We’re counting down the days until the Social Media for Savvy Marketers event on April 18 and 19 at the Cisco Headquarters in San Jose and online. As I’m writing this post, we’re doing audio and visual checks and working out the final details. Personally, I’m super excited about Cisco hosting this event for the 4th year in a row and would like to thank everyone who has reached out to me or someone on the Corporate Social Media Marketing team about this event via Twitter, email, or any other ways.

1.       Download the Cisco Global Mobile Social App for a Chance to Win Prizes

Whether you’re joining us in person or virtually, download the Cisco Global Mobile Social app to play, network with your peers and for a chance to win prizes. The app is available for Apple IOS, Blackberry with 6 OS/HTML5, Android 2.0 and above with HTML 5 and Windows 7/HTML 5 and can be downloaded from http://ddut.ch/savvy or look for the app on Android Marketplace or Apple iTunes (Cisco Global Events).

For support, please contact mobileapp@external.cisco.com.

2.       Getting There

If you’re attending in person, please excuse the constructions. We realize this is affecting parking so signs will mark overflow parking areas around and across the street from building 9. We will have parking available right at the heart of the event too but due to limited availability, it will be on a first come, first serve basis. Everything is walking distance but if you plan on arriving later in the day, please allow yourself a few extra minutes for walking.

Cisco employees and contractors: please park at building 1, 2 or 3 and help us save spots around building 9. Thanks in advance!

3.       Connect with Us

We’re standing by for questions before and during our event. We are monitoring the #CiscoSMT and #SocialSavvy hash tags so let us know how we can help and use these hash tags to share your thoughts, ask questions and live tweet from the event.

We can’t wait to see you in person or online!


BONUS TIP: Wear comfortable shoes and bring a sweater or jacket – the production gear will be in the conference room and it requires cooling which could impact the temperature in the room.
