      2. Sponsors Showcasing the Future of Support

      If you have been in support for more than a few years, you can appreciate the impact social has had on the profession.

      Assisting customers through Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms was practically unheard of 15 years ago. Fast forward to 2018, a large chunk of B2C (and some B2B) companies allow customers to seek help through social channels.

      The industry took a more than a decade to come to terms with social. The next seismic shift—powered by AI, integration, and host of other technologies—is not going to take that long.
