It’s been a couple of years now, but the vDestination VMworld Trip Giveaway is back! I’m pleased to have put together a free trip to VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas. Yes, you read it right, a free trip to VMworld 2017! Have you been to VMworld before? Is this your first time? Either way, if you want to go again or for the first time, this is your shot at making the virtualization mecca for free! I couldn’t have done any of this without the help of my sponsors, Veeam and Infinio. It speaks volumes about their dedication to the virtualization community and willingness to pitch in where they can. A big thanks goes out to Veeam and Infinio, seriously… thank you. Here’s the details…
VMware’s annual conference is held in Las Vegas this year at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort. If you have never been to VMworld, it’s time you went and experienced the biggest virtualization conference in the world. My good friends at Veeam and Infinio have generously offered to sponsor the trip to VMworld this year, and for that I am very grateful. This contest is open to anyone in the United States wishing to attend VMworld 2017 but can’t get there on their own. If you win the trip, you will receive:
- One (1) full VMworld 2017 Conference Pass (Courtesy of my friends at Veeam) and …
- Up to $500 towards your air fare (Courtesy of Infinio)
The only thing you’ll have to cover is the hotel, which I know can be pricey, which is why I’m still trying to get another sponsor involved to help cover the cost of lodging, consider this an open call to the virtualization community to help find a sponsor to pitch in!
How to Enter
First, read this post… then leave a comment on the post. In your comment, you must convey a compelling reason why you should win the contest and how you would pay it forward. You don’t need to fund someone else’s trip in the future, but find a way you plan to give back to the community in the near future. That’s all, it doesn’t need to be a long response, no preference will be given to the entry that reads like a novel.
How to Win
In order to be chosen as the winner of this contest, you have to have the best and most compelling entry. A panel of super star judges will be assembled to select the winner out of the top 5 entries we have agreed upon. The contest opens today, August 1st and will close at 5pm Eastern on Monday August 7th. Only one (1) entry per person please and again, try not to be extra wordy. Include your twitter handle if you have one. The winner will be announced on Wednesday August 9th in a blog post here at vDestination.com. All that is required of you is to write a blog post after returning from VMworld, describing your experience and how you plan on paying it forward.
