Thanks to our fantastic sponsors–EMC, Train Signal, and HyTrust–Spousetivities 2010 at VMworld US was an amazing success! I gave away every business card I had and people just started writing down the website. So many people asked about the vWife t-shirts and even offered to buy them from me. I told them to bring their spouse to the next event and they were sure to get one. It was wonderful to meet so many great people, both attendees of the conference and Spousetivities attendees. Thank you to everyone for the support. The next event is VMworld EMEA in Copenhagen, Denmark.
In case you are just now hearing about these fantastic events, let me provide a summary of our activities this past week in San Francisco. There were organized tours to Napa, Sausalito, and Golden Gate Park. We had exclusive lunches with amazing views at Horizons Restaurant in Sausalito. We enjoyed an exquisite lunch in the gardens at V. Sattui Winery in Napa. There were also organized photographic tours of San Francisco. We enjoyed breath taking views from Twin Peaks, went down to the water at the Golden Gate Bridge, and saw sites like Lombard Street, the Painted Ladies, and Treasure Island. There were also groups that got together and did walking tours through China Town, Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, and of course, Alcatraz!
Next year, VMworld will be held in Las Vegas. While some love the lights and action, others dread the thought of going there. Rest assured, there will be something for everyone! We will do tours of the city, visit chocolate factories, spend time at Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon, and even Lake Mead. Preparations are already underway! I am excited about some new ideas I have for next year, too.
For some of us, it will be four years of enjoying Spousetivities, for others, it will be your first time joining in the fun. Either way, you are sure to meet some great people and have a wonderful time. Stay tuned for Spousetivities information for VMworld 2011 as well as other upcoming conferences.
