Beyond VMware-hosted conferences, we look forward to participating in important industry events, meetings and other gatherings. However, given the continued evolving nature of COVID-19, VMware will continue to assess conferences that we are sponsoring or have a booth or other tradeshow presence, and we’ll work with those show organizers and VMware teams to determine next steps.

Stay tuned as we imagine the opportunities of a changing world.
