Customer Contact Week (CCW) is the largest event of its kind, taking place every year in Las Vegas, NV. What started as Call Center Week in 1999, CCW rebranded in 2018 to focus on a more wholistic view of the industry, bringing customer care, CX, and contact center leaders together with their conference and expo combo. “If you have a customer, you belong at Customer Contact Week”.

This year’s event will take place June 20-23 at Caesars Forum, a beautiful new venue from Caesars Entertainment. The event organizers describe this years’ experience as an “endless buffet of content”, which sounds quite enticing. Let’s take a look at some of the content you can expect if you’re planning to attend.

Main Stage Headliners


Hear from a top content creator, Tyra Banks, Wednesday morning as CCW 2022’s first main stage headliner. Banks will be speaking on her experience building and nurturing customer relationships throughout her unique career as an executive producer, talk show host, and CEO of The Tyra Banks Company. She is also a big supporter of female-led or female-focused businesses and is known to invest in early-stage companies.

2Wednesday afternoon you’ll hear from Erin Andrews, an acclaimed sports broadcaster and entrepreneur. Andrews’ speech will focus on what it takes to out-perform and out-innovate in our competitive industry. Your customer contact and CX teams will be inspired by her experience with achievement and adversity, as her stories are powerful and relatable.

3The event will conclude with a session from Jason Alexander. Alexander is an award-winning actor, best known for his role as George Costanza on Seinfeld. His performance will be full of comedy, music, and conversation that promises to be both entertaining and insightful. What a great way to conclude what we expect will be a fulfilling event!
