VMblog:  How has exhibiting at VMworld helped your company's bottom line?

VMblog:  What do you hope to come away with from exhibiting at VMworld?

ManageEngine:  Our main goal is to spread the news about our portfolio of solutions to as many attendees as possible and gather feedback from them so that we can build even better products.

VMblog:  Do you have any tips for first time attendees of VMworld that you'd like to share?

ManageEngine:  Take your time! The best interactions at these shows come from taking time to learn about all the solutions available and have authentic discussions. And don't forget to take your vitamins and get plenty of rest!

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

ManageEngine:  We like to appreciate those attendees who come by for demos and will have long sleeved shirts we're giving away, along with some fun stickers and even USB drives.
