Next Sunday, I’m headed back to Las Vegas (for my fifth time this year!) for another enterprise IT event. But this is a special event: VMworld always includes an amazing group of attendees and companies! And for the first time, I’m participating in the event, presenting to vExperts on Sunday. I hope I see you there!
My VMworld Schedule
I’ll be arriving in Las Vegas on Sunday morning (here’s hoping Uninental/Continited decides to upgrade me to first class again!) and heading straight to the Hilton to drop off my bags. Then it’s time to head to the Sands Convention Center for lunch and registration.
I’ll spend Sunday afternoon at the vExpert Sunday Event organized by John Troyer. Although this event is only for vExperts, I bet it’ll be well-attended and I’ll see lots of familiar faces!
After dinner Sunday night is VMunderground. Always a highlight of VMworld, VMunderground is a great social event run by some awesome folks, including Tech Field Day delegates, Theron Conrey and Sean Clark. Tickets are required, and I believe they’re all taken. So I hope you got some while they lasted!
I’ve got some open time Monday (hear that, vendors?) but I’m sure that’ll fill up soon. Anyone want to meet up for breakfast or lunch? I’ll definitely be roving the Solutions Exchange from 5:00 to 7:30 with my buddies.
Tuesday kicks off with breakfast with Mark Thiele and others. I’m trying to arrange another visit to SuperNAP, the world’s largest datacenter, right after. Then it’s meeting after meeting with vendors, with trips to the Solutions Exchange mixed in. I’d love to set up a dinner, too. Who’s in?
Wednesday is meeting after meeting, too. And although most folks will be enjoying The Killers Wednesday night, I have to head back home that afternoon. I have to see my family sometimes, you know?
I’d love to meet up with you at VMworld! If you’re a product vendor and would like to brief me on what you’re doing, please try to get it into my open Monday, ok? Or let’s do it over a meal – there are some amazing restaurants in Vegas! And if you’re a fellow geek wanting to meet up, drop me a line too. I’ll be out “gallivanting” (as my mom would say) every evening. Join me!
