Meeting Opportunities with Cisco Experts

Make plans to meet with a Cisco expert in Orlando.

Meet the Expert

Thank you for your interest in the MTE program. The Meet the Engineer Scheduler is now closed. Please visit us for MTE Walk-In Meetings located in the Valencia Ballroom, Level 4. We are open Monday – Wednesday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm and Thursday from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm.


Meet the Expert (MTE) is consistently rated as one of the highest value programs at Cisco Live. MTE meetings give you the opportunity to set the agenda for a 1:1 conversation with a Cisco expert. More than 500 engineers, distinguished engineers, senior development engineers, executives, and Cisco Fellows will be available during your time in Orlando for meetings that are a great complement to your on-site training. Make plans now to schedule a personalized discussion focused on your unique questions and challenges.


Topics can include:


  • Product and project validation: Are we using the right solutions and technologies to meet our goals, and are we using the best approach?
  • Solution design and deployment: What is the best way to capitalize on available technologies?
  • Strategy: How does my vision align with what others are doing in the industry?
  • Troubleshooting: What solutions or tactics can I use to address a specific problem?
