Stay up-to-the-minute with the VMworld app. Manage your schedule, network with attendees, and view the conference map. It’s all at your fingertips on iOS and on Android. 

 

 

 

 2. Expedite your badge pick up

Picking up your badge is inevitable, but waiting in a longer line than necessary is optional. Save yourself some time in the queue and get your Print Badge QR from the VMworld app. You’ll be able to go directly to registration located in the Hall 6 main entrance. Just be sure to have a government-issued ID handy. Want your photo on your badge, too? Upload your profile photo to your My VMworld Dashboard prior to arrival.  

 

 

 

3. Plan your agenda
