VMware’s comprehensive and industry-leading services and solutions made a big impact in China in 2017, earning 12 social honors from commercial, IT, consumer media, and local authorities. While cloud technology is empowering enterprises to achieve business success in today’s multi-cloud era, VMware's sustainability initiatives and new experience center will continue to encourage the company’s brand growth and enhanced reputation in China. 

VMware's Beijing office, relocated to Genesis Beijing in the core zone of the Yansha business circle, was built based on LEED® Gold standards and incorporates the sustainable construction concept of low energy consumption and high performance. It reflects VMware’s belief of using technology as a Force for Good, and the company’s support for green initiatives and environmental protection.

VMware Briefing Centre China, the first experience center of its kind in Greater China, has been launched to build an experience platform for face-to-face communication with VMware experts. As part of the experience center’s program, VMware will create and facilitate customized presentations and discussions that address business scenarios and challenges for different institutions based on their company size, vertical, and specific needs. The program aims to provide a unique learning experience for visitors, enabling them to better understand how VMware technologies can empower their businesses in meeting strategic growth objectives and realizing business value.
