In March it was announced that VMworld is now VMware Explore and that it will take place in San Francisco, CA/USA – August 29 – September 1, 2022, – and in Barcelona/ES – November 7 – 10, 2022, plus additional VMware Explore events – hosted in Brazil, China, Japan, and Singapore in October and November this year.

A general FAQ to VMware Explore has been published in April.

The content catalog for VMware Explore US has gone live end of June. The content catalogue for VMware Explore Europe will be available ahead of November.

As a VMware Technical Account Manager (TAM), I am always interested in seeing fellow TAMs from any GEO (AMER, EMEA, APJ) presenting at events like VMware Explore.
