During Synergy San Francisco 2011 in May, we held the Feed the Synergy Buzz Contest, with a chance to win an Apple iPad 2 by blogging, tweeting, or posting photos or videos of your Synergy experience. The contest took place from May 24-27 and, to enter, contestants tagged their content: #CitrixSynergy

The social media channels were buzzing… there was plenty of great commentary and feedback about Geek Speak Live!, formal breakout sessions, Hands-on Learning Labs, keynotes, the Solutions Expo, the Synergy Party and lots of other event activities!

As usual, during our hunt for potential Buzz candidates, we kept an eye out for quality first and quantity second (of course, having lots of quality content is always best!), and winners have been chosen at random from the dynamic pool of active social networkers, with one Apple iPad 2 and ten gift cards (Amazon.com or Starbucks card depending on location) awarded.

And the winners are…

Grand Prize – Apple iPad 2
