Partners that purchase the VMworld 2018 full conference pass, will have access to tailored business- and sales-focused content and sessions through the Partner Forum @ VMworld at no additional charge.
The Partner Forum begins Sunday, August 26.
At the Partner General Session, Jenni Flinders, WW Channel Chief will share insights into VMware’s strategy and vision and highlight the cloud and services opportunity with VMware.
In addition there will be partner sales breakout sessions (offered on Sunday from 2-4:00 PM and Thursday morning) along with 20+ theater sessions offered exclusively at the VMware Partner Forum Lounge (Monday through Wednesday).
And lastly, while the VMware Partner Forum Lounge is the place to catch a theater session, it’s also still the place for you to host a customer meeting, grab a beverage/snack, or simply relax and recharge.

Clarification of Proposal Plan and Single Form Prior Approval Form:
It was initially communicated that effective May 7, 2018, the proposal plan format will be eliminated and one standard Prior Approval (PA) form will be used for all programs and funds. However, final system configurations were made prior to the launch, and after initial communications, to mitigate impacts to PA and claims in flight. This means that:
- For Q1 FY19 Funds (Feb. 3 – May 4, 2018), a Proposal Plan will still be required to submit and create a PA until Fund Expiration
- For Q2 FY19 (May 5 – Aug 3, 2018) Funds, and going forward, the Single Form PA will be allowed and the Proposal Plan will no longer be required.
Joint Business Planning (JBP):
Earlier in the week it was determined that a defect in PA approval logic related to JBP requirements is preventing some partners from being able to submit PAs. For partners with a JBP that is Active and Approved, the issue has been resolved and PAs can now be submitted to begin the approval process.
