Cisco Live! kicks off today at 8:45am PT and is expecting over 100,000 customers and partners to attend from over 200 countries and territories around the world. Cisco will be turning up the excitement, the inspiration and the fun for attendees this year, with a fully digital experience over two days. The theme is “Turn IT Up,” and will celebrate customers and partners continue to be the IT heroes of their organizations over the last year.
The event will feature keynotes from top Cisco executives, including Chairman and CEO Chuck Robbins, as well as innovation talks, hands-on labs, and leadership and technical education sessions. In addition, attendees can expect interactive musical performances from icons including Keith Urban, The Killers and Brittany Howard, and celebrity appearances from Bill Nye, Billie Jean King, Serena Williams and more.
The past year has shown us we’re stronger together and that technology can empower us to find new ways to connect, secure and automate a world that is ever-changing and increasingly digital. Whether it’s building an inclusive internet for the future, helping businesses prepare for a new era of remote and hybrid work, giving customers choice in when and how they buy and deploy technologies, or using data to empower teams to create a more collaborative and inclusive culture, IT is front and center in helping organizations survive, and thrive, during these challenging times.
