Do you have a compelling story to share or expert tips and tricks you KNOW will help another IT professional? If so – we want you as a speaker for our VMUG 2024 Virtual & In-Person events and VMUG Collective in 2024! If you have attended our events in the past, you know that content is the cornerstone of the program, and strong industry speakers with a variety of experience make for a must-attend event!
Being a part of the leadership at VMUG events such as UserCons is a great way for VMware product experts, customers, business partners and VMUG community members, to contribute to the conversation with peers and colleagues.
We are actively seeking speaker proposals from VMware Product Experts, Business Partners, Customers, and VMUG community members on content across Anywhere Workspace, App Platform, Cloud & Edge Infrastructure, Cloud Management, Desktop Hypervisor, Professional Development and Security & Networking.
Here are some tips and guidelines to help you understand what we look for:
We are also implementing a new way to submit! Each speaker type should be submitting under their designated submission form – not sure where you fall? Please see the 2 types of submission forms below:
A customer submission is any session presented by a VMware customer, that can advance an attendee’s experience in a variety of ways (technical knowledge, networking skills, professional development, etc.) A customer session is not focused on a product, but rather the user experience with products, and how the user can benefit from various technical skills and expertise. Customer sessions are also a great way to submit Professional Development topics, as those are focused entirely on customer experience.
VMUG will cover travel and expenses for all customer speakers.
VMware Submissions are an opportunity to highlight VMware products and technology, provide expertise to members on how to best utilize these services, discuss any upgrades or new products, and share knowledge with members on VMware developments.
For VMware submitters: Please be sure to include your business unit & group on your submission form and please only submit sessions for cities you are confident you are able to attend or will have a resource available in your place.
