Guess who’s back, back again! #AvePointRED is here to tear up the dance floor in Orlando! Year after year—for what is soon to be our tenth year—this exclusive customer and partner appreciation event has blown out every city. Be it in nightclubs or train stations, in party cities like Las Vegas or on the quieter streets of Anaheim, the RED party has never been short of is a sensationally fun time! Check out why below!

1. Must-See Entertainment

#AvePointRED Party 2014: Snake Charmers, Las Vegas Style

Year 1 in New Orleans set the bar high when RED Partygoers in 2008 had the pleasure of witnessing a marching band parading down Bourbon Street. Where do you go from there? Snakes sound like a pretty good idea, as do flamethrowers, sword swallowers, beat drummers, stilt walkers. Oh wait, we did all of those already! So, what’s in store for this year? While I can’t tell you just yet, you can definitely bet it’ll be huge!

“I can honestly say that some of my best SharePoint Conference and Microsoft Ignite memories involve the #AvePointRED Parties. They truly set the bar for how to unwind after a day at a conference. I wouldn’t miss it!!” – Mark Rackley, Office 365 MVP

2. Outstanding Music from the Best DJ Around

#AvePointRED Party 2017: We loved Cuba Libre so much we’re coming back! And we love DJ Joey Snow so much that he’s going to be a threepeat!

DJ Joey Snow is returning to the stage! A close friend and a riot of an act, he’ll be turning up the beats late into the night! If he’s not careful, his name may soon be synonymous with #AvePointRED Party!

Want a taste of the tunes you can expect at the party? You can check out DJ Joey Snow’s podcast “The Bump” for a little preview.

The whole place was packed wall to wall. The music, food, and dancing was on par with what you would experience at a hot new nightclub, and not at all what you would expect to be invited to at a tech conference. The party did not die down until close to 2am!” -Amanda Barnes, Integrated Campaign Manager

3. All the Cool Kids Are There

From fashion shows to just a raging good time, this is the place to be. The AvePoint RED Party is an exclusive event that brings together the best of the industry, peers and customers alike, in celebration of the community we’ve all created here. That sense of community gives everyone an opportunity to share ideas over nice cocktails in a super loud bar.

“AvePoint parties are always off the hook!  Year after year, they are consistently the best high-energy party at the conference, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store this year!” – Laura Rogers, SharePoint Consultant, Microsoft MVP

#AvePointRED Party 2017: Jeff Teper finds himself in a bit of a bind.
