Awesome VMUG presence at VMworld and Me

I am really excited to attend VMworld this year.  There is so much going on.   As a VCDX, vExpert and VMUG Leader my schedule is already packed.   I just wish I had two weeks to attend sessions… there are too many sessions to attend.   I wanted to take a minute to provide the details on some of the VMUG things going on during the week:


VMUG Lounge

VMUG will not have a booth at the solutions exchange this year.  Instead they will have an area at Moscone West 2nd floor that will be open the following hours:

  • Monday 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM, 12-6pm
  • Tuesday 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM
  • Wednesday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Thursday 10:30 AM – 2:30 PM

It will have a lot of things to do including:

  • Wii game consoles
  • Snacks
  • A Photo Booth
  • Ask the Experts booth
  • Charging station
  • Presentation area with meetings by VMUG CEO
  • Smoothly bar Monday and Tuesday 2:30 Pm – 4:30 PM
  • Pre-party Wednesday 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

T-Shirts will be available for all VMUG Members… it’s free to sign up.

They will also be providing a number of giveaways including:

  • VMUG Plinko chips (handed out randomly and redeemed for prizes)
  • VMware ICM OnDemand training
  • USB Fans
  • VMUG Backpack Patches
  • Tons of other giveaways

Advantage Memberships:

They are discounting the advantage membership to $180 for on sight sign up’s and giving random prizes to people who sign up and a free VMware press ebook. Advantage is still the best way to get VMware licenses.  Prizes include:

  • Backstage passes for VMworld band
  • Six Synology Diskstations
  • $1,000 gift card to Newegg


VMUG will also be hosting a ton of events announced during the conference.  You can follow them via social media at:

VMUG stuff alone is a ton of things and every vendor is going nuts just like VMUG.   I look forward to meeting all of your out there… if anyone is looking to talk or meet up with me reach out via twitter I’ll try to keep up.  I still have some free time on Thursday 🙂
