It’s time for round five of Magento Innovations Lab! We’ve been so inspired by the Innovations Lab submissions from our global community over the past four rounds! And how awesome were the Innovators at the first Commerce Sneaks session at Imagine 2019 in Las Vegas?!  

Once again, we’re looking for early stage, experimental, bleeding edge implementations of emerging technologies on the Magento platform. Anything that enhances and improves the customer experience—either directly or indirectly. And don’t forget opportunities with Adobe Experience Cloud and Adobe Creative Cloud.

For this round, we will also be incorporating Innovations Lab into Commerce Sneaks at MagentoLive Europe 2019. As we did at Imagine, we will continue to build on Adobe’s rich heritage of showcasing innovations on the keynote stage through short demos that provide an inspiring and entertaining look into future technologies.

Here are the details: A select number of innovations from this round will have the opportunity to present their solution LIVE on the keynote stage at MagentoLive Europe 2019 in Amsterdam, October 22-23. Additionally, we may be spotlight innovations from previous rounds to also present onstage. (More details on that selection process to come.)

We want to know what you’re working on. And we want to see it in action. It can be alpha, beta, wherever you are in the iteration process, but it needs to be successfully demonstrated in a live demo or production instance.

What Qualifies?

  • Must be built on Magento 2

  • Must be customer/shopper focused

  • Submissions must be shown through an actual implementation (no vaporware)

    • Must exist in a live demo or production instance

  • Solution must be exclusive to the Magento platform

  • Solution must not be fully productized or commercialized in the form of a commercial extension or SaaS offering

  • Submissions may be highly customized, one-off, merchant-specific examples

*Innovations selected for Commerce Sneaks will receive one (1) complimentary full conference pass for MagentoLive Europe 2019 and must be available:

  • For remote rehearsals the week of October 14

  • Onsite rehearsals at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Conference Center, on or around October 20-22

  • To present live at MagentoLive Europe 2019, October 22-23 in Amsterdam

The Round Five submission window is open Monday, June 17–Sunday, September 1, 2019.

  • Official Rules can be reviewed here.  

  • Submit your innovation using this form

Get Started!

A maximum of eight (8) Innovators will be selected this round, with a handful invited to present live onstage as part of Commerce Sneaks at MagentoLive Europe, October 22-23 in Amsterdam. All selected innovations will be featured in a variety of online and offline formats, including an online Innovations Showcase. These individuals or groups will receive well-deserved recognition and accolades from the Magento ecosystem, as well as exposure to new potential opportunities.
