Next stop – Barcelona! VMworld 2014 starts in less than a month

Time goes by very fast and in less than a month VMworld 2014 Europe will take place for the third time in a row in Barcelona. The conference theme this year is “No Limits” – and the announcements of the US Version this August give an idea what you can expect:

  • vCloud Suite 5.8
  • VMware NSX 6.1
  • VMware vRealize Suite
  • vSphere 6.0 beta
  • Virtual Volumes & Virtual SAN 2.0 beta
  • VMware vRealize Suite

If this is your first VMworld in Barcelona you might be interested in the blogpost “Transportation at VMworld Barcelona 2014“. There you can find some information about public transportation to the venue and shuttleservices from and to the airport.

If you have not done it yet, you better hurry and start building your schedule. Seats are limited and popular sessions are filling fast! If you have not scheduled a session you have to wait if there are any seats left…

Before you start your trip to the show, take a look in your appstore and download the VMworld 2014 Mobile App to your smartphone. The App for VMworld Europe will soon be available and is a great help to organize your days at the conference. The app enables you to access eg:

  • Social Media stream & resources
  • What’s Happening & Daily Highlights
  • Sessions & Labs info (w/hashtags to share on Twitter)
  • Sponsors/Exhibitors directory & info
  • Agenda-at-a-Glance
  • Session & Conference Surveys
  • Local info for San Francisco
  • VMUG information
  • Partner Day Agenda
  • VMworld Game – task/activity game

Last but not least do not forget to plan your evenings/nights 🙂 Many parties take place and offer you a great possibility for networking and meeting people you only know from the web/or see only once a year.

The first networking opportunity is (hopefully) the vRockstars Party at Sunday evening. Another party you should definitely not miss is the Veeam Party (Tuesday evening) and of course the VMworld Party at Wednesday evening.

As you need an invitation to attend most of the vendor partys, do not forget to visit their booths at Solutions Exchange!
