Overview

Overview

The Cisco GCAB brings together Cisco's executive leadership team and a select group of global business leaders. Through a series of interactive roundtables and discussion forums, participants help Cisco set strategic priorities and shape opportunities for joint success. Because of the limited number of customers selected to attend each GCAB, we ask that participants attend the entire program. To preserve the peer-to-peer nature of this forum, participation is by invitation only and cannot be transferred. GCAB is a great opportunity for participants to meet peers in the industry, share ideas, and guide Cisco on how today’s market transitions will shape our future together.

Registration is open through Wednesday, April 5, 2017.

GCAB 2018 will be held May 8 - 10, 2018. The location will be announced at GCAB Carlsbad.

We look forward to hosting you.
