The deadline for the contest is March 31, 2017, and we’ll announce a winner each month. There are FOUR remaining tickets out of FIVE, so you better start writing!
Moreover, your submitted blog post automatically qualifies you to be in the race for the Most Valuable Blogger Award, consisting of a full conference pass and FREE accommodations while at the conference.
How to organize your trip to VeeamON
For those of you who already have decided to attend VeeamON 2017, I will share with you some important details regarding your stay in New Orleans, as well as provide you with all the resources you need to organize your trip. If you haven’t registered yet, I want to remind you that the Super Early Bird access is still available for only $549. Also, don’t forget that VMCE training will start prior to the event, so you will not miss any sessions during VeeamON. Partner VMCE training will be May 14 — 15, 2017 and End-User VMCE and VMCE-ADO training is May 15 — 16, 2017.
VeeamON 2017 is going to be held at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, located in downtown New Orleans. You can book your hotel here. VMCE training is being held at the New Orleans Sheraton, so if you’re taking the training class, you may want to book your stay there. All of the hotels are within walking distance to the conference venue, and there will also be shuttles running between all of the hotels and the venue throughout the conference.
If you’re wondering how to dress for the event, the conference attire is business casual and the weather in New Orleans is usually pleasant in May with an average temperature of 24°C (75°F).
Finally, there are many things to do in New Orleans and, while our agenda will keep attendees busy, I hope you’ll be lucky enough to find some free time and explore the city. You can find more information about the local attractions on the Visitors Bureau website and here are some fun facts about New Orleans. Enjoy!
