Throughout the week of Cisco Live, the World of Solutions exhibition is a hive of activity and energy. Featuring an array of Cisco business units and partners showcasing their solutions, it’s a great place to explore new technologies and get answers to your unique questions. Hands-on labs give you the opportunity to explore and evaluate a range of Cisco technologies, and our Meet the Engineer and Technical Solution Clinics give you access to the people who design Cisco’s solutions and give you the insight you need about your own environment and technical challenges.
As a Cisco Live attendee you benefit from the opportunity to interact with your peers, Cisco staff and partner technical experts in both structured and informal settings. The World of Solutions, at the heart of the event, provides refreshment areas and relaxing lounges; and our Welcome Reception and Customer Appreciation Event are the highlights of the week’s social calendar.
