 SP1 between 22nd March 2013 and 31st May 2013, you’re in with a chance of winning a ticket to TechEd Europe, hosted this year in the cultural city of Madrid.

To be eligible, download at least one of the three products. Download two or all three to better your chances. You’ll also need to fill out our entry form.

Win a fully funded place at TechEd Europe by writing a short review

We also have three fully funded trips to be won. This takes a bit more effort, but it’s well worth it.

Once you’ve trialled one (or all) of the three products, submit an article/blog post reviewing the experience/product – that will qualify you for a chance to win.

There are three funded places to TechEd Europe to be won, one prize for each of the winning product reviews. There’s also a brand new Windows 8 Phone to be won by three runners up.

You’ll be judged based on your depth of understanding of the product and the breadth of how these can be applied in the modern IT department. The more informative and useful you make the articles for fellow IT pros, the more chance you have of winning.

Each first place prize includes your ticket to TechEd Europe, flights, hotel and meals. Winners will also be part of the TechNet team at the hub of Microsoft’s European community.

To be eligible you must have downloaded at least one of the three products and written a review of your experience; if you download and review all three, you will have tripled your chances of winning.

We’ll also be monitoring Twitter for spot prizes. Just use the hashtag #TechEdChallenge in a tweet for a chance to win some limited edition Microsoft goodies.

We want you to be equipped with all of the knowledge to write a winning article, so to help you learn about the products before you start, we recommend you visit the Microsoft Virtual Academy for product-specific courses that will teach you about the latest features.
