I wanted to publish the dates for VMworld 2011, as last year’s post garned quite a few hits so must have been valuable for some. So, with VMworld 2010 now only a distant memory…
VMworld 2011 dates are: 29th August to 1st September. Location: Las Vegas
Now, VMworld 2008 was centered in The Venetian. The VMware Partner Exchange 2010 was based in Mandalay Bay. EMC World 2011 is going to be in the Venetian. Anyone want to guess which hotel VMworld 2011 will be in?

Well as for location I am guessing same place because the convention center is already booked in 2011 for those dates for EMS EXPO.
Thanks Forbes. Adding to your list, Interop New York 2010 (5 days of virtualization classes + VMware is providing the virtual systems for the InteropNet/event network) is October 18-22 at the Javits Center in NYC. Interop Las Vegas 2011 is the same week as EMC World in Las Vegas – Interop is at Mandalay Bay – and will have 5 straight days of virtualization workshops and breakout sessions. Barb Goldworm from analyst firm FOCUS does the virtualization classes. For anyone in India, Interop Mumbai 2010 takes place Sept 28-30, at the Mumbai Exhibition Centre. Interop Tokyo 2011 is June 8-11.
Great stuff, I actually relied heavily on your Firewall Diagram and your vSphere card when studying for my VCP exam which I passed! Thanks! I also went to VMworld this year and it was my first, I am excited already about VMworld 2011, looking forward to it. I may opt to go to VMworld Europe this year though, as Vegas can get a bit out of control and crazy. Thanks for the long list, haven’t been to Synergy or TechEd, may try to make it out to one of those this year state side.
That’s good news on the VCP. Hopefully I’ll make it to Vegas myself next year. If you do, look me up and we can go for a coffee/beer.
I’m hearing the Venetian for VMworld 2011!
