After nearly two years, Cisco Live! 2022 is back in-person in the latest return to form for the IT Channel. This year’s event is centered on celebrating the many successes and advancements that have occurred due to collaboration among everyone in the IT channel. The event is specifically celebrating the genuine “ALL IN” attitude that has helped the channel transform and thrive despite all the challenges of the past two years.
The theme of this year’s Cisco Live! conference was born from the “all in this together” mantra that Cisco partners have emphasized recently. A spokesperson for the event added that “If anyone’s been ALL IN this past year, it’s you. Keeping apps running, connections connected, and companies adapting and growing. And keeping everything, everywhere, secure.”
Now, back in person where it was originally scheduled to take place, Cisco Live! 2022 promises to be a week filled with community, shared experiences, and discovering new solutions to bring to users. Several Cisco notables will be appearing as keynote speakers, including Chuck Robbins, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; Todd Nightingale, EVP and General Manager, Enterprise Networking and Cloud; Liz Centoni, EVP, Chief Strategy Officer, and General Manager, Applications; among others. Each thought leader will share insight and discuss the latest products and ideas that Cisco and its partners have been developing.
Throughout the week there will be a great deal of strategizing, learning, and sharing, but there is always plenty of room for leisure and fun as well. Another exciting part of Cisco Live! 2022 will be the return of live performances with two Grammy-winning singers/bands: Dave Matthews Band and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.
Despite being held virtually last year, Cisco Live! 2021 saw one of the largest turnouts ever. For this year’s event, organizers hope to continue the trend of enabling attendees all around the globe to participate together in person or virtually. Gerri Elliot, EVP and Chief Customer and Partner Officer at Cisco, estimated more than 100,000 people from approximately 200 countries logged into this two-day virtual event last year and she hopes to exceed that number this year.
Following on from the success of last year’s event, organizers seek to provide an environment where members of the IT channel can continue to gather and discuss the various new technologies and solutions, specifically those at the forefront of the hybrid work trend currently impacting organizations all around the world.
This year’s Cisco Live! may still seem quite distant, but with fewer than two months before going live, the conference is creeping up quickly and will be here in no time. In-person spots are limited, so purchasing tickets and registering today is essential for anyone looking to attend. If you are unable to attend in Las Vegas, be sure to check out how you can attend online for free. No matter how you choose to attend, however, be sure to come prepared to discuss the many ways that the IT Channel is helping to build a more efficient, secure, and connected world.
