Windows 7 Launch Party

Posted 28 September 2009 - 08:21 PM

So, leave it to the genius advertising experts at Microsoft to ask the public to do the work for them, but (as I was just informed) Microsoft is offering free party favors to groups & companies that are celebrating the release for Windows 7. Not only that, but as I understand it, there is some sort of prize if you video tape your party & they decide that they like it.

Is anyone throwing one such event? Has anyone else heard about this? It really is a great idea to get some genuine happy faces, & see who's truly excited about your (if you are Microsoft) new product.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Sounds interesting, I guess it really depends on what is needed to count as a "party" if it is just a group of people that is fine, if there has to be a ton of food and legal activities... college probably isn't the best place...

Don't know. I saw it more as an excuse to have a party, and just have to show off Windows 7 during....

@KYA - After a little research you have to register to become a "party host", and they aren't accepting any new applications...:

... at least not in the US...

So, there went my idea...

I am a host, and yes they will be providing favors (so far what ive seen has been printable items from the party site's site).

Will let you know what else i find out as this proceeds.

BTW: They sent invites to certain people who downloaded the pre-release version, and opted in, then there was also a "limited space" email which meant you had to reply really quickly.
