Our 2018 call for papers has closed and our team is hard at work selecting and finalizing the sessions you’ll experience at VMworld. In the meantime, we invite you to explore the tracks and sub-tracks that will provide the framework for your journey. See what’s in store with the topics, trends, and ideas that’ll deepen your knowledge and inspire your thinking.
We have fabulous news for the frugal: Our 2018 VMworld registration rates will be the same as last year, so there’ll be no sticker shock for you when registration opens on May 8. We’re also bringing back our discounts for alumni, students, group sales, and more. As always, our early-bird rates will give you the best prices; our early-bird full conference pass is still priced at $1,795 for VMworld US.
A NEW WAY TO GRAB SWAG
VMworld is known for its fabulous freebies, like those incredible branded backpacks and all the other goodies you can get just by attending the event.
But…what if you don’t need another USB stick, or coffee mug, or T-shirt? Never fear, the solution is here! VMworld 2018 will debut a brand-new way to grab the perfect swag, by letting you earn points during the conference that you can “spend” on a wider range of gifts.
Just checking in at the registration desk will earn you enough points to pick up this year’s backpack, and taking other actions — such as completing a survey or attending a session — will get you more points to use at our special swag store. We’re confident you won’t need to say, “So what, another giveaway!” (you know that’s what “swag” means, right?) this year.
VMWARE CLOUD ON AWS EXPANDS TO EUROPE
As businesses increase their use of cloud computing and utilize multiple cloud providers, they face increased complexity and risk associated with diverse infrastructures, management tools, and processes.
To address these needs, VMware and Amazon Web Services (AWS) teamed up to create VMware Cloud on AWS. Last year, the service launched in two AWS regions in the US – and have just released their third major update, with the service now available in AWS’s London region with additional expansion planned for Europe and Asia this year.
VMWORLD SHOWCASE KEYNOTE HIGHLIGHT
