Bring on the hoagies and cheesesteaks! We're heading to Philadelphia on April 10. 

GoCanvas was recently selected as one of nine finalists to demo at Phorum, an annual technology strategy conference that brings together some of the nation's top tech strategists, experts and solutions each year in Philadelphia.

The theme of this year's event is increasing customer engagement in a digital world. We're incredibly excited about this honor of being named a finalist for the Demo Pit, along with other companies that help organizations better engage with employees, customers, partners and suppliers. We'll also have a little friendly competition with these companies – one of the finalists will receive the “Best in Show” honor.
