As a Friday treat, we’re offering 6 TechNet Readers the chance to win a place at an exclusive pilot event that we are running on the 12th of December in London! The event will be quite a different format to what you may be used to from Microsoft and is very much in ‘Beta’ stages at the moment, so we’re really keen to get your feedback on this exciting new direction.

All you have to do to book your spot is email the UK IT Pro Team at ukitpro@microsoft.com with a screenshot of your domain name in Active Directory. The 6 most creative and amusing entries will be the lucky recipients of a ticket each – simple as that.

As with anything, T&C’s apply and can be viewed below.

We look forward to hearing from you!
