Microsoft Ignite Attendees: Do you know McCormick Place is the nation's largest convention center?
With a combined 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space, 1.2 million square feet all on one level, you can assume that you will be walking A LOT at Microsoft Ignite next week.
That's why we're holding the Merit Walk Off at Ignite - a competition that measures how far you walk during Ignite and lets you compete against other attendees for a 5-night all-inclusive stay for 2 in the Caribbean! We're not asking you to walk MORE at Ignite, we're just asking you to track how far you are already walking.
The person who walks the most miles each day of the conference will be entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize, a five-night all-inclusive stay for two (2) in a Junior Suite at one of the following hotels (the winner gets to choose!):
- Hotel RIU Palace Punta Cana (Punta Cana, Dominican Republic)
- Hotel RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas (Los Cabos, Mexico)
- Hotel RIU Palace Costa Rica (Guanacaste, Costa Rica)
Reward yourself for all the walking you'll do at Ignite by competing in the Merit Walk Off!
Simply download the Merit Solutions Mobile application from your device store. (Here are the links to the application in the iPhone, Android, Windows stores.) Once you download the app, you can enter the Walk Off two ways:
- Prior to Monday, May 4th: Open the Navigation Pane and select App Settings. Enter your contact information, select Enter Walk Off Contest, and click Save.
- Beginning on Monday, May 4th: A tile will appear on the homepage of the application that will direct people to the contest landing page. Once registered, this is where you can view the real-time leaderboard!
The app will then track the distance you travel each day and will let you compete with other attendees. The person who walks the most each day will be placed in the Grand Prize drawing. The more days you win - the better your chances are at winning the trip!
One Microsoft Ignite attendee will win this trip - why can't it be you? Good luck and good walking!
(NOTE: The Merit Solutions Mobile application DOES NOT track or store any geographic location data of contestants.)
