Top 5 Reasons to Experience Avaya Engage with Us in Orlando

If you’re still on the fence about attending Avaya Engage, December 12-15 in Orlando, FL here are just a few compelling reasons to make the trip to the wonderful world of Avaya (I bet you thought I was going to say, Disney!). For those who have joined us for previous Avaya Engage events, you already know it’s a valuable experience for anyone who is in the business of delivering employee or customer experiences. For those who have yet to attend, let me further pique your interest.  

Read on for my Top Five reasons why you should clear the decks, pack your bags, and head to Orlando to attend Avaya Engage. 

  1. Speakers with insights on transformation, and how our experience can help you create better experiences

We love to name-drop, and we have an exciting lineup of speakers, featuring legendary American professional soccer player Carli Lloyd. We will highlight customers sharing some of their amazing success stories. Of course, we will have Avaya execs featuring CEO Jim Chirico, Chief Revenue Officer Stephen Spears, CMO Simon Harrison, and our solution engineering leader Todd Zerbe. Joining them will be Oscar Moncada, President, IAUG Board of Directors, and a host of our ecosystem partners. All designed to give you insights you can take back to work and use to spark improvements and drive transformation across your organization. Keep your eyes and ears open for more featured guest speakers to come!

  1. Educational deep dives

With over 80 breakout sessions hosted by experts from Avaya, and our customers and partners, your biggest challenge will be to fit them all into four days! We’ll address today’s critical business challenges through panel conversations, workshops, and individual sessions designed with your specific needs in mind. You’ll gain strategies to accelerate business success, and you can explore how Avaya OneCloud™ solutions can help you compose total experiences to transform your customer and employee engagement, satisfaction, and loyalty.

  1. Networking with experts and peers
    Avaya Engage is the perfect setting to connect with old friends, exchange insights with peers, and learn from industry experts and analysts. With over 1,500 attendees, those 80 breakout sessions, and 50 exhibitors, you’ll have many unique opportunities to and gain insider knowledge and learn the latest on both current and future technologies. We’ll host a Women in Tech track featuring female industry leaders discussing challenges, inspirations, and how we can all work together to influence positive change. And the Avaya booth at our exhibit hall will present a Playground of Possibilities, where you can experience first-hand how composed experiences can turn challenges into opportunities for any organization.
  2. Community Leadership
    If you’re a part of the Avaya family, you already know how deeply we care about building strong relationships and communities. We’re bringing those values with us to Engage. This year, we will come together to support STEM2 Hub, a network dedicated to ensuring students have the opportunity to engage in quality instruction and experiences that will open doors to future science and technology careers.
  3. Social Community and Experiences
    We’re here to learn and listen, but who says we can’t have a little (or a lot of) fun, too? We will kick off the event with our trademark welcoming party. This year, we’re hitting the beach at Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort Beach & Cabana Pool as we all get a chance to meet and mingle face-to-face for the first time in nearly two years. To close out our four days together, IAUG will host our closing experience celebration for a sendoff you won’t want to miss.

Come meet us at the happiest place on earth to learn about the latest innovations and industry trends, make new connections, network with peers, ignite new ideas, and have some fun — all as you experience the wonderful world of Avaya Engage.
