#VMworld 2019 US Party List

VMworld US 2019 List of Parties and Events

 

VMworld 2019 is a few weeks away, taking place August 25th to the 29th, 2019 in San Francisco, CA at the Moscone Center.  And once again, VMware and the show sponsors are really bringing the party to VMworld. 

There's so much more to VMworld than just breakout sessions and keynotes.  The social and networking side of the event is just as huge!  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 that 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.
