Cisco Live Information Update – Contest Info


Cisco Live is just a few weeks away as I write this and I am getting excited to see everyone again.  Just wanted to put out a quick post on some of the latest information that has dropped in my inbox.


There will be a few contests this year that will help to keep the social media entertaining.  You can find all the information as well as rules and details at the Cisco live Contest website. Below are just some of the highlights.

#CLUS SuperPhoto

While you are attending Cisco Live this year, snap a pic while you are at the event and share the post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the #CLUS hashtag for a chance to win some prizes.  Prices include an Echo Smart Speaker with Alexa or Nomad Advanced Trackable PowerPack.


#CLUS Cape 

The #CLUS is making its return this year once again.  In order for you to be a CLUS Caped Crusader, the winner will be based on:

  • Sunday: Best pre-show content

  • Tuesday: Best technology keynote and Big Ideas theater insights and content
  • Wednesday: Best WoS and Innovation Showcase insights and content


#CLUS Best Remote Attendee

Not able to make it to the event in person, have no fear as there is a contest for you!  All you need to do is watch the live broadcast and engage via social media!  Just use the hashtag #CLUS with relevant content and be one of the recognized broadcast attendees!  At the end of the week, one of the recognized broadcast attendees will win a Fire HD 8 Tablet!


#CLUS Twitter Trivia Contest

Are you a smart Unicorn? Well, this may be your contest! The details for this contest are still coming out, but there will be a Trivia contest on Twitter. Keep an eye out for more information as the event gets closer!


#CLUS Retweet Contest

This is another one that the information is still coming out on.  The one thing that I do know is that this one will start the week prior (June 4th).  Keep an eye on the official @CiscoLive twitter handle for more info!


Cisco Live 2018 – Tweetup Information!


, ,

Cisco Live 2018 is in a few short weeks, can you believe it?!?! Are you as excited as I am to see everyone?

Well, the first opportunity that we will have will be the Arrival TweetUp that is on Sunday, Jun 10 at 5:45 PM Eastern – and you need to register for the event so they know how many will be there.  You can find the Arrival Tweetup by searching for SOCGEN-1000 in the Scheduler. Also good to note that the Arrival Tweetup will be in Hall C Atrium, Level 2 in order to accommodate everyone. This is actually right in front of the WoS, so should be easy to find. Oh, and the arrival Tweetup photo is scheduled for 6:10 PM.

The closing tweetup is scheduled for Thursday at 4:30 PM in the same location as the arrival Tweetup, Hall C Atrium, Level 2. Again you will need to schedule this so they may plan accordingly.  In the scheduler, search for SOCGEN-1001

The traditional closing Tweetup sign picture will be at 4:40 PM!

See you in a few weeks! Oh, and there is still time to register if you have not!

Cisco Live 2018 – The BAG!



Earlier Cisco dropped the band information, and now we have the bag information too!

The bag this year is a first that I can recall, it is a 2 in 1 backpack convertible into a duffle bag!  The strap pictured on the front of the image below is detachable, yet when attached the bag can be used as a duffle!

In case you are wondering what  Backpack convertible into a duffle bag is, I found some good pics over on eBags of one.

Backpack mode:

Transform and duffle bag mode!
