For the techs
Looking to become a VMCE? Want discounted training? Veeam® is offering the usual VMCE and VMCA classes before the official start of the conference, which is a great way to save some money (disclaimer, we are not responsible for the loss of said money in the casino) and experience VeeamON at the same time.
Tech town is where some of the smartest people hang out. With hands-on labs, a networking lounge, and LabWarz, Tech Town is your sales-free zone to experience Veeam.
Care to test your knowledge? LabWarz is the industry’s only real-time competition for engineers to test their skills against others in a Veeam scenario obstacle course. Participants earn points for correctness and speed, and the best in-person competitor will win $10,000!
