Cisco Live Berlin 2016 thoughts

Cisco Live Berlin 2016 was held last week, 15 – 19 February 2016. I was one of the 12000 attendees of the event and this blog post is a short review about my Cisco Live trip.

Venue

The Venue was huge. There are a lot of huge halls with a lot of connecting halls. It’s easimage7y to get lost, even easier then it was in Milan last year.

It was my first Cisco Live ever and I really should have been there years and years ago! All those great sessions, a lot of awesome people to have great conversations, meeting a lot of people you know from the community… Cisco Live is the place to be for every Cisco engineer / consultant.

This edition of Cisco Live Europe was in MiCo, Milano. I was really impressed by the size of the event: a lot of people recommend to bring your best walking shoes and I can only confirm this. There are 30 minutes in between sessions and if you’re unlucky, you really need thesPhoto 26-01-15 13 22 33e 30 minutes to find, walk and locate the room of your next session. Another very good impression was the amount of attandees and everything Cisco is doing to make the event as much as comfortable for everyone. You will find Cisco employees on every floor, on every corner to help you with all your questions: where is room x? At what time is lunch? Where is lunch?
