VMworld US has just been wrapped up and it is time to start looking at VMworld Europe already. I just checked the schedule builder and it looks that our session is scheduled on
Thursday at 14:00 Wednesday at 15:00. Yes I would have definitely preferred a different time slot as well, but it is what it is and we will do our best to make the most out of it. Those who want to attend our session keep in mind it is a Q&A and our session can only be a success if you participate, please think about what you would like to ask and we will do our best to answer it. We will bring a couple of books again to give away during our session to those with the best questions.
There are a couple of sessions I want to plug as they were really successful during VMworld US and are worth attending in my opinion! Now mind most of these are not beginner sessions!

Yes I know… a lot of great sessions and I probably missed out on a few. Considering my session is scheduled on Thursday I am hoping to attend some of these and possible live blog them. The “regular” show runs from Tuesday morning until Thursday 16:00. The Monday before is Partnerday / TAMday / Education-Instructor Day. So if you are a partner, TAM customer or a VMware certified instructor make you sure you sign up for these! Another thing I wanted to point out are the keynote sessions:
Tuesday – 15.30 – 17.00
Wednesday – 09.00 – 10.00
Thursday – 09.00 – 10.30
I’ve been told that Steve Herrod will be speaking on Tuesday this year… be prepared for some cool demos!
** update: time slot changed for our session **

Heino Skov says
Looking forward to see you in Copenhagen.
Great post 🙂
See you in Copenhagen Heino!
Joe Martin says
Where is the quiz show? That was great for the U.S. show. I was kind of hoping that would become a regular session for future shows. Let the team that won defend it the following year.
Unfortunately it is not scheduled for EMEA… Hopefully we will be able to get is scheduled for both the US and EMEA next year.
with all these great technical sessions I hope there will be enough time for the labs…
See you in Copenhagen,
Jason Boche says
VMworld Europe will be a great show but I do wish it was 4 days in length as it is now in the US. 3 days is not enough.
Jonas Mellquist says
Hi Duncan and others – do you know how the seats for the Keynotes are distributed?
Do I need to sign up for any of the keynote sessions in any way.. Or is it a matter of getting there in time to get a seat?
Does anyone know the expected attendance for VMworld Europe this year? Maybe with some info about last year too 🙂
