VMworld Lines, Long Lines and Damn Long Lines

vmworld 2010 logoI’ve heard some grumbling about the long lines popping up at VMworld with folks blaming the new first-come format for admission into the various sessions. A few folks have asked me my take on it – here’s what I’ve got:

– Yes, the lines are long but they seem to move fast. Whether that’s because people are bailing out or because the staff here is efficiently moving people into session rooms as they open up I don’t know. I suspect a bit of both.
– I anticipate lines getting shorter over the next few days as the Solutions Exchange opens up a ton of space and activities for VMworld participants.
– As people get a feel for the flow of the event, things will start moving along better. Rather than jam-packing as many sessions into their schedule, people will start to balance vendor time on the Solution Exchange floor, Hands-On Labs, and other activities.

What has your experience been so far? Any suggestions for improving the VMworld experience? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments!

  3. Joshua,

    The lines looked pretty short from 2500 miles away in the DC area, those that complained about it did not take stock in the fact that they were able to actually go! Wahhh I say. Having been lucky enough to go from 2006 to 2009 I would have been glad to stand in those lines in 2010.

    Have a great day!

    PS: I never did an official t-shirt count but my wife hates them too… LOL
