I’m delighted to announce that we are hosting a BizSpark event on the day of our Dublin Data Centre opening which will  include a tour of the new facility on September 24th 2009. The Data Centre is not normally open to visitors, therefore this is a very limited opportunity and I’m especially pleased to be able to make this opportunity available to those of you on the BizSpark program.

This exclusive event for BizSpark startups in Ireland and Northern Ireland will provide you with a unique opportunity to hear from the President of Microsoft International Jean-Philippe Courtois and the General Manager of Microsoft Ireland Paul Rellis in relation to Microsoft’s Strategy and Vision for Software + Services.

Here are the essentials:

- The event is for startups  enrolled on the BizSpark program in Ireland/Northern Ireland

- Aim to set aside hours of 10am - 4pm on Sept 24th – agenda will be communicated to attendees

- Availability is extremely limited so a lottery system will apply.

- Please register your interest by contacting me via http://blogs.msdn.com/ronang/contact.aspx ASAP, preferably by COB Friday 11th Sept.

- Because of security regulations, we will not be able to admit anyone who has not officially registered and been approved to attend in advance
