Bulls-eye view: Want to see what went down at Inspire?
QuadroBulls on Tour
Microsoft Inspire 2018 finished up last week, but we’re not quite ready to let go. Here’s a rather shambolic photo/video diary of what went down last week, as experienced by our bulls.
Let’s start at the beginning
Our Vegas ‘QuadroBulls’ couldn’t wait to get going. The brides, showgirls, the one and only Elvis, and a fair few gamblers scampered into their luxury transport, destined for the desert.
Viva Las Vegas
After a night of living it up, hitting the casinos, and acting like high-rollers, our bulls were feeling a little delicate on the first day of Inspire. After claiming ‘jetlag’, they decided to keep well out of the way, hiding out in the rafters of the stand, while our team chatted to attendees, gave demos, and awarded prizes and giveaways.
Stealing the limelight
After a few ‘red bulls’, our mascots found themselves revived and full of energy. So much energy, in fact, that one sneaky blue bull decided to perch on our CEO Thomas Madsen’s head, while he was awarding Insight with our ‘Partner of the Year 2018’ award. That’s some serious photo-bombing skills right there.
After a few days of meeting new people, getting up to mischief, sweltering in the desert heat (and being unsuccessfully juggled by our SVP of Customer Success, Tony Sterling)…
It was time for the final celebrations and the highly-anticipated BRUNO MARS.
Locked out of heaven…
Leaving a trail of angry, broken-hearted, would-be brides in her wake.
‘I think I wanna marry you’
One lucky bull got the chance to be serenaded by Bruno himself (along with all the other human attendees).
Finally, Inspire came to an end, sessions ended, the venue emptied out, and the stands were dismantled. Time to head back home.
It was off to the airport for our bulls, couriered single-handedly by our Director of Channel Sales, Nick Dishman.
The long trip back
Tired, bedraggled, and a little worse for wear. Our bulls checked out of Vegas, leaving their dignity, dollars, and diamantés behind.
