The US edition is already finished, and there is less than a month to the European edition of VMworld 2012, this year (for the first time) at Barcelona (October 9-11).

The reasons to attend at this event could be similar to the reasons to attend at the VMworld US, plus of course the opportunity to visit Barcelona that this an awesome city!

In the European edition that is shorted (three days instead of four), there is also an addition day (on Monday) dedicated only for the VMware Partner, and this could be another reason (if you are an European partner and you cannot attend at the official Partner Exchange).

If you already have attend the VMworld US maybe there aren’t too much reasons (IMHO the two events are too close), but seems that other announces will be made during the europen event, so why not (at least one time) try to compare the two different edition on the same year?

I also hope that will confirmed also the 50% discount on each VMware exam, but actually it’s not listed on the special program page, and previous link refer only to the VMworld US. Was a great opportunity and Certification lounge was really cool at San Francisco. Discount has been confirmed and promotional code are VMWBAR50 for VCP exans and ADVBAR50 for VCAP.
