Several of LivePerson's healthcare, retail, software, and travel and hospitality customers presented their successes leveraging the company's technology across a range of powerful use cases.
"Our New York City gathering demonstrated the incredible demand for insights and education around the transformative power of Conversational AI. We're excited to resume these marquee events, which are proven differentiators that drive meaningful deal flow for our business by bringing the possibilities of AI to life through our top customers' success stories," said Rob LoCascio, founder and CEO of LivePerson. "We're extremely grateful to our team and customer speakers who delivered an exceptional experience befitting our storied Executive Community."
