EMPOWER 2018 is the first reboot of the VMware PEX event. Partner Exchange was a solid technical focused conference held for VMware Partners to gain knowledge and direction direct from the VMware mothership. Many partners had voiced concerns that VMworld had become too customer focused and sales-y so the PEX was born. With the reboot of PEX, VMware hopes to go even deeper into the technical training and is offering the same training, boot camps and ramp up sessions that it holds for it’s own internal VMware SEs in it’s professional services organization.
