Why Orlando? Glad you asked! We will be hosting this year’s Exchange Conference, October 6-8 in – guess where?? – Orlando, FL!

Ready to join us? Here’s how to play: Progress will post one Trivia question to both @ProgressSW and at or around 9:30AM ET every Tuesday until Exchange, beginning August 19, 2014 and ending September 30, 2014. Look for our posts featuring the popular hashtag #TriviaTuesday and try your hand at answering each Tuesday’s question for your chance to win! The first person to answer the question correctly will receive a Progress-themed prize. You can submit your answer by replying directly to the question on Twitter or commenting on the question on Facebook.
