One thing you should definitely make time for at VMworld is the VMware Design Studio. I have worked closely with the vRealize Operations PM & UX teams over the past year providing customer feedback, and they have extended the following invite to VMworld attendees:
In the VMware Design Studio, we will show a few key product directions and design prototypes. This is a unique opportunity to get your voice heard and interact in a small group or 1:1 session with the product teams.
As a token of our appreciation, you will receive unique VMware Design Partner swag upon completion of a session!
