Why should you attend?
By the end of the symposium, you will have:
A closer alignment to VMware as an organisation
Up-to-date knowledge of our products and processes
The ability to communicate VMware technical and business benefits to customers
More confidence in supporting customers during the sales process
Who should attend?
Attendance at this event is mandatory for all VMware Enterprise Resellers, with at least one VCP representing each organisation. We also welcome our Alliance Partners to attend.
Attendance is free of charge and includes lunch, dinner and refreshments during the course of the symposium. However, delegates will need to pay for their own travel to the venue, overnight accommodation and breakfast costs.
Please keep 7th and 8th September free in your diaries (delegates will need to arrive at the hotel on the evening of 6th September).
