What are the Awards?

Now in its fourth edition, the Gulf Customer Experience Awards are set to be bigger and better than ever.

The Gulf Customer Experience Awards recognise those inspiring organisations who are delivering an outstanding customer experience across the region. The Awards Finals and Ceremony take place on one day, on 22nd January 2019 in Dubai.

Phenomenal Value

During the finals on 22nd January over 100 Finalist presentations will be scored by the judges in what will be a large gathering of CX best practice in one place. Each of the judging rooms is set out for spectators and many of the presenters will open their sessions to others to watch and learn. If you are attending the awards ceremony it means you can also attend the finals and watch the presentations in the daytime. No other conference or event offers anywhere near this kind of value for money.
