VeeamON 2023

Thanks to the good people at Veeam including the Veeam Vanguard Program, I wanted to show my appreciation for the upcoming opportunity to attend VeeamON in Miami by sharing a few thoughts that may be beneficial to those interested in the various programs and technologies provided by Veeam.

A special thanks goes to Rick Vanover , Nikola PejkováMadalina Cristil,  Safiya Mohamed, and many others in the Veeam Community for their continued support of my efforts and also for those in the #vCommunity for doing the same. As I’ve stated many times, if you’re not involved in the #vCommunity in some capacity, you’re missing out!

Rick provided me the opportunity to join the Veeam Vanguard Program in 2019 and continues to support my efforts which includes attending VeeamON as a Veeam Vanguard this upcoming May.

What is VeeamON and what does it include if you attend? It’s a yearly conference and it provides an opportunity to meet with industry experts, attend breakout sessions, and Veeam Training if you’re interested in pursuing the VMCA or VMCE certifications. If any of the above motivates you to attend VeeamON 2023, please use this code (VOMIAMI1002) for $100 OFF standard rate for a flat price of $1,299 , but please keep in mind this code expires on May 18. The conference will be from May 22-24th.

In addition to the above, I have included the top five event experiences for VeeamON 2023:

In-person learning opportunities:

Learning remotely just isn’t the same. At VeeamON in Miami you can connect with over 50 different speakers, partners and sponsors either in the classroom, at the Tech Festival or one‑on‑one in different networking opportunities. Plus, deep dive into the NEW Veeam® Data Platform and the enterprise‑grade capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication™ v12 through demos and Hands‑On Labs. Never have so many backup and recovery experts been together in one place to help you expand your cloud, security and recovery skills.


This action‑packed competition brings together contestants from all over the world to tackle the Veeam scenario obstacle course. Competitors will be scored based on how quickly scenarios and environments are completed. Bragging rights for a full year as top Veeam Engineer and awesome prizes are at stake.

Industry insights, trends and visionaries:

Be prepared for what’s next as you get the latest insights from Veeam’s Office of the CTO, tech industry executives and backup experts. VeeamON will be the best place to get the stories and proof points you need to advocate for transformational projects that will keep your business running.

Connect & celebrate with the community:

Enjoy some downtime at one of our happy hours and of course at the can’t‑miss closing celebration. Plus, check out the Veeam Village to play some games in our onsite arcade or catch a live podcast. You deserve a little fun in between all those sessions and technical discussions!

The Iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach:

Rated the #1 Hotel in Miami Beach, the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is one of the most historically and architecturally significant hotels in the area. If you need to recharge, take advantage of our hospitality cabanas at the famous Bowtie pool, or join a yoga group to jumpstart your day. Get discounted room rates if you register and book your room by April 20, 2023.

What is the Veeam Vanguard Program? It’s a community of like minded IT professionals that provide their input and expertise as it applies to Veeam and its technologies. Included in the program is access to Veeam product teams, the Veeam community forum and the ability to network w\ fellow Vanguards. I highly encourage you to check out the video posted here to learn more about the program. Applications for the program are accepted once a year and your best bet to stay on top of any updates related to the program is to follow the Veeam Vanguard Twitter account. I would also suggest getting involved in your local Veeam User Group.
