VMworld US 2018 – Parties, Gatherings, Events and more

Attending VMworld is not only attending an IT conference it is also a big networking event where you can talk to vendors, tweeps or bloggers. What will be better for socialising than parties and gatherings at VMworld. I created a small list of parties, gathering and events going on at VMworld 2018 US. Normally I’m just doing the EMEA list. But this year I will do both because I will attend the US conference. VMworld full conference or guest pass is required for some parties and for others you need to register because space is limited.

If you are a vendor or somebody arranging a party or gathering at VMworld US please contact me on Twitter (@Fred_vBrain) or by e-mail (fred (at) vbrain (dot) info) so I can add your party/gathering/event to the list.
