Keysight University Live
« on: February 16, 2021, 08:43:25 pm »
Keysight University Live starts 15th March 2021. I've not heard this mentioned before. Is it a rebranding of Scopemonth / Wave or is it something slightly different? It looks good anyway. Everyone loves the chance of free test gear.

Interesting. I guess since Scopemonth/Wave started including video tutorials, which became Keysight University, now they're going all out with the University theme.

Everyone loves the chance of free test gear.

Indeed!

They are also offering "scholarships"  :)

This promotion is limited to specific countries and is only open to entrants aged 18 years or older (if in the United States:  19 years for Alabama and 21 years for Mississippi) at the time of submission who are legal residents of, and physically located within, Canada (excluding the Province of Quebec), USA (excluding New York, Florida, and Rhode Island), Puerto Rico, Japan, South Korea; Taiwan, China; Chile, Austria, Finland, India, France, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, UK, South Africa

I wish Keysight promotions will be available in more countries, mine never was and still isn't.   :-\

Looking at it from a positive point, there's no need to spend/waste a lot of time and effort on the event. Getting ones hope up and realizing chances to win are nearly null after doing 'math/technical assignments', watching event/video stuff, entering daileys, etc.

- time and effort better spent on other stuff imho.
2'nd hand gear is usually for sale at a reasonable price, and you get exactly what you need - instead of ?? being taxed/VAT'ed as an added 'bonus'
Sad, but better to realize the truth than ...

@Fred27 beat me to the punch!

A couple things:

1- I know the country thing is always a topic. I work really hard to get as many folks included as I can, but local laws can be very restrictive. I also think this will be worth attending without the sweepstakes.

2- I've also asked @Fred27 to use this URL so that I can see where folk are coming from:

Seeing sign-ups from forums like this really helps me justify my time spent on the site and doing stuff with Dave et al. It's not an evil tracking scheme. I promise!

3- yes, another new name. Not my call :).

This is the most common complaint - and it comes up every time.  It has very little to do with Keysight and a WHOLE LOT to do with the laws in the local jurisdictions of those people who want to participate.  Even those in the USA are affected by this as the T&C's state: "(excluding New York, Florida, and Rhode Island)".

The range of restrictions can vary from a simple "No - you can't do this" to really burdensome ones like one I remember from previous contests.  That one required a cash deposit equivalent to the the total prize value of the whole promotion lodged with the regulatory body for that particular country.  Imagine how expensive things could become with a few of these thrown into the mix.

Bottom line: whinge at your regulators - not Keysight.

Bummer indeed for the excluded countries (including Belgium). Did not know the reason behind this.

If management decides that another new name seems like a brilliant idea then... Well... Nothing to be done about it I guess :).
I had been searching for "Keysight Wave 2021" a couple of times now, and "Keysight University Live" never came up in the search results for me. Maybe improve some SEO?

It was only by accident that I now searched the EEVblog forums ("it can't be that no one is looking for this, right") and this thread came up... I had expected to get some email about the event since I've attended some of last years days, but no email?

@fozzyvis that's a good idea. Maybe if I put in this thread again

WAVE 2021 is actually called KEYSIGHT UNIVERSITY LIVE then the search juices will flow  :-DD

There will also be emails going out to participants and some other promo stuff, we're sending them a little closer to 15-Mar so that people are less likely to forget.

This is a good example of the value of a brand, even if it's the name of a recurring marketing/educational event. Changing the name devalues the earlier investments into awareness and share of mind.

On the flip side, if people can't find it, the odds of winning are better! ;D
