VMworld 2017: Virtustream Cheat Sheet

in Cloud, Events


Are you heading to Las Vegas to attend VMworld 2017 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center? Want to keep up with the Virtustream team while you’re there? We thought you might – so we’ve compiled a handy VMworld cheat sheet that has you covered.

Ongoing happenings at the Virtustream booth (624) throughout the show:  

Schedule a meeting with us

  • We’ll be at the booth and talking with folks on the floor throughout the entire show, but if you’d like to have a more in-depth discussion with our team of experts, request a meeting here

Illustrative whiteboarding sessions

  • Stop by our booth to experience one of our interactive whiteboarding sessions. The Virtustream team and our partners will explain infrastructure pain points while a professional illustrator whiteboards the discussion. Be sure to grab a custom screenprinted t-shirt after the session!
    • Stop by during expo hours from Sunday, August 27 - Wednesday, August 30

We’ve partnered with Cradles to Crayons at VMworld! Here’s how you can help:

  • Cradles to Crayons is helping fight childhood poverty by providing children with essential items they need to thrive at home, at school and at play.
  • When you attend a Virtustream speaking session or visit us at the booth, ask our team for a crayon. Keep collecting crayons and drop them in the designated Virtustream crayon deposit station. Watch it fill up throughout the day! A full crayon deposit station is symbolic of the monetary donation we’ll make to Cradles to Crayons after the event.
  • Share photos of you and your team participating on Twitter, tagging @Virtustream and using the hashtag #CradlestoCrayons and #VirtustreamInAction. 

Engage with us on social

  • Snap a picture at our booth, share a favorite moment from a speaking session, or just say hello on Twitter: @Virtustream or @VirtustreamJobs
