Many organisations are leveraging Social Media to create outreach to the general public for niche events these days. There usually has been a disconnect with the masses at large for such events especially if the events focus on cloud computing and storage servers- (Storage Forum India).
Dell has come out with a new campaign(dellstoragebuzz.com) where it is offering to give away its recently released Ultrabook XPS 13 and Smartphones in a contest which users can easily create an account and share its content on various social media handles.

Do you think this is an interesting way of approaching event marketing?
More importantly, would YOU as a regular user would participate?
