Events VMware Horizon

A preview of Horizon sessions at VMware Explore 2022

For many companies, the past two-and-a-half years have been about pivoting to remote and hybrid work, as well as trying to provide a seamless, productive experience to their distributed employees. Because our Horizon virtual desktop and apps solutions were built with these scenarios in mind, VMware didn’t need to change direction. Instead, we’ve been charging ahead with even more ways to connect your teams in the hybrid and multi-cloud world we live in, giving them access to everything they need, while working securely from anywhere. And now you can learn all about our offerings. 

Take a look at the exciting Horizon breakout sessions we have coming up at VMware Explore 2022!
