The Tableau Interactive "Viz" Contest

on May 17, 2011

Are you a business, finance or real estate enthusiast? Tableau has a new contest that is right up your alley.

Continuing on last year's Tableau Public visualization contest, there will be three viz contests this year, all focusing on a particular type of data. This business visualization contest, sponsored by The Economist Ideas Economy conference, is the first.

Anyone who can download Tableau Public and visualize business, finance or real estate data can enter. Even if you don't have data right now, you might want to look for some because the winner is going to be featured on-stage that The Economist Ideas Economy conference and will be taking away a free roundtrip ticket to attend the 2011 Tableau Customer Conference. This includes 3 night’s accommodations at the Encore and a chance to compete in the Iron Viz championship with the winners of the other two contests. The winner of Iron Viz will take away a new iPad2, and $2,000.
