Get ready for ASPC 2014!

March 27-30th 2014 the Arctic SharePoint Challenge will commence once again, and you can join!

Fierce competition, playful fun and internationally recognized speakers will make #ASPC2014 the greatest ASPC yet.

Same procedure as last year, miss Sophie?

If you have participated in ASPC before, you will recognize this year's event, more or less. However, be ready for some surprises. When Dexter rings the bell, it’s time for a pop-challenge prepared by the Jury. The first team to complete the task collects all the coins and the glory of the badge. Are your ready to go head-2-head with the other teams?

New this year

As ASPC keeps evolving, we have made a change to the saturday agenda that will provide some well-deserved rest for the competitors. The traditional surprise event is cancelled, instead you'll just have some free time before the evening banquet. If you'd like to sleep, take a walk, or try out the cross-country skiing possibilities of the hotel surroundings, it's all up to you. We also include an extra night at the hotel.

This means that there is no need to check-out before Sunday morning. There is no official agenda on Sunday, just an opportunity for you to sleep a little longer, and get home in your own time. This ALSO means there will be NO bus to Oslo city centre on Saturday evening.


Venue is the venerable Voksenåsen Hotel, located in the hills surrounding Oslo.

We encourage all participants to stay at the hotel for the event. We will handle room bookings, and as you see from the conference fee most of what you'll need is covered so you can focus on waging SharePoint battle.
