The Future of CX Dinner

An exclusive dinner discussion for CX leaders from Chicago's fast growing firms

Hosted by [24], The Future of CX Dinner is set up to offer a relaxed and intimate forum for senior executives responsible for improving the customer experience within Chicago’s consumer-facing companies. Over dinner, we will be discussing and debating how what impacts messaging has on customer experience and how the industry is dealing with the shifting consumer expectations.

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve all the wealth of experience from the senior peers in the room.

You can find some pictures and videos of past events on our Instagram page: All discussions abide by the Chatham House Rule.

C-levels, VPs, Heads, Directors and other executives responsible for improving customer experience within consumer facing companies located in Chicago.

Attendance is by invitation only and is complimentary for those invited.

Messaging: The Future of Customer Experience

Customers clearly value the convenience of messaging apps and expect to be able to contact a business with the same ease and speed as they would when messaging a friend. The pressure is high for CX teams as brands keep getting compared to whatever experience the customer had with the last brand they interacted with.

The growth of AI chatbots, voice-activated assistants and messaging apps are just three of the trends driving the future of good customer experience, a future that’s much closer than we think. But are companies ready for these conversations?

  • Why is customer engagement set to become more conversational, rather than transactional?
  • How do organizations converse with their customers?
  • What are the benefits of embedding AI in customer experience?
  • What messaging apps should be a priority for your business?
