Labs and Technical Seminars

Explore the in-depth, hands-on learning opportunities available to you while onsite at Cisco Live.


Labs and Technical Seminars offer a prime opportunity to learn more about the core technologies driving the digital transformation of business from the experts themselves. These sessions expand and build on the content delivered in the technical breakout sessions to deep dive into the topics that matter most to you. Leave these sessions knowing how to configure, trouble shoot, and address your own issues back at the office.

Technical Seminars (4 and 8 Hours)

Cisco Live’s comprehensive half-day and full-day Technical Seminars address a wide variety of technology areas, design principles, and best practices. Offered only on Monday, January 27, the Technical Seminars complement their corresponding technology breakout sessions. You can book the Technical Seminar sessions as you register for Cisco Live 2020, Barcelona but make sure you register early to reserve your preferred session. Technical Seminars are priced in addition to your Main Conference pass or IT Management Program pass fee.

Instructor Led Labs (4 hours)

Installing and troubleshooting network technologies, performing “what-if” scenarios, and practicing risky network operations in a simulated environment moderated by Cisco experts are the best ways to get critical hands-on experience. Several labs serve as preparation for specific Cisco Certifications exams. Main Conference and IT Management Program attendees are entitled to one 4-hour lab session (subject to availability).
