Melbourne has arguably some of the greatest hotels Australia has to offer. Cisco Live 2023 Melbourne is working with BCD Meetings & Events and Hotel Map* to suggest hotels for your stay in Melbourne. Please note that it is your responsibility to book your accommodation directly with your preferred hotel - we recommend that you do this as soon as possible. The registration process and the hotel booking process are not linked. To enter Hotel Map and book your accommodation, please click the button below.

Hotels and Rates

If you need assistance making your online hotel booking, you can contact BCD M&E. The email address to send your query to is quoting Event Reference Code M3YXN.

If you cancel your attendance of the event itself, please ensure you cancel your booking directly with the hotel. Failure to cancel your hotel booking could result in a full cancellation charge for the entire number of nights booked.

*Any contract for accommodation will be between you and the third party supplier, and Cisco is not responsible for such contract in any way. Cisco does not supply any personal data to such third party supplier.
