Get into an SAP TechEd Conference of Your Choice — with a Free Pass from Us!

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CONTEST ENDED ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, AND WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT ANY MORE ENTRIES. MANY THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED!

 

SAP always has plenty of cool technology to show — and even unveil — at the SAP TechEd conferences. SAP also packs each event’s agenda with sessions and networking opportunities, so attendees can gain knowledge and make connections. And this year, we (meaning the Developer & Community Relations Team) may have a surprise or two lined up during the conferences.

Those things alone might be tempting enough reasons to go to an SAP TechEd event at the location nearest you, but all of the temptation in the world really doesn’t matter if you can’t get a ticket.

Assuming you want a ticket so you can go, that is.

Oh, you do want to go? Well, we want you to go too. We want to meet as many people as possible at these events — and we want community members to gain the benefits of SAP TechEd.

That’s why we’re planning to award prizes that can bring more people to SAP TechEd.

Let me tell you — literally — what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.

If you didn’t watch that, then you missed me announcing that we’re holding a contest to give away hundreds of show-floor passes. Specifically, the contest will grant passes to 221 individual winners, who can choose which of the three SAP TechEd events they want to attend (subject to availability).

We have 74 passes for SAP TechEd 2018 Las Vegas, 74 for SAP TechEd 2018 Barcelona, and 73 for SAP TechEd 2018 Bangalore.

Sound good? Maybe too good?

I know what you’re thinking: What’s the catch? As you might expect, there are official rules with the typical legal language, but the gist is this: To be eligible for one of the passes, you must complete a mission.

Don’t worry…it’s hardly impossible.

The mission consists of a series of tutorials covering topics such as Fiori, SAP Cloud Platform, and SAPUI5. Do the tutorials, complete the mission, and you’ll have the option of entering the official SAP TechEd 2018 lottery (one entry per person).

That’s all there is to it.

The contest ends on September 10, and anyone who completed the mission (and chose to participate in the contest) will enter a lottery. A week or so later, winners will be chosen at random, then contacted.

Winners will still need to cover travel, lodging, etc., but a show-floor pass is worth approximately $1,500. Not bad for taking tutorials that teach valuable information anyway. In fact, even if you opt not to enter the contest, I highly recommend that you take advantage of the free education from the tutorials. Win or lose, you can still get yourself a nice prize of sorts — with the information and entertainment that the tutorials provide.

So what are you waiting for? Start on those tutorials now. And who know…maybe I’ll get a chance to congratulate you in person at an SAP TechEd event!

      Hey Criag,

      Thanks for the initiative. It was fun to have a flow of tasks done in one sequence.

      Now, its time to sit back and pray to the SAPGods. 🙂

      Regards,

      Sharath

      We are in the process of informing all the lucky winners as I type here so within the next 24 hours or so everyone should have an email. It took us a bit longer to verify details and run the randomizer to pick the winners.

      Just a quick update, the official invites for those who won have been taking longer to process than originally expected so if you‘ve received my mail but not yet the mail to register it is on its way!

      For those of you who chose Las Vegas those invites should be all out. Barcelona are still processing and I just found out that Bangalore has not started but should next week.

      Hi Craig,

      I received the invitation email, thanks a lot.

      could you elaborate what mean „Lecture Only Invite“? Does it mean no visit to the hands-on sessions?

      Best regards

      Steffen

      Hi,

      Is there any chance of getting tickets to SAP TechEd 2018 Bangalore now? As I have missed the contest and I have never attended SAP TechEd. I cannot afford SAP TechEd ticket cost on my own. I want to learn more about SAP Mobility.

       

      Thank you,

      Saurabh
