Bloggers & vExperts at VMworld

IMG_0123
 As Day #2 starts here at VMworld 2010, if you are a blogger or vExpert, drop by the Social Media & Bloggers Lounge. Along with saying hi, you can get your blogger and vExpert buttons. 

The blogger buttons, aside from letting people know that you are a VIP and should get free iPads, will also give you access to the media briefing activities that are going on at the event. (These are in the South Moscone East Mezzanine - follow the signs to the press area.) You can also get access to the Press Working Room and Press Wifi (ask me for details on these).

The orange vExpert button with the cloudy brain is also available. The blue button for vExperts will get you into our event Weds 5:30pm. Pick those up by giving your name to Registration Customer Service in North Moscone. Ask for the CTO Reception Invitation. (Sorry, vExperts only and strictly one per customer!)
