COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The strength of ICMI Contact Center Expo & Conference in San Diego, CA (May 6-9, 2014), a world-class, international forum for contact center professionals, continues to impress industry insiders.

  • 125+ speakers, with celebrity keynotes from Bill Rancic and Matt Dixon
  • A sold out exhibit floor with exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies and products

"It's an exciting year for ICMI's Contact Center Expo & Conference, the historic turnout is due in part to the caliber of speakers we have in this year's program," said Patty Caron, ICMI's event manager.

Five Reasons for Strong Growth

Over the past thirty years, ICMI has built the annual Contact Center Expo & Conference into a powerhouse of education and networking for customer management professionals. The vendor-neutral forum regularly attracts attendees who are seeking to improve operations, empower employees and enhance customer loyalty.

But the enormous popularity of this year's event may, in part, be due to the unique opportunities that ICMI has added to the agenda.  

In addition to 60+ sessions and case studies, attendees can opt-in to:  

  • Six contact center tours, including a morning at San Diego Padres Petco Park
  • A breakfast roundtable with experts such as the SVP of Wells Fargo, a VP for Cars.com or an AVP from OppenheimerFunds
  • Eight half-day workshops with industry experts
  • Two new full-day training sessions (Small Contact Center & Contact Center Metrics)
  • A dynamic expo floor with new vendors and cutting-edge technologies
  • A San Diego Padres game in Petco Park
  • A celebratory Awards Dinner

"Attendees often tell us their decision to attend Contact Center Expo & Conference is the robust program and valuable experiences we offer," Caron noted. "ICMI is dedicated to developing exciting, hands-on events with real-world applications."
