This will be my second time in Vegas for VMworld and I am looking forward to returning this year. In the past I have felt as though VMware could do better with food. In most recent years food has progressed to all carb breakfasts, boxed lunches and dinners. You can review some of my prior blog posts to review for yourself.
Some of the customer led breakout sessions tend to not be very technical so beware that if you sign-up for a customer led talk that it may just be a very boring high level talk that won't help you understand the product.
Don't forget to sign-up for hands-on labs but note that these labs are available to you outside of VMworld and you can go through them at the leisure of your own home. I recently hosted an NSX hands-on labs utilizing the free online labs for my VMUG group.
Where to stay?
The event will be held at the prestigious Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center located here:
3950 S Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89119
Other than staying at the event hotel you may want to stay in walking distance as the temperature in August can be hot. If you stay somewhere on the strip you can always take advantage of UBER. The next closest hotel appears to be the Luxor or the Delano with availability. I stayed at the Luxor last year and I did not enjoy the hotel. It is very dark and musty. I would suggest choosing another hotel other from the list below.
