Hi, so I attended the LiNC conference in 2010/2011?   Is this conference in October 3+4 the same conference where panel expert sessions are offered, special industry keynotes, "Lithy Awards" for new Lithium Communities...etc  I absolutely love all the tactical learning opportunities above but wondering if the rest of the conference topics have been scheduled yet.  There were evening events to network with other Lithium customers and employees as well.

 Hi @Jaime_Lee! Thanks for reaching out. CX Live is the new LiNC – same amazing experience, slightly different format.  October 3rd is pre-conference day, dedicated to workshops and certification courses. The conference will take place on October 4th.

While the full agenda is still in development, we will be focusing on these topics:

  • Customer use cases that drive business value & ROI through better CX
  • How to leverage data & analytics to drive smarter decisions
  • Strategy & best practices for creating a consistent CX across channels

Product experts will be available at the Lithium Genius bar to assist and answers questions.  We will also be hosting a CX Live Bash to network and to celebrate the Lithy award winners.  More to come!  Please let us know if you have any other questions.

I'd love to attend, but I sadly, I don't think it's in the budget currently. Any plans for Chicago?

@tomj Watch for news about regional events coming after CX Live. I think the closest to you, for the time being, will probably be New York.
