Loyalty360 Awards Finalist Presentations: B2B Customer Loyalty

Monday, May 8, 2023 - 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
The finalists competing in the 2023 Loyalty360 Awards will share details of their programs and strategies in fast-paced, 10-12 minute presentations. These presentations give attendees a chance to hear first-hand from the brands that are delivering experiences that set them apart from the competition in creating loyal customers. 

As a part of the award process, all registered conference attendees are eligible to vote for platinum, gold, silver, bronze and honorable mention (if applicable) for each category. Winners will be announced during the Loyalty360 Awards ceremony. 

Category Description - B2B Customer Loyalty
While not as common or top of mind as many traditional B2C loyalty initiatives, B2B programs are important for marketers to consider. Customers of these B2B programs may not be motivated by the same incentives as a B2C program member. Additionally, there likely are several other hurdles in a B2B purchase as compared to B2C, which requires these brands to think outside of the box when building a successful program. This category will showcase B2B brands that are taking a unique approach to building positive customer experiences and customer loyalty.
