Tweet out and share a short code enough times and you could win a free 5-night stay at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers – right in the heart of Manhattan – during Web 2.0 Expo New York 2011.
And on top of this, you’ll also be able to earn a heavily discounted or free conference pass to the premier event for the builders of the next generation web. Read on for details!
Here’s the Deal
Enter the contest here and we’ll send you a personalized 20% off discount code for all Web 2.0 Expo conference passes except for the Web 2.0 Lite Pass. Every time someone buys a conference pass (other than a Web 2.0 Lite Pass) using your code, we’ll give you an additional 15% off the cost of a full-price eligible pass. That’s on top of the 20% discount you get just for participating. So, if two people register with your code, you’ll get a 50% off discount for your own pass.
The person with the most attendees registered under their code will win a free hotel stay during Web 2.0 Expo New York. Nights include Sunday, October 9 to Thursday, October 13 (check in Sunday, October 9, 2011 and check out on Friday, October 14, 2011).
How to Participate
- Sign up for the contest here. All we need is your name and an email address to send you a personalized discount code for 20% off all conference passes. (We won’t use your email to send anything else.)
- Tweet/share the personalized discount code to your followers.
- Kick back and let us do the rest of the work. We’ll contact you on September 30 to tell you how many people signed up using your code… and also to tell you how much money will be shaved off your conference pass, or if you’ve earned a free pass!
- The person whose code brings in the most registered attendees will win the 5-night stay at the NY Sheraton.
If you already have a conference pass, you’re still more than welcome to participate. Although the credits you accrue will not work toward the pass you already purchased (retroactively that is), you will be able to earn another deeply discounted or fully paid-for pass for a friend or colleague.
Feel free to share your code with your friends via social media websites or tweet it out. Example tweet:
“Use discount code [EXAMPLE] for 20% off a Web 2.0 Expo NY conference pass—discount ends Sept 30! #w2e http://oreil.ly/iLHq5W”
We are limiting this contest to the first 100 people who apply – so hurry! The discount code you are given will only work through September 30, so the sooner you start spreading the word the better.
Post any questions in the blog comments section or message us @w2e on Twitter. Good luck!
