VMworld 2020 goes digital. Will you be in attendance? If the event were physical, I would have looked forward to visiting with Firemon. So we reached out to them digitally instead.
With the current pandemic, we're seeing a lot of changes taking place in our normal, everyday lives -- both professionally and personally. One of those changes is the end of physical trade show events as we move to socially distance ourselves from one another. While some trade shows simply cancelled or postponed until 2021, others have made the switch to a 100% digital format. VMworld, the world's largest virtualization and cloud computing event hosted every year by VMware, is one of those shows -- enter for the first time ever, VMworld 2020 Digital.
While a physical VMworld event would normally have north of 150+ sponsors, a digital VMworld event won't be able to effectively support that number of sponsors.
