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 discussions offer a fresh perspective on the issues that everyone is talking about at Cisco Live.



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


If you have attended at least three previous Networkers or Cisco Live conferences (on a Full Conference or IT Management registration pass) in the last five years (making Cisco Live U.S. 2018 your fourth event since 2014), you’re eligible for NetVet status.


As a NetVet, you’ll enjoy special benefits that can enhance your Cisco Live experience including:


  • Access to the NetVet Lounge
  • A free e-book from Cisco Press
  • Priority session scheduling
  • A unique conference lanyard that showcases your NetVet status.


NetVets holding current CCIE or CCDE certifications enjoy additional benefits, including a special reception with Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, priority Keynote seating, and an exclusive lapel pin.


The Cisco Live event registration tool will automatically identify your NetVet status and qualification based on your email address. If you have questions about your status, please contact customer service.
