    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 group discussions focusing on the technical topics of your choice. Lunch & Learn, formerly Table Topics, 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.


    Please note: This is a free, walk-in event for full-conference pass attendees. Pre-registration is not required. Seating and lunch are based on availability, so arrive early.



    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 Cisco Live Cancun conferences on a Full Conference or IT Management registration type in the last four years (making Cisco Live 2016 Cancun 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, priority session scheduling. You’ll also receive a conference badge that showcases your NetVet status.


    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.


    NetVet Lounge


    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.


    NetVet Registration


    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
