Tech-Ed Israel: MVPs Raise the Bar

At this year’s
Tech-Ed Eilat Israel--the
biggest IT event in Israel—MVPs set a record with a whopping 50% in attendance
serving as speakers. With 3,000 participants, 15 tracks and more than 150
technical sessions, Tech-Ed Eilat Israel delivered an excellent opportunity for participants to
expand their knowledge and connect key influencers in the technical community.

Visual C# MVP
Shai Friedman, along with 15 other MVPs, held a private MVP meeting with the
event’s keynote speaker, Jason Zander. This was one of six unique MVP
opportunities that set a new standard of engagement in Israel.

MVPs contributed
in every phase of the event--from pre-event right through to the end. Visual C#
MVP Sasha Goldshtein and Data Platform Development MVP Gil Fink wrote articles
that were featured in the local Newsgeek
publication. SQL Server MVP Meir Dudai wrote a feature on the local IT Portal.

Data Platform
Development MVP Gil Fink summed it up, “Tech-Ed Eilat 2010 was
a very exciting event with a lot of great sessions and cool parties.
It also gave its attendees the opportunity to meet with colleagues from
different organizations and to share knowledge. I had the pleasure to
have a session in the event about building N-Tier Applications using Entity
Framework 4.”

The Tech-Ed Show
featured Exchange Server MVP Daniel Petri with a great interview to help
promote the event. Daniel then came up with a creative idea on how to promote
his sessions. He filmed himself walking in the supermarket talking about his
sessions and received excellent reviews.

Well done to all involved
for setting the bar so high for upcoming events.
