Partner Summit 2012 Kicks Off in San Diego!

April 16, 2012 at 5:25 pm PST

Cisco Partner Summit 2012 began today in San Diego for those attending onsite. There’s a lot of excitement in the air, and we’re thrilled to begin meeting partners, attending sessions, and sharing top news.

We know a few of you are already here, but for those of you arriving later today, or joining us on Virtual Partner Summit, don’t forget to refer to the handy checklist we created to help you navigate the event. You’ll find key information about our Partner Summit Ambassador bloggers who will be providing partner perspectives, our new Roving Reporter who will be providing the inside scoop, how you can win an iPad or snag a t-shirt, and how to stay updated on all the Partner Summit news as it happens.

And speaking of Virtual Partner Summit, have you registered yet? There’s still time to register, so make sure you head over to the Cisco Virtual Partner Summit 2012 page. Once you’ve registered, start building your personalized agenda under the sessions tab so that you don’t miss out on any of the action.

What kind of action you ask? Well, on Tuesday, April 17 at 9 a.m. PST, we’ve got John Chambers, Keith Goodwin, and Edison Peres kicking off the event at the Global General Session. We also have Executive Chats, where you can interact directly with executives; Geo and Theater Sessions; guest speakers; and Business Transformation Breakouts happening throughout the week. I also hear there may be some exciting entertainment, so make sure you tune in.

If you can’t make the event live or virtually, replays will be available on the Cisco Virtual Partner Summit 2012 platform each evening and for 30 days after Partner Summit.

Finally! Partner Summit is just around the corner. The Cisco team is excited to see you in person, beginning on April 16 in sunny San Diego, California.

If you’re not going to be in San Diego, you can still attend virtually. Just tune in via Virtual Partner Summit (VPS), beginning on April 17. All you need to do is register.

You’ll hear keynotes and have the opportunity to participate in live chat with top executives and regional leaders such as John Chambers, Padmasree Warrior, Edison Peres, and Jim Sherriff,  to name a few. You can also join your regional theater breakouts covering topics for all the geographies.
