Anyone who is anybody will be attending Microsoft Ignite this year (Sorry, if that’s not you, you’re still a nice person and tell great stories with such enthusiasm). This year, Ignite moves out of the “September Florida heat” and a few months later into the coolness of November.

While it’s cooling off in the fall, Ignite is the hottest show of the year – and when you think of Ignite, you have to think about Quest and all the special things we are doing at the show. Last year, people were lined up around the booth to get in on the action and even more people were lined up around the block to get into our yearly celebration. It’s safe to say that, while the air might be cool outside, our booth at Ignite will be on fire! (See what I did there?)

Quest – your Microsoft expert at Ignite

You know Quest as your go-to for everything Microsoft! We have never been more pumped about the products we’re making and the problems we’re solving than this very moment.

You’ll find us at booth #2149, where we’ll have the latest technology for you to check out around moving, managing, and securing your Microsoft platforms. You’ll also have a chance to win some insane prizes at our daily raffles, such as:

A Garmin watch at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, a Game of Thrones inspired trip to Iceland at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, a Game of Thrones inspired trip to Croatia at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday and a pair of Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday.

Microsoft expertise, crazy prizes, T-shirts and even a bin ball game all at one booth? It surely can’t get better, right?

Think again.
