VMblog: As a VMworld 2016 sponsor, how can people find you this year?
Unitrends: Unitrends will be directly across the aisle from VMware in booth 1459 - you won't be able to miss us. We are a Gold sponsor with a 20x30 booth. There will be over 20 Unitrends employees in attendance this year - engineers, product managers, sales associates, reseller channel managers, and a number of execs.
VMblog: Wow, sounds fantastic! Anything interesting or unique about this year's booth setup? Do you have a theme?
We'll have an exciting game that attendees can play to win top prizes, featuring our favorite IPA from Unitrends customer DogFish Head Brewery during the hall crawl, and a limited edition t-shirt designed by @Stephen_Bliss, Senior Artist with Rockstar Games who established the highly recognizable style of Grand Theft Auto. Attendees will want to stop by early in the show to pick up - we are pretty confident that we won't have any left near the end of the show. (http://www.stephenbliss.com/rockstar-games/)
