Event description


Hello Again! Welcome to #VMworld2017 and (wait for it. . . ) THE 2017 #CXIParty!!!

As a refresher or for who are new guests, CXI (in the context of conferences and more importantly, parties) means... Communities eXchanging Ideas! Join fellow VMworld VIPs and CXI party style with us all evening long!

If you've attended in the past you know what the routine is, and if you're new to it, this will definitely be a great opportunity to meet your fellow Virtualization Community folks and the absolute excitement that goes on from a community event. Please do check out my sponsors because they help make this possible! <3

"Born out of the Virtualization Community, StitchTek Services does awesome work and has worked with all of the major vendors you've heard of and even some of the smaller Partner / VAR's such as ourselves at Xiologix. They're awesome you should check them out :)" -Me

If you're interested in sponsoring be sure to hit me up.

There are some simple Ground Rules when it comes to attending my parties though, so here they go!

Ground Rules:

  • You are required to make at least 5 new friends. If you came with people, that's great introduce them to someone else and go meet someone else. This is about you, this is about community!
  • Be sure to find a way to thank the sponsors. They make this event possible. (While it's about community, it's much easier to do this kind of thing without asking for donations to make it possible! Love your sponsors!)
  • You know why there's no band? So people can talk and hear each other talk without talking over audio. (So don't turn the TV or Radio on and blare it, if you need something to occupy your senses, go talk to someone!)
  • Bring Business Cards. You're going to meet awesome people, so you should exchange information and talk!
  • Don't print out your ticket. Everything is Digital.
  • Enjoy yourself! This is as much for you as it is for everyone else there.

All seems pretty straight forward, right? Because it is. I'm intentionally throwing a much smaller party this year because some of you may not realize but the last party? Had over 1500 people in attendance. You probably didn't know that because it scaled across -8- floors. Yea. That's a lot of logistics. Now you don't have to worry about chasing down your new best friend in the world! :)

Let's get down to the raw details:

  • This will happen Monday 28 August 2017! Probably starting around 8PM
  • The venue and location will be announced the day of the event. Why? It's a lot harder to index in search engines that way... If you're wondering where though? This description should help, "The location will be “Metropolitan”, “Sophisticated” and “Urbane”
  • Follow me on Twitter @CXI and can provide details there. Also don't hesitate to txt me for information 971-998-3552 or email christopher.kusek@pkguild.com or ckusek@xiologix.com
  • There's no plan to be food there. There is plan to have a healthy set of drinks there. Veterans of past #CXIParties can attest to what that entails. Though there MAY be a pizza acquisition like last year…
  • Who tends to attend? Community Leaders, #vExperts, Authors, Bloggers, Executives, Tacos!

Some of you may wonder how you can help?

  • Want to sponsor? That's one way to help.
  • Want to be a community bartender? Everyone there will be in the Industry in some form.
  • Want to do some giveaways, hit me up, I can probably arrange that...

If you have questions about what it takes, what this entails, how you can attend or whatever, just let me know.

Lastly if you find yourself all trapped and alone while there and not sure how or who to talk to. I'll change that. (It'll happen anyway... just look all sad and alone in a corner and I'll find you or find me;))
