The Best Vendor-Neutral CX Events in 2020
Customer Experience tech events for 2020
Whenever businesses invest in a new method of growth for their organisation, one of the first things they need to consider is customer experience. After all, 89% of businesses are competing mainly on customer experience alone.
However, great CX isn’t just an item on your checklist that you need to think about when you’re installing new contact centre software or implementing a UC strategy. There is also technology out there that’s specifically designed to help you transform your CX approach and deliver more meaningful moments to customers in the years ahead.
So, where’s the best place to learn about this technology? At the right events of course!
Vendor-neutral customer experience technology events give today’s enterprise buyers, resellers and customers the chance to explore some of the latest innovations in customer satisfaction. Here are some of the conferences, sessions, and expos we think you should attend in 2020 if you want to get a head start on your CX initiative.
1. Call and Contact Centre Expo (UK and USA)
The Call and Contact Centre Expo is one of the biggest CX events in the world. Designed to celebrate customer engagement and facilitate the digital transformation strategies that lead to happier customers, this expo is a must-see for any business. With locations all across Europe and the US, the Call and Contact Centre Expo showcases the latest in customer experience technologies, strategies, and innovations.
Free tickets are available, and in 2019, the Call and Contact Centre Expo proved itself to be one of the biggest events in the industry with everything from state-of-the-art software demonstrations to endless speaker sessions and seminars from market leaders. Attendees heard from the likes of Daniel Ord, the founder of OmniTouch, Meghan Keough from 8×8, and John Finch of RingCentral.
2020’s event for London will be taking place on the 18th and 19th of March, at the ExCel Centre. We’d recommend ordering your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
2. Customer Contact Week (Various Locations)

3. UC Summit 2020 (Everywhere, Anywhere, and Any Time)
One of the biggest issues that any company will have with attending today’s customer experience seminars and events, is that finding the time to travel around the globe isn’t easy. There are excellent insights to be gained from today’s leading CX events, but what if you don’t have the money or time to fly around the world? That’s where the UC Summit 2020 comes in.
UC Summit 2020 is a world-leading virtual summit that showcases some of the world-leading solutions in everything from Unified Communications to Customer Experience. The summit launches in January, with a 5-day live event for people to attend in person, and a full on-demand experience online that lasts over 90 days in total.
If you want that incredible in-person experience that you can only get from going to a conference for yourself, then the UC Summit can offer that. However, we’re going beyond in-person moments too, with unlimited digital insights, a Keynote theatre, a launch pad for startups, and so much more. You can find out more at the UC Summit site here.
4. GITEX (Dubai)
GITEX is easily one of the best-known events in the world, not just for customer experience, but for unified communication technology too.
