UC Awards 2021 is back

The UC Awards are back once again, bigger and better than ever. 

Since 2018, we’ve been running our digital celebration to commend and highlight some of the most incredible UC and Collaboration vendors in the world. 

We’re thrilled to be once again asking companies like yours to get involved and submit your applications to win the awards most-suited to your solutions.  

What’s more, we’re proud to say that we have a sensational guest co-host for 2021. Our chosen co-host is an award-winning presenter, journalist, and tech expert, as well as a published author! 

Are You Our Next Winner? 

For 2021, there are more opportunities to win than ever!  

Last year, our winners included market leaders like Eric Yuan, Vlad Shmunis, and CK Kannan. This year, we’re hoping to attract even more innovators to apply for old and new categories alike. Alongside our standard awards such as “Best CPaaS platform” and “Best UCaaS provider,” we’ve also updated our ceremony this year to some special 2021 categories.  

We’ll be looking at things like the “Best use of AI” and the “Best Work from Home product” to celebrate the changing communication landscape.  

As always, we’re not just celebrating companies but pioneering people too. We’re keen to see who will make the cut as our UC leader and Collaboration leader of the year 

Aside from new categories, 2021’s Award ceremony will also come with a new dedicated website, an updated attendee experience, improved benefits for every entrant, and so much more! Now’s the time to mark your calendar if you want to get involved!
