May 12, 2021 – Cisco announced an intent to acquire Socio Labs, a vendor delivering an interactive platform for hosting and managing in-person, virtual, and hybrid events. Socio’s platform is used to enable audience interaction, virtual exhibit halls, and sponsorship management, before, during, and after events. It allows for event organizers to manage registration, content delivery, and post-event follow-up for small to large scale events involving multiple sessions. Cisco expects the acquisition to close in its fiscal Q4 (ending July 31, 2021).
