This Year thanks to the company I work for I was able to attend VMworld 2014 in Barcelona. I arrived to Barcelona Yesterday with my colleague and I was welcomed by gorgeous weather (+25 Celsius) and really nice hotel Hotel Expo Barcelona.

I registered Today and i received a lot off items:

  • Backpack
  • Badge
  • Refer a friend – 25 Euro gift card
  • A lot of flyers from vendors

Here are some pictures from airport and Fira Barcelona Gran Via where VMworld will take place.

My expectations from VMworld 2014

Besides sessions I will focus on speaking with vendors about latest trends in IT, I will definitely meet vExperts and VCDX. I will skip Hands on Labs because later on all of them will be available online and this is waste of valuable time.

Besides that I will go to three different parties.

  • Monday 13.10.2014 – PernixData Party
  • Tuesday 14.10.2014 – Veeam Party
  • Wednesday 15.10.2014 – VMworld Party
