VMware Explore back to Vegas!

VMware Explore back to Vegas!

Today, VMware announced that Explore 2023 will be held in Las Vegas.

The conference (previously VMworld) was held in 2022 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. 2020 and 2021 were virtual events, and 2019 was also in San Francisco. I did not attend 2018 in Las Vegas, but 2016 & 2017 were also there. 2015 and prior were in SF.

I have attended VMworld/Explore as a customer in 2012, 2015, 2016, & 2017. I attended as VMware Hands On Labs Support Staff in 2019, (2020), & 2022.

Personally, I have enjoyed the events in Las Vegas more than SF. I enjoy the event being in a single hotel/conference center, which leads to better networking opportunities, instead of attendees being spread all over the city. It also seems, anecdotally, that more customers are able to attend in Vegas, with travel/lodging costs being cheaper.

Regardless of where the event is held, it is a MUST ATTEND if you are a IT professional working with VMware or related products in any way. I hope to connect with you at the 2023 event in Vegas!
