Customer Engagement Summit 2016

IT’S BACK AND BIGGER THAN EVER – CLICK HERE TO book your place!

NEW VENUE | 900+ DELEGATES | 80+ SPEAKERS | CHIEF EXEC KEYNOTES | 4 SEMINAR HALLS | ROUNDTABLES

Our 2016 flagship Customer Engagement Summit is set to be our biggest and best yet – with more world class case studies than ever before, more delegates than ever before and a new, bigger venue.

And this year Europe’s largest event of its kind is being held on the same day as our inaugural Engage Awards – the only customer and employee engagement Awards.

This year’s Customer Engagement Summit is to be held on November 8 at the Park Plaza Westminster Hotel, one of the biggest and most iconic conference hotel venues in London and just across the river from the Houses of Parliament.

The  plenary presentations will be dominated by case studies from those at the very top of their organisations, and in keeping with the Engage Awards on the same evening, the theme will be one very close to our hearts – the business critical imperative of recognising that linking our people more closely to our customers is the key to world class customer experience, employee performance and profitability.
