5 Reasons Why You Should Enter GCXA22

The latest edition of our awards is underway, and it's getting more prominence across the Gulf region. But we want to make sure that all our entrants know what makes Gulf Customer Experience Awards a premium event for eminent CX professionals.

If you're still not sure about attending, here are the top 5 reasons why you should enter the awards and get in the race for the accolades. Enjoy the read!

1. Getting recognised by the industry

Our awards judges are seasoned professionals renowned in their respective fields. They guarantee fair and objective scrutiny of each application we receive. This means that accepted initiatives indeed deserve to compete for the awards (because they have passed the strict scoring criteria for entering).

If you are shortlisted for the finals, it will be a clear sign that you have achieved results that are noteworthy and deserving of an accolade. In turn, you will get more recognition from top people in your industry, many of whom can become your future customers and partners.

2. More exposure across the region

Once we announce our finalists, we will spread the news about it via our newsletter and social media. Among our followers and subscribers are numerous leading CX professionals from the Gulf region, and they will be able to see your name among the shortlisted finalists.

You will also get a finalist's package with banners and other collateral that you can share on your social media. Besides this, we will send out a press release before the awards finals and after the ceremony, and you can also be featured in an interview for Customer Experience Magazine.

3. New business contacts at the event

Many of the presentations at our awards are open to spectators, which means that anyone interested can attend and watch. Those who attend your open presentation can learn more about your initiative and results and understand better what your company does to delight customers.

This is an excellent way to get the word across about your organisation and solidify your business image. When people see you "in action", it will increase your credibility and reputation - especially if you excel at the presentation.

4. Networking with the peers

Throughout the day of the Awards Ceremony, you will have a chance to attend CXTrendTalks sessions and panel discussions, as well as go to breakout rooms with other finalists, judges and guests.

This is a perfect opportunity to share your knowledge, insights, and ideas about customer experience and learn about the latest CX practices and trends. Our discussions and sessions always feature top CX experts from the region.

5. Celebrating your results

We believe that every successful organisation deserves to celebrate its top CX results on a grand scale. And awards are the best way to do that! Just reaching the closing ceremony is an exciting journey, not to mention the unique moment when you hear you've won.

But the feeling of being announced as a winner - in front of peers, judges and awards guests - is literally indescribable. Not many things can compare with it. So, why not celebrate your results? You deserve it.

See you at the awards!
