Trivia at Exchange Contest

Posted on October 07, 2013 0 Comments

We’ve excited to be at Progress Exchange! We’ve got an action packed schedule, filled with 10 content tracks, 70 hours of breakout sessions, 11 workshops, plus some great contests and giveaways!

If you’re attending the show, follow along on Twitter to play our Progress Exchange Trivia contest starting on Sunday and win some great prizes. During the show we will be tweeting out 10 Exchange-themed trivia questions and ten lucky first-responders with the correct answer and the #PRGS13 hashtag will win. Watch out for the tweets starting with “TRIVIA” every day of the conference to play.

Ten questions, ten chances to win, so be sure to participate while you’re there! If you haven’t already, register here before it’s too late.
