Cisco Marketing Velocity 2015 and Cisco Partner Summit 2015 are just around the corner. It’s likely that those of you joining us in Montreal are already set for your trip. However, you may not have thought of everything on THIS list…

Take a look through this blog and I’ll make sure you have everything you need to stay updated leading up to, and throughout the week of Marketing Velocity and Partner Summit.

Marketing Velocity will be held on Monday, April 27 at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel. Partner Summit will be held Tuesday, April 28 – 30 at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal.  Shuttle service between hotels and the Palais des Congrès de Montréal will be provided if you are attending both events. Attire is business casual, and jeans are perfectly acceptable during the event.
