Microsoft will be holding special Windows 10 fan experience events in 13 cities around the world for the launch of the OS on July 29. The company has sent Windows Central more information on these events, including word that they will be invite-only.
Earlier this week, Microsoft stated:
"We will celebrate the unprecedented role our biggest fans – more than 5 million Windows Insiders – played in the development of Windows 10 at special events in 13 cities around the world, including Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Beijing, New Delhi, Dubai, Nairobi, Berlin, Johannesburg, Madrid, London, São Paulo, and New York City. These celebrations will offer hands-on opportunities, experiential demos, entertainment and opportunities to meet the Windows team."
We contacted Microsoft to ask them if they could provide more details on these events and received this response from a company spokesperson:
"From the beginning, Windows 10 has been different – built alongside our fans, delivered as a service and offered as a free upgrade. Our approach to launch is also different and in support of a more aspirational goal, inspired by Windows 10. You won't see fancy launch spectacles from Windows – our broader aspiration is to celebrate and empower those who upgrade the world every day. Our events are designed to celebrate our fans. They will offer hands-on opportunities, experiential demo's, entertainment and opportunities to meet the Windows team. These events will be invite-only, designed for our fans in each market."
Microsoft didn't offer any information on how many "fans" will be invited to each event. We can assume that if you are a member of the Windows Insider program, and live at or near one of these 13 cities, you might eligible for for an invite, so be sure to check your email boxes over the next couple of weeks.
