VMworld 2016 Parties

VMworld 2016 is a few weeks away!  The party comes back to fabulous Las Vegas this year, which should shake things up compared to San Francisco.  Read our VMworld 2016 Survival Guide to learn more about how to prepare for the event.

In addition to all the great education and networking that will take place at VMworld, attendees have also become accustomed to having fun as well.  So far, things are shaping up nicely on that front.  While the number of parties as of yet don't seem to equal those of the last couple of years, there are still plenty of opportunities to have a good time!  And the list will hopefully continue to grow. So stay tuned and keep watch!

NOTE: Most events require you to take some signup action.  Yes, even the free events.  And watch out, because not all events are free.  

Time is of the essence.  If you're looking for a party, sign up as soon as you can, because they do have limits to the number of people.  So, first come, first served.

If I'm missing an event, drop me an email or send me a Tweet (@vmblog) and I'll get it added.  Or leave a comment below.
