VMworld US 2016 is less than a week away. The Hands-on Labs team cannot wait to connect with everyone in Las Vegas as we unveil our new 2017 content catalog. VMworld attendees are the first to experience the labs that are deployed online throughout the following calendar year. This year is no exception, with over 70 lab topics covering vSphere tech preview material, integration with VMware partner solutions, updated NSX content, new Virtual SAN labs, Airwatch, Horizon and vCloud Air. The VMware Hands-on Labs showcase the power of VMware products and solutions in real time. Be sure to visit the Hands-on Labs, Sunday through Thursday, at VMworld US 2016 in Las Vegas.

Early Risers, Early Arrivers

Sunday, August 28th is arrival day for most VMworld attendees. Did you know that the Hands-on Labs will be open for eleven hours on Sunday? That’s right, the doors will open to the HOL room at 7 AM on Sunday morning and the last lab will not be closed out until 6 PM.

Sunday is the perfect day to take your labs as there are very few other scheduled conference activities. You can get the scoop on the latest VMware technology in the HOL and be prepared for all of the exciting keynotes and breakouts to come through the rest of the week. We invite you to join us in the Hands-on Labs room throughout the day on Sunday.
