The Best Voice First Events to Look Forward to in 2019

TL;DR Get ready and mark your calendars because the voice first events of 2019 will take you all around the world. Here’s our list of the conferences you should keep an eye out for. See you there!

The new year is upon us and we’re already making sure we have the best voice-first events in our calendars. Whether you are a developer, VUX designer, QA specialist, or simply curious about the voice-first industry, you’ll find there is much to gain by attending.

Conferences and events are a great way to connect with other voice-first enthusiasts, find resources for sharpening your skills and to keep up with the voice-first revolution. We’ve definitely taken advantage of that.

Last year we attended AlexaConf, Voice Summit 2018 and DigitalXChange – you can see John’s talk from Voice Summit with Robert Bruchhardt from Mercedes-Benz R&D North America here. This year, we’re starting at CES 2019 and are looking forward to more and more opportunities to witness how the voice first industry will grow this year. We’re also looking forward to connecting with our old pals that have been a part of this community from the beginning, and we’re excited to meet the new folks that have taken on the challenge of pioneering in this very young industry.

That’s why we’ve put together a short list of voice first events to keep an eye out for this year. Most of these have a registration fee but there are still plenty of Meetup groups and Webinars where you can join in the conversation for free all over the globe. Check it out:
