WPC 2012: Who Had the Best Swag?

As the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference winds down, let's focus on what's really important to attendees of any conference: Who had the best swag on the show floor?

In my limited time in the WPC Solutions Center, I came across the "Got Servers?" shirts from Cisco, the folding frisbees from Tech Data, cigars from The Rand Group LLC and pens galore. What other freebies were out there? Submit your nominations for the first ever "RCP Best Swag of WPC" award to [email protected] by Wednesday, July 18. Attach a photo of the swag if you can.

In case you're worried about fairness, let me set the record straight. This contest will be entirely based on the subjective opinion of your editor. All decisions final. The judge will accept bribes of leftover swag by mail. Knowledge of said mailings may influence decisions. Winners to be announced Monday, July 23.

In the meantime, if you missed the show, check out RCP's WPC Expo Hall Guide, which has extensive interviews from executives of more than 20 exhibiting companies.
