Cisco Live is Cisco’s premier annual user conference where partners and customers learn new technologies, discuss business trends, share ideas and network!
This past week, we surpassed our attendance expectations and we had more than 25,000 attendees at Cisco Live in San Diego!
Let’s Build Tomorrow Today was the main theme of the event and I can assure you I felt the urgency all along the planning and the execution of the event! Innovation on the Internet of Everything was seen everywhere across the Cisco Campus in the World of Solutions. This year customers were shown complete Cisco solutions as to how connecting people, processes, data and things can create incredible opportunities for new revenues, compete with competitors, and offer better experiences to drive efficiency and value.
The excitement and the buzz leading to Cisco Live and more importantly during the event can hardly be described and captured in words, but I will try to give a glimpse into that frenzy mode.
Arriving early afternoon on Sunday, June 7th at the San Diego convention center for registration was my first action item. I scratched it off from my to-do list really quickly as it only took me a few minutes to register. The Cisco Live team had everything so well organized that made registration a nice and quick experience. Many customers and partners were already there actively participating in technical sessions or labs.
I ran into a couple of our Cisco Designated VIPs in the convention center hallways, took some fun photos,
