CX Marketing Summit

Every interaction that a customer has with a company, be it online or offline, changes their impression of the brand. For this reason, there has never been a more important time for the marketing function to ensure a great CX through each touchpoint of creating awareness, driving conversions, and keeping existing customers happy.

The CX Marketing Summit will take you on a journey to CX excellence, as we look at the increasing number of organisations who are combining the efforts of the customer and marketing departments to provide consistent messaging and further enhanced customer understanding and insights, which leads to tailored, personalised offerings that attract and retain a loyal customer base.

The day will provide a survival guide for CX as we discuss topics such as the power of personalisation, giving consumers the content that they want, what happens when a customer first design takes a backseat, the craft behind a successful marketing strategy, how customer insights can drive success, the importance of brand identity and more.

Case study presenters sharing their stories at the Summit are seeing a seamless CX  as a result of their own strategic efforts and, by joining them, you’ll be able to reap similar rewards.
