  • I think one of the main reason someone should attend TechEd is the ability to explore the new Portal 7.3 by attending a hands on session. Lecture sessions are useful when it comes to gain an overview of the capabilities, but what convinces people to use and recommend the product is hands on experience.
    Nothing better to see and experience a new product but by trying it out.
