The Glitz, the Glamour … the Cloud? Cisco’s Week of Partner Marketing Kicks off with Cloud News

- February 28, 2012 - 1 Comment

The Vegas strip is alight with slot machines, neon lights, and…Cisco partners attending Partner Velocity, Cisco’s annual partner marketing conference.

The event kicks off tonight at The Palazzo in Las Vegas, where partners from around the globe will spend the next few days making marketing innovation happen.

Attendees will learn from an all-star lineup of speakers—from best-selling authors Daniel Pink and Sally Hogshead to social media superstar Chris Brogan—who will share insights around cloud marketing, motivation, fascinating customers, crafting, and standing out. (Full Velocity event agenda here.)

And speaking of cloud marketing, whether you’re in Las Vegas or not, the Cisco Cloud Marketing Kit is now available to help you position and market your cloud-based solutions to customers and prospects. It’s completely free and is packed full of resources: collateral, presentations, sales tools, campaign/program links, and more.

Are you ready to make marketing innovation happen?

Now’s your chance to join the cloud revolution. The new marketing kits provide the resources you need to bring cloud to your customers. To learn more about Cisco’s cloud capabilities, download the Cisco CloudVerse: Enabling the World of Many Clouds document.

Meanwhile, if you’re onsite in Las Vegas, be sure to download the mobile app “Cisco Global Events” for your iOS or Android device and select the “Cisco Partner Velocity 2012” event. Connect with event speakers, executives, and fellow partners on Twitter using the #VelocityLV hashtag.
