Cisco Live is in Las Vegas, NV again this year, from June 25-29th.  I am really looking forward to attending this year – it will be my 13th consecutive Cisco Live! It amazes me how time flies and also how much fun a single week can be. This year I am also bringing my wife, so will be a kid-free getaway for us.
If you still have not registered there is still plenty of time left to register for the event.   I wanted to take a moment and cover the basic registration packages available for the event.  The available passes are Full Conference, IT Management, Explorer Pass, Cisco Empowered Women’s Network + Explorer,  and Social Pass + Explorer. The Full Conference, IT Management are all discounted if you pre-register.
The Full Conference Pass is the most common pass that people register for.  This pass includes just about everything that the event has to offer – Technical Sessions, Wold of Solutions, Keynotes, DevNet, meals, as well as the infamous Customer Appreciation Event.

The IT Management Pass includes everything that the Full Conference pass but adds some additional Management sessions for Executives.  This portion of Cisco Live is really geared towards Directors, Managers, CxOs, etc as the sessions are usually with Cisco Executives.  This is a more leadership driven program and will help you to use Cisco technology to drive your business into the future.
The Explorer Pass is a more limited experience as it only includes World of Solutions and DevNet.  No technical sessions are included, no Customer Appreciate Event and no meals.  This is a limited pass but is great if you just want to check out World of Solutions and meet with vendors and network with your peers.
Cisco Empowered Women’s Network + Explorer Pass has everything the Explorer Pass has but adds The Cisco Empowered Women’s Network Sunday event and Reception.  This is an awesome opportunity to network with the women in the industry.
Social Pass + Explorer Pass has everything the Explorer Pass has but adds in the Customer Appreciate Event as well as the Cisco Live Social Events.  This pass is a great way to experience the event for your partner, or if you are unable to get the full conference pass.  You get all the joys of the event, but just miss out on the technical.  If you are bringing your significant other, this is the pass you want for them.
Looking forward to seeing you there this year!
