Join ControlUp at VMware Explore 2022!

Who’s headed to VMworld (I mean, VMware Explore—I’m still not used to that name change) 2022!? ControlUp will be there, and we’re thrilled to be a Platinum sponsor. You’ll find us, quite literally, in the center of the action (Booth 1302). I’ve been feeling a whole Stranger Things vibe lately, so I’m thinking think you’ll find our booth to be kinda like that mullet you used to rock in the ‘80s, just in reverse. This time, it’ll be party in the front, business in the back.  


“Wait—LOL—what? What does that even MEAN, Michelle?”

Stick with me here. Up front is where all the fun is! 

Of course, we’ll have great swag (and who doesn’t love that?) We’ll also have the IT Wheel of Excuses, which you can spin to win cool prizes. 



SIDE NOTE: Didn’t you know that IT help desk folks just spin a wheel to “solve” your problem? “It’s the network,” “Are there sunspots?” “Did you try restarting it?” (this is my favorite answer from IT, btw). 

Now is your chance to flip the script (you don’t even need PowerShell!) and WIN. The best part is everyone’s a winner! And we promise we won’t give you any bad IT advice. 😊


In the back, it’s all business.

Did you know that ControlUp can help IT deliver a great digital employee experience and help remote workers stay productive, no matter where they’re working? It’s true! Did you know that our comprehensive DEX management platform can simplify physical endpoint management, give you real-time insights into your VDI and DaaS environment, full visibility into the availability and performance of your SaaS apps, plus help IT understand how employees use video conferencing platforms? IT’S TRUE.

We’d love to show you more of what I mean, so I hope you’ll come by and visit us at Booth 1302 in the South Expo Hall, so you can check out a demo. 


But wait! There’s more! 

We have two sensational sessions you can check out! Yoni Avital—ControlUp Co-Founder and CPO—and Trentent Tye—ControlUp Super-Genius and a Tech Person of Interest™️—will present the “Bad User Experience Smackdown! Easy Horizon Troubleshooting with ControlUp” (we are literally breaking sh*%, you don’t want to miss it) and our Horizon virtuosos will present our Expo Theater session: “Improve Remote Work Experience with Last-Mile Monitoring from ControlUp.”  

We ALSO have three great TechTalks, each hosted by Tom Fenton, vExpert, and VMware Horizon expert. Join him on the VMTN track for:

  • Increase Horizon guest density using MMR [Session ID: VMTN1997US]
  • Monitoring Horizon VDI Clients and Home Networks [Session ID: VMTN2000US]
  • Is your Horizon Desktop Available? [Session ID: VMTN2001US]


After we work hard, we play hard!

We’ll have a great time on the expo floor, for sure, but once the sun goes down? IT IS ON. ControlUp is great at two things: optimizing remote work environments and throwing a GREAT party. So, you definitely don’t want to miss this one. Along with our co-sponsors, IGEL and LG, we’ll be serving up scrumptious snacks and potent potables at Thriller Social Club, an awesome, high-end combination bar–arcade–carnival midway. All guests will get a $20 game card, so you can get your game on. Wanna go (of course you do)? Get on the waitlist!


Get on the waitlist for ControlUp's party at VMware Explore 2022!


Events are back, friends, and ControlUp is gonna make sure VMware Explore is one for the ages! We’ll be adding more information and activities as we get closer, so follow us on Twitter (@ControlUp) and LinkedIn so you don’t miss a thing. See you in San Francisco!
