Activities - Cisco Live Melbourne


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


NetVets play a unique role in the Cisco Live community. As long-time attendees of Cisco Live events, NetVets have a unique perspective – one that is valued by both Cisco and by fellow attendees. As an appreciation for your continued support of Cisco Live, we offer several exclusive benefits to this select group of networking professionals.


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 2019 Melbourne your fourth event since 2014), 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.


  • NetVet badge recognition
  • You will see your name highlighted during Keynotes


*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 (2014 to 2019 inclusive).

CCIE Recognition Program

As a valued CCIE attending Cisco Live 2019, Melbourne, you can enjoy special benefits during the event*:

  • See your name in lights at the Opening Cisco Keynote!
  • Wear your CCIE Badge Ribbon enabling everyone to acknowledge your CCIE status.

*To qualify to participate in the CCIE program, you must have a valid CCIE certification.
