Special Tours:

Cisco Customer Experience Center Tour

We'll be visiting the New York City Center where you'll partake in interactive demonstrations and discussions with Cisco industry and technology experts to see how an intelligent network can transform your business.

You'll learn about:

  1. SMART LIGHTING and SMART+CONNECTED BUILDINGS. In the future, buildings will sense a lot of things about their use and adapt on the fly, lighting will be smart in the sense that it'll change the mood of a space based on how it is being used.
  2. The latest Immersive TelePresence room and will blow your minds with the realism this sort of system brings to distributed meetings. Learn how to think about how this sort of tech can connect some the major hubs of a business across the globe.
  3. Go on a tour of collaborative spaces (meeting rooms) and personal focus areas. Think about what technology is important to support small agile teams and what sort of tools are given to workers.
