I’m currently in Barcelona at our Marketing Velocity event with more than 200 of our partner marketers. This event is designed for us to jointly discuss trends impacting our industry, and accelerate marketing practices by connecting, educating, and activating our partner marketing community at – and beyond – the event.

We know the importance of marketing within a buyers’ journey. Together with our partner marketers, we are on the front lines of creating amazing experiences for our joint customers. We strive to enable our partners and accelerate their marketing practices with the right resources to fuel growth through marketing. When partners embrace the resources we offer, create connections between each other, and activate their marketing practices to drive change, we see big business impact and even more comprehensive solutions to solve customers’ challenges. Partners and Cisco are a force multiplier. When we work together to up-level our marketing, we are up-leveling our business.

Tonight, I was joined on stage by Karen Walker and Wendy Bahr to recognize eight partners receiving Marketing Velocity awards who are up-leveling their marketing practices to drive exceptional customer experiences. I’d like to congratulate each of the following partners for their innovative marketing practices.

  • Youngwoo Digital Co
  • Compugen Inc
  • Cisilion Ltd
  • XiaoTong Networking Technology CO. Ltd
  • EVOX
  • Verizon
  • Veeam Software

Each partner and marketing campaign that has been recognized from around the world has proven to be a great investment. Stay tuned as we share more details about our partners’ award-winning marketing practices.
