VMware Explore Hands-on Labs

Hands-on Labs Welcomes You Back to Explore Europe

The Hands-on Labs is returning to Explore Europe this November! The event name may have changed (so long, VMworld), but the Hands-on Labs is still bringing the awesome…

Expert-led Workshops

We have 50 opportunities for you to learn about VMware solutions from the experts who create the labs, our Expert-led Workshops are small sessions (25 seats each) and 90 minutes jam-packed with product information and hands-on experience in a live environment.

This year, to truly highlight your multi-cloud journey, three of our cloud partners will be presenting workshops on their live infrastructure; check out the Azure (Learn how to integrate Azure VMware Solution with Native Azure Services), AWS (VMware Cloud on AWS Expert-led Workshop) and for the first time ever, Google (Lift and Transform VMW Workloads faster with Google Cloud VMware Engine) Expert-led Workshops in the Hands-on Labs area.

Check out all 50 workshops in the VMware Explore Content Catalog, and sign up for your favorites!

Self-paced Labs

Of course, if you prefer to get hands-on at your own pace, we will be offering 80+ titles in our Self-paced Labs area, this year we have configured the room to give you more access to the subject matter experts you come to see. The Self-paced Labs area is staffed with the experts who write the labs and conduct the Expert-led Workshops to answer your questions, tell you about their favorite features, or deep dive into a solution with you.

Tours, Command Center and a Scavenger Hunt

The Hands-on Labs Tours are an opportunity to meet the lab creators and engineering teams that work to build the lab experiences. This journey behind-the-scenes takes about 30-45 minutes, covers all of the elements in the room and covers business and technical topics. The final destination on the tour will bring you to our world famous Command Center wall where you can see how we monitor the Hands-on Labs room in real time, using VMware products. If you want to see what happens behind the curtains, stop by the Tours Check-in Desk at one of the tour times below.
