Viva Las Vegas! How to Maximize The VMworld 2017 Experience


VMworld 2017 Las Vegas; VMware is “Livin’ La Vida Loca”!

VMware is soon headed back to sin city with VMworld US in Las Vegas, Nevada, August 27–31, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center. VMworld 2017 is VMware’s 5-day premier thought leadership and education destination for cloud infrastructure & digital workspace technology professionals from all walks of life–VMware, Citrix, Microsoft RDP, and much more. With an abundance of workshops, speakers, sessions, roundtables, hands-on labs, networking, and activities… not to mention plenty of tempting Las Vegas festivities, we thought we’d get you excited and ready with some pre-VMworld tips… and, tricks!

VMworld 2017 in Vegas; Are You Ready For a Show?

How Should I Prepare? Whether you’re new to VMworld or you're coming back, doing some thinking-ahead is a win-win! Get those travel and lodging plans wrapped up by now, if not already done. Comfort is key with anything from casual to business dress; particularly shoes, as you will have a lot of ground to cover. Try to always drink water–its Nevada and it’s August! Also, don’t forget the Las Vegas Monorails in addition to standard local transportation options.

What’s On The Agenda? Don’t gamble on waiting! VMware has made public on their website that it has over 500 Sessions as part of the VMworld 2017 Tracks & Sub Tracks Agenda. Review and schedule your Tracks before hitting the road: major Session overviews include Modernize The Data Center, Application Transformation, Emerging Technologies And Trends, Integrate Public Schools, Empower The Digital Workspace, Transform Security, and a brand-new track, Leading Digital Transformation, providing guidance for innovation strategy and execution, as well as practical advice to further your own personal development as an IT Leader.

Who Are The Speakers, Anyway? Known as “Showcase Keynotes,” VMworld 2017 Speakers are good to become acquainted with prior to leaving home. These VMware show-stoppers give you first-hand lessons about all of the new VMware innovations and technology that are based on several of their major Track themes and also openly discuss solutions to industry-wide challenges. Pat Gelsinger, Michael Dell, and other top leaders explore the future of digital business and more. Don’t wait until the last-minute to see who’s talking!
