The opportunity to learn from best-in-class CX deployments, insight on the latest of Internet of Things and how best to build the customer experience are just three of nearly a dozen reasons to attend the upcoming ICX Summit.
The annual event, taking place June 5-7 in Dallas, draws highly-respected speakers and a robust audience hungry to network, listen to company leaders deploying CX technologies and gain deep insight on emerging trends and new strategies.
The annual event is in partnership with the Interactive Customer Experience (ICX) Association and Networld Media Group, parent company of Retail Customer Experience.
"I have people come up to me all the time at some of the bigger shows and tell me how much they look forward to the ICX Summit," ICX Association Managing Director Christopher Hall told Retail Customer Experience.
Hall noted the event presents a golden opportunity to learn from peers about the most innovative, leading-edge technology deployments in the marketplace.
"The big shows have their value, obviously, and the summit isn't aimed at competing with any of them. But they also can be a bit overwhelming, and the opportunities for longer, more engaged face-to-face conversations are pretty limited. The summit, though, is smaller and more intimate by design. Its main goal is to facilitate both education and networking in a setting that encourages attendees to actually engage with and get to know one another," added Hall.
Morten Gotterup, SVP, Westfield Brand Ventures, kicks off the three-day summit with a keynote on best-in-class customer experience. The session will include examples from various sectors and how retailers can apply those principles to their business.
The state of IoT is also on second day's sessions agenda. Panelists include Dickey’s Barbecue VP of IT and Development Paul Suarez, and the focus will be a discussion the intersection of CX and IoT.
Crafting a rewarding customer experience is the focus of a panel that day.
The session which will focus on how to move from a simple transactional experience to an experiential experience, rising above the price-only aspect. It will be moderated by Mason Page, SVP of strategy and client services, Reflect, and the panel includes JGA Chairman Ken Nisch.
