VMblog:  As a VMworld 2017 sponsor, how can people find you this year?   

ThinPrint:  Our booth number is 1331, just across from VMware. We have a redesigned 400 square foot space that will showcase the announcements and innovations we are focusing on at this year's show.

VMblog:  Is there anything unique about this year's booth setup?  Do you have a theme? 

ThinPrint:  At VMworld 2017 we are expanding some of our proven and renowned technologies to new environments and markets. Printing is still a critical business process that needs to keep pace with digital transformation. Expect to see announcements that will make printing more reliable, empowering to users and simpler to administer than ever.

VMblog:  Can you give readers a few reasons why your product or service is considered unique? 

ThinPrint:  For enterprise printing and print management there's no solution as capable as ThinPrint. More than 25,000 customers with millions of users in more than 126 countries are proof of the value we deliver. Efficiency, manageability, reliability, ease of use and security are results of 18 years of innovation in print management. Building on this success, we have some exciting and new solutions being announced at this year's show, further differentiating our offering and leadership position in the industry.

VMblog:  Why should a VMworld attendee add you to their MUST SEE list?

ThinPrint:  We have two new solutions we are announcing at the show, both being extremely unique in their position in the industry. We can't talk about them quite yet but they'll be worth a stop by booth #1331. We've added a whole extra kiosk to have enough space to show the new ideas.

VMblog:  Can you give VMblog readers a sneak peek as to what you will be showing off at your booth this year?

ThinPrint:  We have two new solutions we are announcing at the show, both being extremely unique in their position in the industry.  One "sneak peek" - without giving too much away - is that ThinPrint is changing how you will manage your print environment.

VMblog:  How does your company and product fit within the VMware ecosystem?

ThinPrint:  ThinPrint has a long-standing arrangement with VMware to deliver both the built-in print technology for many of the VMware products like Horizon View, as well as add-on solutions for features, such as high availability and release/follow-me printing.

Additionally, ThinPrint technology is great for any environment to consolidate print servers, increase security, ensure high availability and more. All the things that the VMworld attendees work on every day.

VMblog:  What are you looking forward to most at VMworld this year?

ThinPrint:  The opportunity to connect with the attendees, the opportunity to have great conversations and to show the audience what we've been working on for them.

VMblog:  How many times have you sponsored VMworld?  And what keeps you coming back?

ThinPrint:  We've been at VMworld since very early on. It's a great audience that values innovation and we enjoy working with them to create technology that is most valuable to their organizations.

VMblog:  Attendees always enjoy a good trade show tchotchke.  Are you guys giving away anything special or interesting this year?

ThinPrint:  Yes! We have a couple of different contests and giveaways. There's a 360-degree camera, a bike and VR glasses.

VMblog:  Does your company have any speaking sessions during the show?  If so, can you give us the who, what, when and where?

ThinPrint:  The impact of printing on end-to-end security: Wednesday, August 30th, 2:20pm in Theatre A in the Solutions Exchange


VMblog spoke with ThinPrint at Citrix Synergy.  You don't want to miss speaking to them at VMworld.  And I will definitely be checking out this 360-degree camera!  I can already tell you, the bike is very cool!
