The VMware Partner Lounge [Located in VMvillage, Bayside C, L1] opens Sunday at Noon.  It’s the ideal place for you to host a customer meeting, or simply network, relax, refuel, or recharge your devices throughout the week. And, new this year are the partner-only theater sessions, spanning various programmatic topics including a session on Master Services Competencies, a PKS Partner Primer, special Partner Spotlight sessions, multiple VMware Cloud on AWS sessions and more. You do not need to pre-register for any of these sessions. Pro tip: Stop by the lounge on Sunday to see the schedule, or browse sessions online, and add your favorites manually to your calendar so you don’t miss this bonus partner-only content running Monday – Wednesday. Seating will be limited.

Download the VMworld 2018 Mobile App from Google Play (Android) or the App Store (IOS) to find all the latest information, update your schedule in real-time, and network with other attendees.
