#VMworld 2018 US Party List

VMworld US 2018 List of Parties

Party Time 

VMworld 2018 is a few weeks away, taking place August 26th-30th, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV at the Mandalay Bay.  And once again, VMware and the show sponsors are really bringing the party to VMworld. 

VMworld is more than just breakout sessions and keynotes.  The social and networking side of the event is just as huge!  And when in Las Vegas, the party scene associated with VMworld takes a back seat to nobody.  VMworld attendees have become accustomed to having a good time after the sessions have ended.  And so far, things are starting to take shape on the front, as the opportunities from various vendors are making their way to reality.   

NOTE: Most events will require you to take some type of signup action in order to attend.  Yes, even if the event is free.  They need to do that in order to take a proper head count or know when to shut things down if the list grows too big.  These things are generally first come, first served.  So if you are interested, I suggest you sign up if you are available before it is too late.

If I'm missing an event, contact me or send me a Tweet (@vmblog) and I'll get it added.
