Why has VMworld been transformed into VMware Explore?
VMware is a company that thrives on profound reinvention. With a hyper-focus on customer innovation, we’re defining a new market category—with apps and multi-cloud at the center of everything we do. This transformation communicates that we are a strategic leader in multi-cloud, shaping its future, from public to private to edge. To help effectively express that, we need to revolutionize the VMworld experience as the center of the multi-cloud universe—VMware Explore.
What’s new in content?
With a focus on solving the problems faced in this multi-workload, multi-cloud, and multi-workspace IT environment, VMware Explore will show you how to accelerate cloud transformation, build and operate a cloud native platform, secure and empower a hybrid workforce, connect and secure clouds and apps, and expand your horizons.
VMware Explore will remain familiar to previous attendees in many ways but will offer numerous new opportunities for discovery. There will also be more non-VMware-led content and speakers—fresh, distinct voices and points of view—gathered in one place like never before. You’ll hear from community leaders, executives, VMware customers, and VMware partners in keynotes, breakout sessions, small group sessions, gamified sessions, hands-on labs and more.
Who should attend VMware Explore?
Those engaged in enterprise applications, cloud architecture, infrastructure, end users, networking and security will be among their peers at VMware Explore as we’re inviting all to help build the new multi-cloud world.
Will there be a digital component offered?
Yes, we will offer unique on-demand content as well as replays from our in-person events in US and Europe. Access to the VMware Explore Video Library is free of charge but requires a VMware ID to access.
Will my VMworld alumni status carry over to VMware Explore?
Previous VMworld Alumni status will be transitioned into the VMware Rewards Program. Within this program, customers and partners will be recognized with an exclusive digital badge award. Stay engaged to win exclusive prizes as you level up. At VMware Explore, event loyalists will receive access to the Rewards lounge and early access to The Party. Stay tuned for specific details.
What health and safety measures will be in place for VMware Explore in-person events?
VMware is committed to the health and safety of our customers, partners, employees and team members. Visit the regional event website to learn about specific guidelines for each event. Revisions will be made in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as federal, country, state, city, venue and other local requirements.
