Social and Networking Activities

Don't miss these events during your time in Cancun.


For NetVets, Cisco Live is more than a conference. It’s a tradition.


If you have attended at least three previous Cisco Live conferences (on a Full Conference or IT Management registration pass) in the last five years (making Cisco Live 2017 Cancun your fourth event since 2013), you’re eligible for NetVet status.


As a NetVet, you’ll enjoy special benefits that can enhance your Cisco Live experience. The perks include a pass to the NetVet Lounge. You’ll also receive a conference badge that showcases your NetVet status.


The Cisco Live event registration tool will automatically identify your NetVet status and qualification. If you have questions about your status, please contact customer service.
