vExpert Freebies

Every year vExperts are chosen all round the world for their contribution towards the VMware community and for their efforts VMware offers the vExperts access to community (private forum, access to beta products etc.)

Besides the public recognition of being a vExpert, they get additional benefits like free subscriptions, NFR licenses and so on from 3rd party vendors. However the information given below is available on the vExpert Community Page but still I am sharing this so that if anyone has missed it, they can checkout the benefits for year 2015 from here.
