WWDC19: Explore the Sanctuary for the Senses in the City on The Water

September 30 – October 3, 2019

Mexico City, Mexico – June 7, 2019 — Explore the Sanctuary for the Senses and monitor our progress at this year’s World Wide Developer Conference. Dive deep into the depths of Genero 3.20, share your ideas and discover our plans for Responsive Layout (RL) at the beach resort of Banyan Tree Mayakoba, Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

We knew it would be challenging to follow last year’s success, which is why we have spared no expense for this year’s event. Most of you loved the Cancùn venue and coastline, yet some of you were looking for a change.

That’s why this year we attempt to satisfy everyone by choosing the award-winning AAA Five Diamond luxury resort Banyan Tree Mayakoba.  Dance your soul to the Caribbean breeze and be swept away by pristine coastlines.

Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Cancùn, some 30 miles (48 Km) south of the airport along the Riviera Maya coastline, Mayakoba (The City on the Water) is a bounty of freshwater lagoons, mangroves, natural sugar sand beaches, dunes, and intricate coral reefs, offering a backdrop to some of the world’s best scuba diving. This City on the Water is nestled in a 1,600 acre (647 hectares) property that will cosset you in one of the world’s most breathtaking paradises.

Mayakoba is carefully conceived to protect and enhance the beauty of its native landscape, praising its connection to nature, culinary excellence, and the notion of well-being. Favouring a variety of private villas over skyscraper tower blocks, it reflects the harmony of the local cultural spirit and provides world-class sporting activities.  

The main conference kicks-off with a sumptuous welcome reception dinner on the lobby terrace in the early evening of Monday, September 30th and concludes at lunchtime on Thursday, October 3rd.


Day One

The conference opens on Tuesday morning, October 1st with a keynote speech and several morning plenary sessions covering vNext+ and the final Genero 3.20 release with its exciting ‘last-minute’ feature-set.  The presentation of vNext+ headlines features such as Studio Online and our first glimpse of Responsive Layout (RL).  In the afternoon, we have extended the customer experience presentations as you requested to give more time to explore the ‘challenges and solutions’ they faced to achieve their goals.

Day Two and Three

Wednesday morning sees the return of 12 breakout sessions – focus groups covering nine advanced technical topics and three business themes. In case you missed one, we will repeat the most popular breakouts on Thursday morning.


As with each year, you will have the opportunity to meet product specialists to privately discuss specific requests or issues in ‘one-on-one’ sessions. If you are interested in doing so, book your appointment early with your local support center. These slots are limited in number. Register for your one-on-one here.


To those of you seeking ‘hands-on’, deep-dive technical sessions, we open the event a day early and dedicate Monday to the much-lauded lab sessions; 4 in total, each of 3-hours in length covering: RESTful Web services, customization of Universal Rendering (UR) and the Genero Studio Forms Designer. These ‘Bring Your Own Laptop’ sessions are high in demand and need to be reserved in advance via your registration request. Remember, you’ll need to fly in on Sunday, September 29th to be there for the 9:00 AM Lab start. We’ll reserve you the extra night and dinner for that evening.


We’ve tried to build a little more free-time into this year’s agenda to enable more networking time. We are working on a fun program for Wednesday afternoon including golf (complete with crocodiles),  beach activities, and a bike trail. There is a super lagoon boat trip to explore too. Don’t forget to bring your beach clothes!

Remember, we pay for transport, the room, food, and the open-bar. All you pay for is your flight in and out of Cancùn airport (CUN). If you wish to extend your stay or invite your partner we can accommodate that request at special rates – see Extended Stay & Partner for more details.

This event is by ‘invitation-only’ and seats are limited. If you receive the opportunity to register, it is because we value your input. Take this chance to feedback your thoughts and experience – it will shape the future of our product direction.

Please confirm your reservation early to avoid disappointment.

See you soon.
