2011 Activites

Hello again! It has been a while since I have posted any new content. With a new set of conferences for 2011 getting closer, new posts will be coming more rapidly, so stay tuned! For those of you new to Spousetivities, please see my about page for a little background. For those of you who have had the pleasure of participating, this year will not let you down.

First, I’d like to provide a quick update on the conferences I’ll be covering. This year I am actively planning activities for EMC World, VMworld US, and VMworld EMEA. Both EMC World and VMworld US will be held in Las Vegas, NV; VMworld EMEA will be back in Copenhagen.

For these conferences, I’m currently looking into a wide range of activities. Included in these are some traditional events as well as some that I think are over the top! I am also trying to organize very family friendly activities so that those of you attending either of the US conferences and interested in bringing your children will have options outside of the main Las Vegas area. I am hoping to get some feedback from everyone on activities and events you’d like to see this year and in years to come. I’ve been asked about having informational sessions, cooking classes, spa days, horseback riding, and of course, shopping! I am even trying to get together a “Men’s Day” at Lake Mead for the VMworld US event. After all, it’s not just ladies that are spouses and significant others. More and more women are becoming leaders in the IT industry and I want to make sure they feel like they can bring their spouses and partners to join in the fun.

I would like to thank EMC for already agreeing to sponsor activities once again. EMC is a sponsor of EMC World, VMworld US, and VMworld EMEA. I’d like to thank EMC for helping make these events possible. I am looking forward to adding more names to our list of sponsors soon. If you are a company that would like to be a part of this, please contact me right away. Last year’s sponsors got some great attention through Spousetivites!

As I continue to obtain sponsors and organize activities, I will post updates and information here. In the meantime, please post any ideas, suggestions, or feedback on activities you’d like to see at this year’s conferences in the comments.

  1. Thank you! I was involved with the spouse activities a few years ago at VMWorld in Orlando and really was disappointed in Orlando & Boston that EMC World didn’t have a similar package for spouses. My husband will again be attending EMC World this year and I would welcome activities with other spouses during the days. :-)


  2. I’m very glad you are interested in Spousetivities. I was wondering what activities you participated in when in Orlando because VMworld has not been in Orlando and my activities have only been offered in Las Vegas in 2008 and San Francisco 2009 & 2010.

    I look forward to meeting you this year!
