You’ve heard the talk about Cincinnati AMA’s Ignite! 2017 Regional Conference on Customer Experience. We announced our full lineup of sizzling speakers and track sessions, as well as event partners passionate about CX.

But what’s in it for you? It’s a fair question, especially if you’re evaluating the cost and the time commitment.

Here are six reasons to register for Ignite! 2017 and join us on September 22 at the Cintas Center as we get fired up about Customer Experience.

1. Get in on a “learn-it-or-be-left-behind skillset” with world-class speakers

From insights and influence to innovation and advocacy, all marketing roads lead back to the customer journey. Ignite! 2017 is designed to help you get ahead, equipping you with a critical skillset and innovate ideas to ignite your customer experience and help your brand thrive.

But don’t just take our word for it! Attendee and CMO Tammy Nelson says it best:

“I’m so excited that the AMA is bringing world-class CX speakers to Cincinnati! With more than two-thirds of CMOs now responsible for Customer Experience, it is a learn-it-or-be-left-behind skillset to be embraced. And, since brands are built on the experiences customers have with a company, marketing and CX are a perfect marriage.”

Feeling restless, or like you’re in a rut? It happens to all of us.

4. Show initiative and impress your boss

Employers value initiative — attend Ignite! 2017 and demonstrate a commitment not only to your own professional development, but also to improving your brand’s customer experience. All of those new ideas? Bring them back to the office the next Monday and make an impression!

5. Lunch, happy hour, and goodie bags

What would a conference focused on customer experience be without a GREAT experience for attendees? Register for Ignite! 2017 and know you’re headed to a conference dedicated to giving you a valuable and FUN experience. Of course, that means not going hungry — you’ll have lunch while you learn — OR thirsty (did someone say happy hour?) We’ll also have goodie bag from our event partners!

6. Other surprises!

We can’t tell you what they are — or they wouldn’t be surprises! But we promise that even if you’ve read the Ignite! agenda top to bottom, we have some fun in store you’re not expecting, all designed to give YOU the best possible conference experience. 😉
