Why is focus on customer excellence so important? Because in a global, connected world in which venues, products and services are increasingly interchangeable and prices ever more transparent, the (memorable) customer experience often becomes the key differentiator. Customer Excellence pays off in general: customer retention is far less expensive than customer acquisition and great customer experience results in the reduction of (process) costs within the framework of complaint handling. Plus - it’s a profitable marketing strategy: Word-of-mouth advertising is the best kind of advertising that money can’t buy. In this session we will show you examples and approaches on how to set-up up a customer experience measurement program that will provide you with precise data on your customers and actionable insights for the definition of customer excellence measures which will be helping you to ensure sustainable business success with meeting organizers in companies and associations.
