On Tuesday night, July 8th, we hosted an intimate unveiling of Convo Lights in DC. We could not wait to share with the community our latest innovation which we believed would put the experience of receiving calls on a whole new level! We had huge grins on our faces (and butterflies in our stomaches) as we set up for the unveiling and our wonderful caterer, Chef Matthew O’Varanese, prepared his appetizers and wine.
Not only was the event to unveil Convo Lights, it was also to celebrate our 5-year milestone. It has been one heck of a ride, none of which would be at all possible without the support of our community, so we were grateful that they came out to celebrate with us that night.
After the guests had their fill of finger foods and mingled sufficiently, the unveiling began. The show started with Wayne Betts, Jr. reminiscing on Convo’s journey thus far, which led to this question: What is our future? Our answer was Convo Lights. This brand new feature, which incorporates Philips Hue technology, creates a seamless call experience that is integrated within your home and workspace. Convo Lights is smart technology that you can use to customize incoming calls with colors of your choosing and decide where you want the lights to brighten up in your house and workspace.
The best part of the night was when we got to see the reaction to Convo Lights firsthand!
We had a wonderful night. The positive support that we received, from the people at the event and from the response on Social Media, is what drives us to always challenge ourselves in improving the overall VRS experience, for you and us both.
We also want to thank The Signing Group for making the event at Wonder Bread Factory possible and to announce an exciting new partnership!
