After two years due to COVID-19 pandemic, VMware returns to Europe with its biggest event now called VMware Explore 2022 (previously VMworld) bringing many interesting innovations already anticipated in the US edition.
As for the latest editions, VMware Explore 2022 will take place in Barcelona at the Fira Gran Via, 7 – 10 November 2022.
You can attend the event in person or online. All breakout sessions as well as technical content will be available in the online video library. The access to online content is free of charge but requires a VMware ID.

Hotels are pretty far from the venue and most are located in the city. Bear in mind there are no shuttles between the hotels and the Fira Gran Via.
You can take the Metro to either Fira (L9) station (8-minute walk) or Foc (L10) station (6-minute walk). Anyway public transportation is not so expansive and you can easily travel the city. Also taxi should be affordable.
In previous editions VMware used to offer 10 tickets for metro/bus for free provided at the registration desk. Not sure about this edition.
Casual to business dress is appropriate. I recommend wearing comfortable clothes and shoes since you will walk a lot to reach the different breakout-session rooms. T-shirt, jeans, gym shoes are absolutely fine.
Remember to leave some space in the suitcase to put the gifts given by vendors.
It is strongly recommended to book your sessions in advance to reserve a seat. During the event most breakout sessions will be fully booked.
The list of breakout sessions, hands-on labs, and other sessions are already available in the VMware Explore Content Catalog. Check out topics and speakers, and find the sessions that meet your event goals.
