Global Azure Lunch Sponsorship

Lunch sponsorship is here! That's the perfect combo: free community training + free lunch.

A lot of you have been waiting (and hoping!) for this, so it is our pleasure to announce without any further ado:

Global Azure 2020 has sponsored lunches courtesy of our awesome sponsor Microsoft!


Last year our sponsor ensured lunches to hundreds of locations and for almost 20 000 attendees (!) and we will do what we can to set a take a bigger bite and break the record this year!

Q: Is our Global Azure event eligible for free lunch?
A: In general, yes! The fine print is that the caterer can deliver to 46 countries. If you are not located any in the countries below*, at this time you cannot benefit from this sponsorship option. Regretfully, there's absolutely no way to receive cash sponsorship or other food offerings either - believe us, we've tried!

Q: When and how can I submit my request?
A: Update Feb 21: The lunch request form will open up as soon as possible and there will be plenty of time to get your orders in. There has been a slight technical delay right now. We will announce everywhere when the submission process opens. There should be lunches for everyone. Stay tuned!

Q: How many lunches may I request?
A: The number of lunches that can be sponsored through this offer is 15-150 portions. However, we kindly ask you to join us in our fight against food-waste and request only the lunches you require.

Q: When is the last day to make a request?
A: April 7. And there will literally be no exceptions. Because of administrative and logistical reasons your request for lunches must be completed before this date.

Community kudos: You are amazing!

It is because of you all and your great community events that Global Azure is able to attract major sponsors to provide lunches for everyone. Everything that you do matters - feeding the world with knowledge. And sandwiches.

There really is such a thing as free lunch - and incredible communities completely deserve it - enjoy your meals!


your faithful Global Azure Admins
