Tracking the tracks at Tech Ed New Zealand


TechFest 2008 and other social events at Microsoft Tech Ed New Zealand 2008

There will be three social events during this year's Microsoft Tech Ed New Zealand.

You will have an opportunity to meet the speakers during an "Ask the Experts" event at the "Marketplace". This will be a chance to ask the local and international experts coming to speak during the conference and will be happening 1st September 2008 from 6:30pm through 8pm.

Take note: The TechFest 2008 happens 2nd September 2008, from 6:30pm through 1pm at the Princes Wharf, Quay Street. This is the main social event - a big party with Opshop (pictured) and dDub. Finger food and drinks will be served throughout the party.

All attendees automatically receive tickets, and additional tickets can be purchased for $145 + GST.

The last social event in the agenda is the Farewell Drinks, just after the last sessions, an oppotunity to relax and prepare to go back to your battle stations. The Farewell Drinks is happening 3rd September 2008, from 5pm through 6:30pm in the Marketplace.

Tech Fest in its recent incarnation always seems a bit weird to me...all that testosterone with nowhere to go (shudders).
