Don't miss the fun!
TechEd North America Closing Party
Thursday, June 6 | 7:30pm – 12:00 midnight
Get ready to experience an incredible night as TechEd transforms the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the Closing Party. Part of the dome floor will be covered in field turf where you can attempt a field goal, try your luck at a quarterback pass, or cheer on your friends and colleagues. Experience a fabulous line-up of great local music—listen, sing along, or dance the night away. A favorite icon in New Orleans, recent renovations have made the Superdome one of the top ten domed stadiums in the country. Host of this year's Super Bowl XLVII and home to the NFL's New Orleans Saints, the Superdome welcomes TechEd attendees as their VIPs for the night. It's sure to be an exciting and memorable celebration!
TechEd Europe Country Drinks
Wednesday 26 June | 20:00 - 23:00
After two full days of sessions and labs, Country Drinks is your chance to relax, network and have drinks with other delegates from your country. Enjoy a menu of Spanish tapas and soft drinks, beer, wine, cava or sangria while at El Paseo de la Gastronomía, located in the southwest area of the city (just 5 minutes from the Plaza of Spain) in the Casa de Campo Fairgrounds. Housed in traditional and historic buildings, the restaurants of the Paseo de la Gastronomía combine excellent cuisine and beautiful surroundings—each with its own distinctive flavor. Join us for an unforgettable evening in Madrid!
