That's a Wrap! Highlights from TechEd Australia 2013

Posted by Gareth Brown on Mon, Sep 09, 2013

The rest of our week at TechEd Australia was really busy at the GSX booth collecting contacts and showing attendees what GSX is all about! Vic and I ran demo’s all day, everyday...Were you able to stop by?

We ended up speaking with over a third of all the registered attendees, partly thanks to our prize draw give-aways of the Drone and Helicopter and also due to our supreme, dynamic and forward approach. ;)

One of our guests at the stand (below) was a bit strange, we are not quite sure how he got up the steps at the entrance to the show...

The attendee’s feedback on last week's sessions were really positive, timely and relevant to the issues people are currently facing with their Microsoft and hybrid environments.

I made the large audience that gathered for our prize drawing wait with baited breath while I spent a few minutes introducing the solution; it was very nice to have a captive audience even though they were really there for the prizes! We gave out lots of trial versions of GSX's software as consolation prizes for those who came by but didn't end up winning.

Here's our Drone winner, Mamun Rahman, from the Australian Department of Defense!

The Lucky winner of the Helicopter was Ken Apps, from Thynne and Macartney. We expected to see both toys flying around the show arena later that day...

All in all, there's no doubt that this week has been a fantastic event. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to learn more about our Monitoring and Reporting solutions, you all made it one of the best TechEds yet!
