Airship Announces Initial Cities for Its 2019 Customer Engagement Forum Series

Sponsored by Businesswire

Customer engagement company Airship
today announced May and June dates and locations for its 2019
Customer Engagement Forum
, a year-long global event series. These
interactive sessions feature leaders from many of the world’s leading
brands discussing their plans and practices for customer engagement (CX)
in a digital world — arming marketers with proven strategies, research
and techniques to connect with customers in smarter, faster, and more
effective ways.

Dubbed ELEVATE, the educational series will kick-off in Santa
on May 21, 2019 and San
on May 30, 2019. In June, the forum series will come to Paris,
, Amsterdam
and London.
Seats are limited; those interested in attending should reserve their
spot using the city-specific links above. Additional cities and dates
will be announced later this year.

Featuring a unique collection of speakers in each city, the series will
focus on the growing focus on customer experience (CX) as the key driver
of many companies’ growth and competitive strategies. Among topics such
as CX best practices and innovation, the program will also include a
discussion of building a business case for the value of better customer
experience (CX).

According to Gartner, “Today, slightly more than two-thirds of marketers
responsible for CX say their companies compete on the basis of CX. In
two years, this expectation rises even further, with 81% of respondents
anticipating their companies will do so.” (Gartner, Customer Experience
in Marketing Survey 2017: Greater Expectations, Greater Challenges,
Augie Ray, Jane-Anne Mennella, Simon Yates, Refreshed April 9, 2019,
Published 5 October 2017).

Customer Engagement Forum attendees will gain a sharper understanding of
what’s at stake when it comes to getting customer engagement right —
learning about the CX trends experts are watching, as well as the CX
tech stack and common team structures. Beyond a notebook full of ideas
to leapfrog the competition and crush their KPIs, attendees will gain
stats to build a business case for the value of better CX to grow their
budgets and their careers.

“Forrester analyzed the correlation between CX quality and revenue
growth for companies in five industries … companies with superior CX
grew revenues five times faster on average than their competitors with
inferior CX. And this is a global phenomenon” (Forrester Research, Inc.,
“Improving CX Through Business Discipline Drives Growth,” June 19, 2017;
Updated March 26, 2018).

Companies speaking at Customer Engagement Forum events include
AccuWeather, AMC Theatres, Expensify, Footlocker, France TV, GSN Games,
Tribune Publishing, Turner Sports and Zillow, with more to come.

“Today’s fastest-growing brands separate themselves from the pack by
providing unique experiences that deliver surprising convenience and
delight to their customers,” said Mike Stone, SVP of Marketing, Airship.
“The Airship Customer Engagement Forum provides marketers an incredible
opportunity to learn successful CX strategies from leading brands, as
well as the programs and tactics to put them into place.”
