Attendees were treated to some truly unique experiences, including private guided tours of the world-famous Louvre Museum—home to the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and other masterpieces—and a gala dinner under the museum’s iconic pyramid. From a post-lunch, audience-led drum session to a flash mob in the Partner Showcase, every element of the two-day event lived up to its theme of “inspiring extraordinary experiences.”
In terms of the content itself, nearly every session touched on some facet of the customer experience and how marketers can deliver optimal engagement in today’s increasingly mobile and social world, including keynotes from Neolane CEO Stéphane Dehoche, Neolane Chief Product Officer Suresh Vittal, Don Peppers from Peppers & Rogers Group and Forrester Principal Analyst Shar VanBoskirk.
“Our goal was to make Neolane Evolution 2013 truly unique and memorable, so our global customers and partners would be inspired to do the same for their customers and prospects,” said Stéphane Dehoche, president and CEO, Neolane. “We wanted to provide an experience that transcended the traditional user conference and hosted our event at The Carrousel du Louvre to create an atmosphere that would awe and inspire. The keynotes, customer presentations and Neolane demonstrations conveyed the challenges marketers face today and provided best practices for leveraging Neolane’s conversational marketing technology to drive positive customer engagement and deliver more personalized experiences.”
