1st European Contact Center Week from October 06th to 11th
For the European call center industry is an important economic factor for the whole of Europe. 3.2 million people work in 35,000 contact centers. The industry is growing by an average of 4.5 percent per year – unaffected by the crisis mood in many economies of the continent.
While economies such as Hungary or Romania grow almost explosively, a stable and steady growth has established itself in Germany, France, Switzerland and Belgium. More saturated, however, are the leading markets such as England and Sweden. These dynamics and the economic importance of customer dialogue should be made clear and visible to the public through national activities in this campaigns week.
So in France four events stands on: The most important is certainly the presentation of the “Palmes d’Or de la Relation Client”, the most important prize for customer relationship management. Flanked by the 24 hour “Customer relationship around the clock”, the presentations of the results of the “Customer Effort Score” and the study “Digital practices in Customer Relationship”.
As well the German Association CCV invites to the CCV Fall Conference to Berlin on October 6th and 7th. One of the highlights will be the presentation of the German CCV Quality Awards.
Other national associations like Spain with its RCCC Expo and the CRC ORO (Excellence Awards in Customer Relationships) will also use this week for an increased presence and media work.
