Talk It Up

For many of us, the biggest value of MVP Summit is the networking opportunity; we get to hang out with some of the brightest minds in the industry and broaden our horizons. So, who can you expect to find at the Progress Influencers Party? How about tons of Microsoft MVPs, Regional Directors, and Insiders from across a wide variety of technologies? Or, perhaps you'll see a few of "blue badge folks" in attendance, representing .NET, Xamarin, ASP.NET and Visual Studio teams.

We're looking forward to playing host to you for the evening. There, you'll find Progress Developer Advocates, Product Owners, Marketing & Events folks. Using Telerik tools, Kendo UI, Test Studio or NativeScript for your projects? Good or bad: we're "all ears" for your feedback. You'll find us in custom retro-themed bowling shirts!


Get Some Swag

Hand-crafted drinks? Check. Yummy appetizers? Done.

Let's sweeten the deal for you: we developers are known to trade our souls for laptop stickers. Come find some in swanky Telerik Ninja or Kendoka glory!


Also, everyone who walks in, gets our custom-made MVP Summit t-shirt!

You're welcome.


We hope you'll love the t-shirt and wear it with pride during the MVP Summit. As an added incentive, if you're wearing our shirt, just flag down one of us during the event. We might provide you with a little something. We'll be in Seattle where it's often overcast with rain. Who would't like a good cup of coffee? (You get the hint.)

Roll to Fame

Yes, we'll be at a fancy bowling alley and it is your opportunity to earn some street credibility. Strikes, spares, splits, gutter balls - bring them all. Tricks shots and scenic routes encouraged. Beat your buddies at a full game? Come see us for instant rewards.


Kill Bugs

We appreciate your pursuit of perfection. We love smashing bugs too! As it turns out, our mascots are pretty good at this. Come play a really cool video game we've built where you kill bugs for high scores. You're going to need fast fingers and great hand-eye coordination!



And yes, you will be playing the game in a giant bowling alley screen and the leaderboard will be up too. Prizes for highest scores at the top of each hour - you guessed it. Value? Let's just say you can take your whole team out for coffee.


Time to Chill

That's it then. You're invited to come party with us. It will be after the first day of MVP Summit. Your brain would have been bombarded with tons of exciting information. Time to take a deep breath and hang out with your cohorts over drinks, bowling, and gaming. It's all happening at the Progress Influencers Party. Come join the fun!
