Microsoft Tag Scavenger Hunt at Web 2.0


This week at Web 2.0 in San Francisco, Microsoft Tag is sponsoring a Scavenger Hunt.
People are able to hunt around for nine different Tags. Each Tag has three random prizes attached to them. People who scan these Tags have a great chance of winning an HD Zune or an Xbox game. The first two contestants who scan each nine Tags will win one of  two Xbox Elite Gaming Systems. 

So how do you get started?

Well first make sure that you are a registered Web 2.0 attendee.


  1. Download Microsoft Tag to your smart phone
  2. Then, beginning Monday, start deciphering our nine clues. Each clue represents a location where we have a Tag for you to snap. When you snap a Tag, you'll be notified that you snapped the Tag successfully.
  3. Instant Prizes: we'll have three instant, random winners at each location. If you're a winner, you'll be asked for your contact info. Then you will receive a confirmation email. Winners must collect their prize from the Web 2.0 Expo Registration Help Desk in Moscone West registration by 12 noon on Thursday, May 6.
  4. Grand Prizes: The first two attendees who successfully check-in and snap a Tag at each of our 9 locations will win one of our two grand prizes.
