Features & Benefits


Our 2018 agenda features comprehensive tracks to drill down on your hottest topics based on your role, experience level and key focus.


2018 Tracks

Track A: Customer Strategy
This track examines how to build a customer strategy whether customers are consumers or businesses or whether delivery is direct or indirect. We will then explore how to measure, govern and architect technology to support that strategy.

Track B: Customer Data and Analytics
Sessions in this track cover the key elements organizations need to include in their customer experience analytics strategies. Compelling customer experiences increasingly rely on data and analytics. Identifying and collecting the necessary data, interpreting it to understand customer expectations, and using it to design and deliver interactions that achieve both the customer’s and organization’s objectives requires increasingly sophisticated strategies and technologies.

Track C: Contact Channel Renovation
This track discusses how to improve the existing contact channels such as contact center, website, sales, social media, etc. through which the strategic CX is delivered.  It is essential to drastically renovate the existing channels by making best use of the modern digital technologies from the customers’ point of view, rather than to follow the traditional ideas in order to provide a ‘far-out’ CX that leads to differentiation.

Hot Topics to be Covered

  • Develop a CX strategy to deliver sustainable competitive differentiation
  • Improve your leadership skills to help drive CX improvements
  • Identify metrics to measure and prove the success of CX projects
  • Understand technology, business and societal trends that will impact on customer engagement
  • Create seamless multichannel customer experiences to drive better engagement
