VMware Explore US 2023 – Social Events

VMware Explore US 2023 is only a couple months away, taking place August 21st to August 24th in Las Vegas. This time it is going to be hosted in the Venetian, which is not the norm (usually Mandalay Bay is the default choice). There are a few events that end up making it to the list every year, and then there are others that vendors come up with for the ocassion. Think of happy hours, dinners, breakfasts, sports, vBeers, and much more! As the event gets closer, I will continue adding events that are publicly announced for customers.

As of now, the only confirmed event I have seen are the following:
