Qualified press and industry analyst professionals who have reported on and analyzed industry news and dynamics on a regular basis may apply for a complimentary press pass to VMworld 2016. The primary qualification for a press pass is proof of regular writing, reporting and publishing of relevant industry articles that are not confidential or solicited by an exhibiting company.
Applicants may be asked to provide samples of past work to be approved for a pass. Private consultants who are paid by an individual company are not eligible for a press pass and should request an attendee pass from the sponsoring company.
A press pass provides free access to VMworld 2016 attendee sessions as well as participation in the VMware press program including press conferences, media interviews with VMware representatives, and networking opportunities.
We reserve the right to refuse press and analyst badges, without cause, during pre-registration as well as on-site registration. Please be advised that due to high demand, badges are limited in number.
