It’s time again for Cisco Live on the East Coast! Cisco Live 2018 comes to us again from the Sunshine State in Orlando, FL. It’s good to be out of the blazing heat of Las Vegas and back to the relative sweltering broil that is central Florida in June. This year, Cisco Live is coming in early in the summer to kick off the conference season instead of rounding it out.
The event itself has changed a bit this year. The Imagine Pass is the lowest level of pass that will grant access to the conference. The Imagine Pass is also much more expensive than the social pass options from years past. This could have an effect of limiting the number of attendees and folks that are attending the conference. But time will tell if people find the extra value in all the new additions to the conference and choose to pay the extra cost to attend.
Making The List
The best way to let people know that you’re in Orlando and ready to have some fun at Cisco Live 2018 is getting yourself added to the Cisco Live 2018 Twitter List! It’s been going strong for many years now and helps all kinds of people announce that they’re at the event and ready to take part in all the activities.
Want to get on the list? The rules are easy:
- Send my your Name, Twitter Handle, Blog or Website, and a short note about yourself
- Please send me your personal handle. You may DJ for a corporate account, but unless that’s your only handle please send us the “real” you.
- A short note is just that. Not a paragraph or a PBS biography. The table space is short, so brevity is key. Popular items include CCIE numbers, DJ’ed corporate accounts, or amusing things. Be creative!
