VMworld 2021 is coming up very fast! You’ve no doubt seen all the social media posts, and hopefully, you’ve registered and started to peruse the content catalog. (If you’re not yet registered, go register for free at VMworld.com!)
For today, we’re sharing a broad overview of the keynotes and content catalog, so you can be ready for everything that happens during the show, online around the world on October 5–7, 2021.
Keynote and live sessions
There are two days of live sessions, broadcast in three global regions. (These are all broadcast from the VMworld home page, so it’s really the same schedule playing three times each day, which means you can watch in the evening or early morning if you want.)
- Americas: 9:00 AM PDT / 12:00 PM EDT, October 5 and 6, 2021
- Asia Pacific: 10:00 AM SGT, October 6 and 7, 2021

This is the main keynote, where we’ll hear from Raghu Raghuram in his first keynote as CEO, and Sumit Dhawan, in his first keynote as president. This covers our company-wide strategy, which includes Anywhere Workspace and EUC.
Anywhere Workspace Solution Keynote: The Future of Hybrid Work Made Possible Today [VI3130] 25 minutes | AMER: 11:00 AM PDT / 2:00 PM EDT, October 5 | APAC: 12:00 PM SGT, October 6 | EMEA: 12:00 PM CEST, October 6
After the general session, there are three 25-minute cross-solution keynotes in a row, for Cloud, Apps and Anywhere Workspace. The Anywhere Workspace keynote will be led by Shankar Iyer, SVP and GM of EUC.
Remember, Anywhere Workspace is our name for the solution that brings together Workspace ONE, VMware SASE and Carbon Black. You can think of this as similar to the way we brought together UEM and VDI into Workspace ONE; now we’re adding even more cross-solution integrations to help customers with the needs of remote work. We announced this back in April, so to learn more, head to the Anywhere Workspace Solutions page, our Anywhere Workspace announcement blog post or our big Anywhere Workspace Event from earlier from May.

In this session, EUC CTO Shawn Bass will dive into announcements for Workspace ONE, covering employee experience, zero-trust security, unified endpoint management and more. At this point, the live player at the VMworld website will split out into eight different channels, so just select the EUC / Anywhere Workspace channel. We’ll have a team standing by to answer questions with our live Q&A chat function.
