For customer-focused people who are:

  • Customer Support managers
  • Customer Support agents
  • Customer Success managers
  • Product managers

New for 2014! We’re having not one but two tracks of talks: one for customer support & success topics and another for product management.

Why you should come to UserConf

UserConf is the only conference of its kind, built to bring education and insight to people working in customer support and community management.

We even think founders and CEOs of companies will benefit, as long as customer support is your passion and learning how to offer better support is your goal. We think caring for and retaining customers is big business.

We think customer support is just as important as sales and marketing. We tried to find a conference that reflected these values. We couldn't. So we created UserConf, a conference for people like us.


You do not want to miss these incredibly good-looking speakers!

Who we are


If you’re asking who actually decided to pull this event together, that’d be the fine folks at UserVoice and CoSupport. Not a customer? No sweat. This event is for you too. We hope you’ll learn more about both companies, but this conference isn’t one of those long product infomercials. We won’t pitch you, bro.
