    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 small group discussions focusing on the technical topics of your choice. Lunch & Learn 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.



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


    If you have attended at least three previous Networkers or Cisco Live conferences (on a Full Conference or IT Management registration pass) in the last five years (making Cisco Live U.S. 2017 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, a free e-book from Cisco Press and priority session scheduling. You’ll also receive a unique conference lanyard that showcases your NetVet status. NetVets holding current CCIE or CCDE certifications enjoy additional benefits, including a special reception with Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, priority Keynote seating, and an exclusive lapel pin.


    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.

    Social Events


    This year, Cisco Live is focusing on how world-class training and education can help you thrive in the world of digital business. But it’s also important to take time to celebrate and enjoy the here and now. Cisco Live offers ample opportunities to have some fun, recharge your batteries, and get to know your fellow attendees outside of the classroom. Learn more about the nightly receptions in the World of Solutions and about our world-class Customer Appreciation Event.
