• Activities and Social Events

    Networking and social opportunities to attend during your time at Cisco Live.

    Lunch & Learn

    At Cisco Live, lunch is more than just a time to refuel and recharge. It’s also an opportunity to interact and engage with Cisco experts and your peers in group discussions focusing on the technical topics of your choice. Lunch & Learn, formerly Table Topics, discussions offer a fresh perspective on the issues that everyone is talking about at Cisco Live. These are your sessions to talk about what’s on your mind.


    Please note: This is a free, walk-in event for Main Conference pass and IT Management pass attendees. Pre-registration is not required. Seating and lunch are based on availability, so arrive early.

    NetVet Program


    NetVets play a unique role in the Cisco Live community. As long-time attendees of Cisco Live events, NetVets have a unique perspective – one that is valued by both Cisco and by fellow attendees. As an appreciation for your continued support of Cisco Live, we offer several exclusive benefits to this select group of networking professionals.


    To be eligible for NetVet status you will need to have attended at least three previous Cisco Live events in Europe on a Main Conference or IT Management pass in the last five years (i.e. from 2012 to 2016 inclusive)*.


    Along with recognition of your loyalty to Cisco, you’ll also enjoy special benefits that can enhance your Cisco Live experience.


    Benefits Include:


    • Access to our NetVet Lounge where daily refreshments will be served
    • NetVet t-shirt and pin
    • Your name in lights at the Keynote session as you and other NetVets are acknowledged on a rotating screen credit
    • Access to Schedule Builder one week earlier


    *The NetVet program is specific to the Cisco Live Europe event. Attendance at other Cisco Live events throughout the world does not count towards the NetVet program. CCIE status must be current to qualify as a CCIE NetVet. The NetVet program is open to Cisco customers only, employees are not eligible.


    How do I register as a NetVet:


    The Cisco Live event registration tool will automatically identify your NetVet status and qualification. If the system is not recognizing your NetVet status, you will need to provide our Customer Service team with proof of attendance to three Cisco Live Europe events in the past five years. If you have questions about your status, please contact our customer service team at:
