WAKEFIELD, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Customer experience (CX) professionals worldwide are invited to celebrate the very first CX Day on October 1 at local gatherings and online events. CX Day is a global celebration of companies and people who are delivering great experiences to customers, created by the Customer Experience Professionals Association (CXPA), the international non-profit organization created to guide and enhance the growing field of customer experience management.
“We hope that everyone in the CX field will find a way to join the party on CX Day, to applaud our progress and to share inspiration for the future. And, of course, to enjoy themselves!”
CX Day celebrates the rising importance of customer experience to companies, by highlighting the efforts of all customer experience professionals to raise the bar for achievement and innovation in the CX field. There are already CX Day in-person meetings scheduled in 20 cities across five countries: Canada, Finland, Norway, the UK and the U.S. These events will include speakers, breakout discussions, networking, food and more. There is no charge to attend a CX Day meeting, but advance registration is required.
"We came up with the idea of CX Day as a way to recognize all the terrific CX professionals whose hard work has lifted the discipline, and to celebrate the amazing innovations they've brought forward," said Bruce Temkin, CXPA Chairman and co-founder. "We hope that everyone in the CX field will find a way to join the party on CX Day, to applaud our progress and to share inspiration for the future. And, of course, to enjoy themselves!"
CX Day hopes to offers something for everyone. CX professionals who can't make it to a local celebration are invited to participate online. There is a free webinar with CXPA Chairman Temkin and Dan Hesse, CEO of Sprint Corporation, who will discuss the CEO's role in leading a customer experience transformational journey. Additionally, CX professionals can join in a series of online events throughout the day, including four Google+ Hangouts across global time zones and a Twitter Chat led by Ingrid Lindberg, Chief Experience Officer of Prime Therapeutics. Many companies are also planning to host their own in-house CX Day celebrations.
Another highlight of CX Day will be the announcement of the inaugural "CX Impact Awards," recognizing individuals who have made a significant impact in the field of customer experience management.
The CXPA has created the website CXDay.org as a resource to communicate all of the activities scheduled for CX Day. Clarabridge, Inc. and SDL are Platinum Sponsors of CX Day 2013.
