Cisco’s flagship event to set the spotlight on solutions that will transform the information technology landscape in SA.
Cisco announced that it will be hosting its premier customer and partner event, Cisco Expo South Africa, at Sun City, from 3 to 5 March 2013. Themed “Built for the Human Network”, Cisco Expo South Africa 2013 will offer delegates a showcase of how the network can transform the way South Africans connect, communicate and collaborate, as well as demonstrate how successfully Cisco’s network meets the needs of businesses to keep companies in South Africa highly competitive, protected, and above all, able to cost-effectively embrace technology today and in the future.
The event will feature keynote presentations and breakout sessions delivered by global and regional Cisco executives and subject matter experts. It will also include Cisco Partner showcases and workshops focusing on critical 21st century technology trends, such as collaboration, bring your own device (BYOD), business video and data center virtualization. Official sponsor will be Bytes Technology Group, a leading group of ICT companies that offers a multitude of products, technical skills, specialized services, and support and state-of-the-art solutions to a broad spectrum of clients across business sectors throughout Africa.
Cisco Expo South Africa 2013 attendees will also experience the ‘World of Solutions’ showcase, which is an interactive exhibition area that includes product demonstrations from Cisco and its partners. Demos will range from simple connectivity to an intelligent platform that can dramatically improve productivity and collaboration for businesses, service providers and governments. The showcase will also provide a platform for sponsors and exhibitors to engage with attendees from across the continent.
From participants to visitors, delegates can expect to be able to network with senior management, network administrators, network architects and many others from mid-market and large enterprises in South Africa, local and central government and service providers – all of whom play a pivotal role in shaping the future of South Africa. This further underpins Cisco Expo’s role as a premier business and technology platform that unites talented information and communication technology (ICT) professionals, equipping them with the right ICT skills to help them thrive and compete in the ever-changing global 21st century workforce.

Bringing our powerful combination of deep customer commitment, an unparalleled expertise and experience in building and delivering an intelligent network to the forefront, Cisco Expo South Africa is rapidly establishing itself as a significant technology event in the regional calendar.”
Cathy Burns Marketing Lead, Cisco South Africa
“Our 2011 Expo was attended by 1 000 delegates, and based on this precedence, we are anticipating that Cisco Expo South Africa 2013 will be a heavily subscribed event. We encourage those planning to attend to take advantage of our early-bird registration offer, which will close on 25 September 2012, as we are only able to accommodate 1 200 attendees. For our 2013 event, we are once again partnering with some of the leading technology companies in South Africa that have committed to sponsorship packages and are working closely with us to deliver a world-class event. We value the commitment of our sponsors who have helped us put Cisco Expo South Africa firmly on the map.”
