IT 2020 conference rescheduling continues to take shape as COVID-19 disruption tests event planners. After ongoing monitoring of the pandemic, both HPE and VMware have opted for virtual events.

Other organizations, who as of a few weeks ago, cancelled physical events but offered no new details at that time, have firmed up event plans.

HPE Discover Virtual Experience starts on June 22. This includes HPE Partner Growth Summit at HPE Discover. The immersive, interactive platform will include live and on-demand content. HPE customers and partners will find tailored content on current topics and trends. Registration is open and HPE suggests attendees watch for updates about the online event.

VMware this week cancelled VMworld 2020, scheduled for Aug. 31-Sept. 3, in San Francisco. The vendor also cancelled VMworld Barcelona schedule for November. The VMworld 2020 global digital event will take place the week of Sept. 28.

The virtual conference will be interactive with participation and collaboration available, worldwide. Attendees will hear from VMware executives, get access to education and technical content, and engage with industry experts. The vendor is also considering offering small, regional physical events later in the year.
