#VMworld Europe 2018 Barcelona Party List

VMworld Europe 2018 Barcelona List of Parties and Events

Party Time 

VMworld Europe 2018 is quickly approaching, taking place November 5-8, 2018 in Barcelona.  And one of the great things about VMworld is the networking and party opportunities from VMware and the show sponsors.

VMworld attendees have grown accustomed to having a great time after the sessions have ended with various get togethers and parties.  So far, things are moving pretty slowly on that front, as vendors haven't announced their events yet.  But, when they do, we'll make sure to capture them here and share them with you.

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, when you find out about the event, 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.
