Brands like Express and Red Lion Hotels are leading the charge in creating exceptional customer experiences and engaging customers through personalized, omnichannel strategies.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 28, 2014
In a time when it is increasingly easy for companies to use digital technologies as a crutch rather than a tool, providing memorable, sustained experiences for the customer is critical for driving loyalty.
At the 4th annual Engagement & Experience Expo, Express and Red Lion Hotels will present distinct sessions on building customer experience at a thriving hotel corporation and an iconic fashion brand, respectively.
The session presented by Red Lion Hotels, titled, “Guests Are Forced to Earn Our Loyalty: What’s Wrong with This Picture?” will explore the company’s transition from an archaic points-based program, to a more fluid program that recognizes guests as individuals and perpetually rewards them with surprises and delights. The session will give insight into the makings of this revolutionary rewards system, which does not give customer entitlements based on a rigid, tiered rewards structure. By rewarding customers on a more continual and personalized basis, Red Lion Hotels makes the customer experience the focal point – not the loyalty points.
For some brands, more attention is given to omnichannel strategies for narrow demographics. Express, the iconic fashion brand for Millennials, and InMoment, will present a session titled, “Express on the Role of Customers in Omnichannel Strategy.” In this session, attendees will learn how Express tailors its brand experience to a digitally savvy generation of shoppers, carefully finding the balance in level of personalization offered. Additionally, the session will explore how an omnichannel customer strategy can uncover pain points, and help companies listen to the true needs of consumers.
“We are incredibly thrilled to have Express and Red Lion Hotels present at the 4th annual Engagement & Experience Expo,” shared Erin Raese, President and COO, Loyalty360−The Loyalty Marketers’ Association, said. “Brands like Express and Red Lion Hotels are leading the charge in creating exceptional customer experiences and engaging customers through personalized, omnichannel strategies. Attendees are sure to walk away with invaluable insight from these esteemed brands.”
