Special benefits for NetVet attendees.



NetVets play a unique role in the Cisco Live community. As long-time attendees of Cisco Live and Networkers events, they have a unique perspective — one that makes them a valuable resource to their fellow attendees and for Cisco itself.

If you have attended at least three previous Networkers or Cisco Live conferences globally on a Full Conference or IT Management registration type in the last five years (making Cisco Live U.S. 2016 your fourth event since 2012), you’re eligible for NetVet status.

Along with recognition of your loyalty to Cisco, you’ll also enjoy special benefits that can enhance your Cisco Live experience. The perks include a pass to the NetVet Lounge, a free e-book from Cisco Press*, and priority session scheduling. You’ll also receive a unique conference badge that showcases your NetVet status.

NetVets holding current CCIE or CCDE certifications enjoy additional benefits, including:

  • Special reception with John Chambers
  • Priority seating in the General Session and Innovation Talks
  • Exclusive lapel pin

For NetVets, Cisco Live is more than a conference. It’s a tradition. If you meet the attendance criteria discussed above, be sure to claim your NetVet status at registration and take advantage of the available benefits that can make your Cisco Live experience even better.

Cisco Live NetVets deserve special treatment, so we invite you to enjoy the exclusive NetVets area where you can relax, check your email, and much more. The NetVet Lounge also offers loyal Cisco Live alumni complimentary light snacks and beverages.
