VMware is taking virtual conferences to the next level with its largest online event of the year, vForum Online.

Why pay hundreds of dollars and waste two days traveling to and from a tech conference when you can chat live with 135 VMware experts from the comfort of your home or office? vForum Online gives you access to 40 technical breakout sessions, 13 Hands-on Labs, and deep dives into new launches and product updates such as VMware Tanzu and vSphere7.

It’s live, it’s free, and it’s available on any device, anywhere. See what these 10 vExperts have to say about their vForum Online experiences and why you should register.

vExperts at vForum Online

 

Ryan Klumph:

“Not only does vForum Online offer industry-leading speakers, breakouts, and hands-on learning, but it has paved the way of how we learn, connect, and socialize for a major digital user conference. I’ve been able to directly interact with Product Managers, Architects, and SMEs on topics that matter to me and my customers, all from the comfort of my home-office. I’m confident that this year will be no less of the highest caliber content and experience.”

 

Andre Carpenter:

“VMware’s vForum has always proven to be a valuable investment of time for me, from the world class experts that deliver the sessions to the exchange of knowledge in the networking sessions. It has also helped me connect with other technologists and VMware partners from the APAC market to form new relationships and business partnerships as well as stay abreast of the latest from VMware’s local leadership team. If you are a senior executive, or a technical specialist, I thoroughly recommend attending. You won’t regret it.”

 

Dale McKay:

“vForum sessions provide some of the most insightful content outside of the Palo Alto campus! Just look at the sessions that are available. Where else can you get such deep, insightful content!?”

 

Christoph Buschbeck:

“vForum is a chance to get in touch with C-Level / decision makers, which is exactly the people we need to talk about when it comes to solution selling. vForum gives you the opportunity to talk to customers, to listen carefully and understand the challenges they have to cover. It’s a good chance to get a different view and to connect yourself with colleagues, partners and customers on another level!”

 

Rolando Kohl:

“You don’t want to miss vForum Online. The more people who register and can attend online, the more people there will be to interact with. Plus, having access to countless materials, labs and chats with VMware experts is a unique experience.”

 

Robert Kloosterhuis

“The power of vForum Online is that you have a half-day of great focus, on a topic area of your choice, with broad opportunities to ask live questions to some of the best subject matter experts in the world. You set your own agenda, from the comfort of your own home, yet can engage with both VMware employees as well as the #vCommunity in a live setting. Being broader than a single session or a single topic makes this event more immersive and promotes cross-topic and cross-discipline discussions that you would only otherwise get with an in-person conference. I look forward to deep diving on the Tanzu product portfolio on May 13th. Contact me there, I would love to talk to you!”

 

Victor Wu:

“I like to attend vForum every year because I can get announcements of VMware products and can learn new best practices. This year, I’m most looking forward to 2 Hands-on Labs: What’s new in vRealize Operation Manager 8 and NSX-T Getting Started. I’m also eager to get an update about vSphere 7.0, vSAN 7.0 and VCF on HCI!”

 

David Marshall

“Treat these vForums like you would a live event: block yourself off from distractions and take in the full experience! There’s more than enough going on to occupy your time and educate yourself on a wide array of topics. I’ve educated myself on different areas that I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to do at VMworld because of how busy the physical event can get. I look forward to hands-on-lab so I can take a test drive of technologies that I can’t schedule at VMworld because of their popularity and limited seating – don’t have that problem virtually!”

 

Al Rasheed

“If you’re looking for reasons to attend, where do I even begin. Here are some factors to consider: Pat’s keynote, you can attend from the comfort of your home, it’s a full half-day event, and you can interact with multiple experts live. If you know someone that may be interested in the sessions but they’re unaware of the event, send them a personalized invite!”

 

Jorge Torres

“Many people, myself included, don’t mind traveling to a conference because of the value we find from face to face interactions, opportunities to network as well as to learn and see the new cool features or ask and discuss specific topics and ideas with experts. BUT let’s face it – the cost, planning and arrangements required to go away to a conference is something I assume anyone could live without, and being able to still obtain the same level of knowledge from the same type of technical sessions, and for FREE, is a chance that should not be wasted in my opinion.”
