We’re now less than two weeks away from the start of the EMEAR edition of Cisco Live 2019, so it’s time to start thinking about what you hope to get out of the event — as well as what to pack!
We’ve put together a few tips on what you can expect over the five days of this much-anticipated event, as well as some handy navigation points to help you make the best use of your time while you are there — and decide which of the 800-plus sessions you should attend. We’re expecting 15,000 attendees and 120 sponsors — it’s going to be a busy week!
First, let’s highlight some of the events that you really don’t want to miss! Your first port of call should be Monday’s Service Provider Opening Session, which provides a fantastic opportunity to learn, connect and be inspired by Cisco’s top executives, together with our partners and customers. We’ll be discussing key industry and technology trends as well as current geo-political challenges, and the ways in which Cisco is uniquely positioned to help you differentiate through customer experience, managed services and, looking ahead, 5G.

The Service Provider Opening Session will be followed by the Service Provider Reception where you can relax over a few drinks and take some time to network with colleagues and peers. We’ve even arranged a free shuttle to get you to and from the Fira.
