Global technology business Cisco has been working closely with George P Johnson on producing the event, which is being held in London for the first time after three years in Barcelona.
Around 4,000 people – including IT managers, developers and technology industry experts – are expected to attend the event from 31 January to 3 February, along with a further 2,000 attending virtually.
Cisco’s chief executive John Chambers will present the keynote speech on Tuesday morning, while breakout sessions and networking will take place throughout the event.
Meanwhile, Cisco’s World of Solutions Expo has this year signed up 107 exhibitors, compared to 64 last year, and 53 in 2009.
Cisco’s marketing project manager James Bedford said: "It has grown massively and is the biggest event we have ever had. It is a fantastic way to be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Cisco Live Networkers."
