Cisco Live 2013 at venue London Excel was an IT-focused thought-leadership event that took place from 29 January to 1 February 2013. Attracting more than 7,000 delegates from across 70 countries provided numerous logistical and technical challenges.

As a technological education event, content is key and this year's event achieved record feedback. Industry leaders educated attendees on the future of technologies, practices and the dynamics of the industry, with keynotes broadcast live on a 75m-wide curved screen.

Meanwhile, a 'Meet The Engineer' programme allowed delegates at the event to engage with experts one-on-one.

Delegates after the event scored the overall keynote experience with an average 4.29 out of five, while 99% said the one-on-one sessions answered their questions.

Social media lay at the heart of Cisco Live, which was physically represented at the venue by The Social Media Hub, a two-tier installation that allowed delegates to turn digital interactions into actual meetings.
