If it’s an expert led hands-on lab and has security in it…then it’s listed here.

Expert-Led Workshops are presented by the VMware product experts who develop lab content. Workshops require advance sign-up and check-in at least 5 minutes prior to start. Expert-led workshops require advance sign-up through the VMworld Content Catalog. Attendees should check-in at the hands-on labs room 10 to 15 minutes prior to their scheduled workshop.

NOTE: There is no wait-list available for any of the Expert-led Workshops, but there will be a stand-by queue at VMworld for each that is open 30 minutes prior to the session starting.  Only two scheduled workshops per attendee.  

These are some of the most popular labs at VMworld so make sure you get them on your agenda ASAP.
