The second national UK VMUG User Conference is just around the corner! Registration is here and anyone signed up as a VMUG member is welcome to attend. The agenda is full of community content, as well as sponsor and VMware presentations. The committee (of which I am proud to be part of) is delighted to have Scott Lowe as a guest speaker. Scott will also be available throughout the day for ‘birds of a feather’ discussions.
There have been recent discussions and debates about putting the U back into VMUGs. We all need to remain cognisant that without sponsors the local meetings, as well as these User Conferences, cannot take place. But we, as the committee, also need to ensure the sponsor presentations are relevant to the audience and it is down to the sponsors to ensure their presentations ‘resonate’ with our members. Make them technical, include customer scenarios – better still bring the customer to speak – and never, ever make them salesy. We hope you agree that this year’s conference will definitely have the U-factor, but let us know post November 15th!
