Frost & Sullivan Executive Mind Exchange
April 12-15, 2015
Pont Vedra Beach, Florida
This event is kept purposely small and geared towards executives. There’s an exhibit hall, but the organizers really emphasize networking over showcasing.
This is the kind of event where – if you’ve been participating properly – you’ve interacted with almost everyone at the show by the end of the 3 days. You’ll be sure to leave the event with new ideas and best practices for driving customer strategy.

This event provides industry professionals with an opportunity to sharpen their skills, network with peers, and learn first-hand about technology trends available to improve their contact centers.

Voice Biometrics Conference
May 4-5, 2015
New York City, New York
The Voice Biometrics Conference focuses on a narrow, but important, emerging technology: Voice-based Security and Authentication. This conference is organized by Dan Miller, principal of Opus Research (and member of our Top Analysts list).
In the past year, we’ve seen some very impressive deployments on this front. For example, USAA now allows its members to authenticate on its mobile app using facial recognition or voice-based verification (read more).
It’s becoming clear that multi-factor biometric authentication is essential to mobile commerce’s future. It’s the only technology on the horizon that can provide the secure, private and reliable authentication that is needed.
Call Center Week
June 15-19, 2015
Las Vegas, Nevada
This is the big mama event of the call center world. Call Center Week is one of the largest, most comprehensive call center events in the world. It brings together thousands of customer-focused executives to discuss innovation in a multi-channel environment.
