VMware Cloud on AWS Giveaways at VMworld US

Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure and management is certainly going to be top of mind for many of our customers attending this year. There are a large number of resources this year that customers will be able to take advantage of at VMworld including deep technical breakouts, Instructor Led Workshops, Customer Panels, Short Lightning Talks, Meet the Experts, Hand-On-Labs and many opportunities to have 1:1 meetings with both VMware Cloud on AWS Product Managers and Engineers during the conference. For a complete list of VMware Cloud on AWS specific sessions, please check out the link here.

In addition to all the networking and knowledge brain dump, it would not be VMworld without some cool giveaways, right!? Do not worry, the VMware Cloud on AWS team has you covered, and we think these will be quite popular for attendees this year.


Without further ado, we have custom designed several limited edition #VMWCloudLego Minifigures for VMworld US and some of you may have already caught an early glimpse if you follow the @vmwarecloudaws Twitter account. If you do not already follow this account, give it a follow as future giveaways will be shared through that account ☺

Special Grand Prize

While designing the #VMWCloudLego minifigures, we thought that these minifigures would look even better with a companion case to store them in. So why not!? We worked our magic and had a special custom #VMWonAWS Lego case made. Due to the extreme limited quantity, we really had to call in some favors to even be able to give some of these away at VMworld.

We will be giving away 5 of these cases and not just the case but it will also include all four #VMWCloudLego minifigures! To qualify, the first five individuals who have attended the most amount #VMWonAWS sessions, breakouts, etc. at the end of the week (Thursday) will win one of these cases.

To claim your prize, visit the Cloud City Booth on Thurs from 1-3pm to submit your final tally of #VMWonAWS sessions. Best of luck to those taking on this amazing challenge!

 Note: VMware Employees do not qualify for the grand prize giveaway

Finally, you may have noticed there are quite a few more slots within the case, you can use this for your own Lego collection or who knows, maybe other #VMWCloudLego minifigures will be introduced in future 😉 Be sure to follow the @vmwarecloudaws Twitter account for all the latest news.

Can not wait to see everyone at VMworld!
