During October 15-18 (Partner day on October 14) VMworld Europe will be held again in (I hope) sunny Barcelona.
As each year vendors, VMUGs en vFans organize parties. Most are free to attend as they are kindly sponsored.
Trend Micro has a special offer. They provide an indoor skydive experience.
Tuesday, October 15 11:00–18:30
Wednesday, October 16 11:00–18:00
Trend Micro is providing attendees at VMworld 2013 the unique chance to experience the feeling of skydiving on a vertical wind tunnel. Simply register your interest at the Trend Micro stand (P204), confirm your flight time and start flying. The wind tunnel is located between Halls 7 and 5 outside. The entrance is through Hall 7.
As this is outside I *guess* it could look like this truck.
