TechEd 2010 Closing Party Announced

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Microsoft has announced that the closing party for TechEd 2010 in New Orleans, LA will be held at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.
"Join us for the Closing Party and enjoy great food, beverages, and the excitement of New Orleans at Mardi Gras World."

"The colors, the lights, the music, the joie de vivre. It’s all here in one magical place where you can peek behind the curtain and see Mardi Gras in the making. You haven’t truly experienced Carnival until you’ve explored Mardi Gras World."

Mardi Gras World is where the the world-famous floats, props, and masks are made for Mardi Gras, as well as many other festivals around the world.  Take that lively colorful venue, throw in some great music, food, and adult beverages and you've got a real party!

This promises to be much better than last year's on-site "party" which was judged an epic failure.  The TechEd 2010 closing party looks like it will be a return to the parties of past.  Being that two of the first three TechEds were held in New Orleans, it's good to see Microsoft is returning to its party roots.


  1. Great news! Last year's "party" was beyond lame. You have all of LA and you do a in-house meet and greet? Glad to finally get to NOLA for TechEd.

  2. Last year's "party" was a slap in the face for all who paid more and got much less from TechEd. My family came after hearing my stories of TechEds past and it was humiliating - a message from Microsoft that they no longer value IT professionals.

    Here's hoping...

  3. If it is like the party for PDC and teched from last year it definately has to be uphill from there. I hope they fired the planner for those parties.

  4. Looking forward to it.

  5. yes Last years party sucked really bad. The vendor parties put Microsoft to shame. Looks like this year will be better in NOLA

  6. Last years party did suck!
