Genesys CX18 is right around the corner and we’ve got some exciting things in store. We look forward to bringing you into the future of customer experience to explore new and revolutionary technologies. And, when you attend DevCon at CX18, you’ll even have a chance to create one. This year’s DevCon at CX18 not only gives Genesys developers more technical learning opportunities, it also features a hackathon.

There is so much to look forward to and you don’t have to wait; download the CX18 mobile app from the App Store or Google Play store now to begin engaging your fellow attendees, the Genesys team and, of course, our valuable partners. That’s right—the Partner Demo Battle returns to CX18.

Last year, Anana dominated at both events – in Indianapolis and Brussels. This year, contenders from all over the world will battle it out live in the Partner Pavilion for the honorable title of “AppFoundry App of the Year.” And we need your help to determine the best demonstration from 12 featured applications within the AppFoundry marketplace.

Before you head to Nashville, take a minute to familiarize yourself with the competition and come prepared for the Partner Demo Battle. Check out the competitors’ demo videos below and cast a vote for your favorite entry using the Genesys CX18 mobile app starting Monday April 30th.
