Activities - Cisco Live Melbourne


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



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


If you have attended at least three previous Cisco Live conferences worldwide on a Full Conference or IT Management registration pass in the last five years (making Cisco Live 2018 Melbourne 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:

  • NetVet badge recognition
  • You will see your name highlighted during Keynotes
  • You are entitled to receive a complimentary Technical Seminar on Tuesday 6 March (up to the value of AUD$600)
  • Unique NetVet cap


How to register as a NetVet:

The Cisco Live event registration tool will automatically identify your NetVet status and qualification based on your email address.

If the system is not recognising your NetVet status, you may need to provide proof of attendance to three Cisco Live events in the past five years. Please contact the Cisco Live Events Team if you have any queries about your status.


*To be eligible for NetVet status, you must have attended Cisco Live Melbourne or Cisco Live globally as paid full conference pass delegate, or on a full conference pass through an invite only program for four Cisco Live Conferences (2013 to 2018 inclusive).
