Spousetivities at VMworld 201421 July 2014 · Filed in News
Long-time readers know that since VMworld 2008 in Las Vegas, my wife Crystal has been organizing spouse activities—aka “Spousetivities”–for spouses, partners, family members, and friends traveling with VMworld conference attendees. This is a true labor of love for Crystal; she works tirelessly to gather sponsors, organize activities, and handle the logistics for the events. Although registration is opening a bit later than usual this year (Crystal’s been sick and in the hospital recently), registration for Spousetivities at VMworld 2014 in San Francisco is now open.
Here’s a quick peek at some of the activities she’s organized:
The annual “Get to Know You” breakfast, where Spousetivities participants get to meet the other folks they’ll be hanging out with for the week, as well as possibly win some great prizes
Mission Street food tour
Kayaking on the Russian River
Wine tours (Crystal’s still sorting details on this one, so tickets aren’t available yet—but check back often!)
Crystal’s also working on adding some additional activities; as details for those become available, she’ll let the community know.
Although this is a labor of love for Crystal, it takes sponsors to make it happen. This year, VMworld’s first and only community-driven and community-focused spouse activities are brought to you by these sponsors:
If you appreciate the fact that your loved ones will have someone to watch out for them and something to do while you’re at the conference this year, please let the Spousetivities sponsors know. Visit their booths, or give them a shout-out on Twitter or Facebook.Tags: VMware · VMworld2014 · Virtualization Previous Post: Fix for Strange Issue Booting KVM Guests Next Post: Giving Back to the Community
