The European Customer Champion – EUROCC for short – will be awarded for the first time at the CCW 2022, the international exhibition and congress for innovative customer dialogue. The new award replaces the previous Cat award and offers plenty of scope for groundbreaking projects – including outside the DACH region. We are therefore looking forward to applications from all over Europe!
The expert jury will continue to sift through all applications received. Afterwards, six selected applicants will be given the opportunity of a live pitch on the large CCW stage – increasing your chances of winning! In addition to the jury, the audience will now also evaluate the six nominees. This means that you can once again highlight the aspects of your project that are particularly important to you at the venue, and convince another member of the jury.
In this article you will learn everything you need to know about your application for the title “European Customer Champion”. Take this opportunity and use your application to promote your customer service and advance your own career!

Submit a brief description of your project and the results achieved. Supplement this with the completed personal information form – you are already in the applicant pool.
Convince in the video call. All submitted projects will be examined and evaluated by the expert jury, consisting of DACH associations and previous winners, among others. To this end, the jury will clarify any outstanding questions via a virtual interview.
Be confident – the jury will then nominate the six most promising projects for the live presentation on the large CCW stage.

Cross your fingers – the audience will then vote on their favourites. The 3 best projects according to the jury and audience rating will be awarded the title “European Customer Champion” in their subject area at the end of the congress day.
