The Fun Stuff: Visual Studio Live! Boston Events

Your attendance at Visual Studio Live! Boston is about learning from your peers as well as the experts; make the most of your time with us and add these events to your itinerary!

Dine-A-Round Dinner
Monday, June 11

Join other conference attendees and speakers for a casual, no-host dinner and make a few new friends while enjoying the fun and delicious restaurants in Cambridge and Boston. This is your opportunity to meet fellow attendees and start friendships that can last for the week or even longer. Attendees can break into smaller groups based on where everyone wants to dine and head off to dinner. Everyone is responsible for their own dinner and drinks.

Welcome Reception
Tuesday, June 12

All conference attendees are invited to celebrate the start of Visual Studio Live! Boston at the Welcome Reception.  Join us to network with fellow conference attendees and speakers, talk with the event sponsors, enjoy complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres, and participate in the conference raffle.

Birds of a Feather Lunch
Wednesday, June 13

Plumb the knowledge and experience of your colleagues, conference speakers and exhibitors by participating in one of the BoF Tables discussions. Tables will have a designated topic to help start discussions and interact with your fellow attendees.  You may even learn a new trick or two or some great tips to take back to the office. 

We will also have designated speaker tables - noted with the speakers' name.  Join your favorite speaker for a lunchtime discussion or just to ask questions or clarify anything from their sessions. 

VSLive!'s Boston By Land and Sea Tour
Wednesday, June 13
6:15 – 8:30 p.m.
Pre-registration & $20 Confirmation Fee Required

Join Visual Studio Live!'s Boston By Land and Sea Tour to see the places that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts. On a Boston Duck Tour amphibious landing vehicle, you'll get a great overview of the city, from the golden-domed State House to Bunker Hill and the TD Banknorth Garden, Boston Common and Copley Square to the Big Dig, Government Center to fashionable Newbury Street, Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower, and more.

And just when you think you've seen it all, there's more. It's time for "splashdown" as your Duck Tour launches you right into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines, the kind of view you just won't get anywhere else.

The tour will originate at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge. You will have the option of exiting the tour at the Sail Loft on Atlantic Ave (near Faneuil Hall Marketplace in downtown Boston) to enjoy the city nightlife and grab dinner, OR get dropped off back at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge.

Space is limited and reservations will be on a first come, first serve basis.
