Looking Forward to Avaya Engage

Avaya Engage is one of the most compelling events of the year, hosted by leading communications company Avaya, and the IAUG (International Avaya User’s Group). Recognised by many as the “must attend” communications event for those interested in digital transformation and communication experience, Avaya delivers everything from general workshops to inspirational speakers and more.

This year, we’re thrilled to be travelling to the stunning city of Austin, Texas to discover the insights that Avaya has to offer in this culture-rich locale. Avaya is well-known for a commitment to ongoing innovation, so if you don’t already have tickets, we recommend that you sign up now, and join us at this phenomenal event.
