VMworld 2017 US – all parties, gatherings, events and activities

It’s VMworld Time!      [last list update: August 22, 2017)

 

From August 27 to 31, Las Vegas is dominated by the vCommunity coming together to learn, hear the latest news from the industry and to network.

And so it is time for my annual list of all gatherings, parties, and events taking place at #VMworld 2017 US.

Please note, that you need to register for some of the events due to limited space. Others are open to all attendees with a full conference pass/guest pass.

Check back to the list regularly – it will fill more and more the closer we get to #VMworld. Last year there were nearly 30 events on the list!
