In March of this year, Zoom’s business made major strides as their videoconferencing platform stepped in as the champion of keeping our busy work and social lives active during lockdown. Which makes it rather befitting that Zoom didn’t miss a beat hosting their largest conference of the year, Zoomtopia over – you guessed it – Zoom. This virtual user conference explored how essential video-first unified communications are to the rapidly evolving workplace. As a proud sponsor of Zoomtopia 2020, Poly demonstrated how a complete end-to-end portfolio of purpose-built technology for Zoom is critical to delivering a seamless experience. Here are a few highlights that attendees enjoyed this year:
INTRODUCING POLY SYNC FAMILY
It’s been amazing to see the partnership between Poly and Zoom continue to grow as we announced the Poly Sync Family. The family includes, the Zoom certified Poly Sync 20, the personal-sized USB/Bluetooth® smart speakerphone and portable speaker; the Poly Sync 40*, for flexible/huddle rooms, and the Poly Sync 60* for small to medium conference rooms. This year, the star of the show was the smallest member of the family – the Poly Sync 20, one of the first Zoom certified personal USB speakerphones. This Swiss Army Knife of a device has been thoughtfully designed for today’s professionals working in home and hybrid environments. This sleek and compact speaker was designed to for maximum portability and durability and is filled with smart features to keep conference calls simple while delivering remarkable audio for conference calls or music from anywhere.
During the show, we raffled off 30 Poly Sync 20s to some lucky attendees that connected with one of our Poly experts – score!
3D VIRTUAL SHOWCASE ROOMS
This gallery of short videos allowed attendees to envision how Poly solutions support Zoom Meetings, Zoom Rooms, and Zoom Phone. With organizations gradually returning to the office, Poly highlighted devices across our portfolio that are ideal for the Huddle Room, Board Room, Personal Workspace, and for Road Warriors. We also gifted the Poly Studio X30 – that’s not only ideal for huddle rooms but even home offices, to a lucky Zoomtopia attendee who will gain the benefits of a native Zoom experience on their next meeting.

LIVE BREAKOUT SESSIONS
This year, we teamed up with Zoom to focus in on two growing topics: Zoom Phone and Education. Zoom Phone is the latest addition to Zoom’s solution suite, so we’re excited to share how Poly VVX phones and the Poly Trio series play a role in the modern workplace.
With over 90+ breakout sessions, Poly made sure all 250+ presenters were heard clearly with the Calisto 5300.
WORK HARD, PLAY HARDER— INTRODUCING ONZOOM PLATFORM
Zoom continues to push the envelope when it comes to human connection. So, when they reached out to Poly to be part of their OnZoom platform launch, we were all in. OnZoom is a social platform that allows Zoom users to host and monetize fun events such as yoga, live performances, cooking shows, etc. via Zoom Meetings.
