Support Driven Expo Americas offers programming to meet you where you are in your Support career! Read on to learn more about some of the awesome SD Expo installments that you can look forward to.

Help Scout Conversation Corner

Support Driven Expo isn’t just about the great talks and workshops. There’s a ton of knowledge and experience inside your head and the heads of all your peers! One of the most valuable experiences at Expo is connecting with those peers to discuss the topics that are important to you right now.

The Conversation Corner at Expo Europe was such a success we’re bringing it back at Expo Americas. Our friends at Help Scout are facilitating and sponsoring the Conversation Corner. We’ll be choosing topics ahead of time and sharing them in the schedule so you can plan to attend conversation topics you’re most interested in — leaving a few time slots open for impromptu topic additions, of course. We’ll be tackling one broad subject area per hour; small and larger group conversations depending on attendance.

You can help to select the topics for Conversation Corner by filling in this short survey.


Did you know that SD Expo Americas offers panels alongside the talks and workshops?

On Thursday, Brian Levine of Bottle Cap Technology and Kristen Zuck of Automattic will be tackling elevating the role of customer support within your company. During Friday’s session, Craig Crisler of SupportNinja will cover the bridge between human support and AI in customer support.
