Case Study | Cisco Live


AVT Productions has provided event production services for multinational firm Cisco Systems since 1999. One of the events we support is their Cisco Live Executive Program, along with other parts of the 25,000-person Cisco Live user/customer conference that educates and inspires global tech innovators.

Cisco Live Executive Symposium (Since 2005)

Two-day premiere, high-end opportunity for 125 C-level tech leaders to collaborate.

The invitation-only program is designed to help educate and inspire the most senior IT leaders to lead digital transformation in their organizations. Each year, AVT Productions focuses on user experience design, producing and executing an intimate event for attendees.

Cisco Live IT Management Program (Since 2011)

Four-day production that gives 750-1,000 IT managers, directors, VPs, and CIOs from global brands the knowledge to transform their IT organizations.

AVT Productions manages the general session and 300-person breakout room working sessions. Starting in 2016, a new connected keynote experience enables attendees to participate in an enterprise-scale gathering.

Approximately 50-75 AUX meetings at 4 hotels and numerous breakout sessions for 20-125-person groups give 1,200 Cisco Live attendees opportunities to meet in small groups.

AVT Productions coordinates auxiliary and breakout room production during the 5-day show and handles sessions directly before and after Cisco Live.

We can’t imagine pulling off the event with anyone but you and your team.
