Each year we provide blogger passes to both the VMworld US and the VMworld Europe conferences. The program is simple: if you are a blogger or have a publication then you should apply for a complementary blogger pass to one of the conferences. We provide the pass, you provide the transportation and hotel accommodations. The blogger passes are full conference passes so you will still be able to register for sessions just the same as a regular conference pass difference is these are free of charge.
Since passes are limited, we will only provide one pass per person per year. Meaning you can go to either VMworld US in San Francisco or VMworld Europe in Barcelona. Keep in mind that in the past we have always had more passes to San Francisco then Barcelona and both are limited. U.S. Limit is 50 blogger passes while the Europe conference is limited to 35 blogger passes.
The deadline this year for VMworld US is June 4th at Midnight PDT. Deadline for VMworld Europe is July 17th, which is only a couple of weeks later but an earlier deadline will allow you to have the necessary time to arrange hotel and air travel accommodations. If you want to attend VMworld with a blogger pass, please fill out the form right away so we can allocate passes.
Not everyone will be chosen for a blogger pass since the passes are limited and I’m sure we will see a tremendous response this year. If plans change please email cromero at vmware.com with the cancelation so we can allocate the blogger pass to another person.
This is going to be a great year once again at VMworld!
