On The Road Again: Bazaarvoice Fuels Up Tour Bus for 2017 Inspire Event Series

Consumer-generated content roadshow brings digital marketers together for energizing day of learning and networking

AUSTIN, Texas, June 28, 2016 – Bazaarvoice, Inc. (Nasdaq: BV), the consumer-generated content solution provider creating the world’s smartest network of consumers, brands and retailers, today released the schedule for its 2017 Inspire series. Inspire, the company’s annual series of events focused on getting clients, agency partners, and other digital marketers engaged with exciting new ways to use consumer-generated content (CGC) to drive business value, will take place in 18 different cities across the country. During each day-long event, attendees will take a deep-dive into the Bazaarvoice network, learn the value CGC provides brands and retailers, engage with Bazaarvoice team members and connect with local industry peers.

“Bazaarvoice has always been attuned to our business needs, but attending Inspire truly brought the value the company places in nurturing strong relationships with every client to life,” said Crissa Youngblood, Marketing Director for Fat Tire Tours - Paris. “The Bazaarvoice platform is feature-rich, and Inspire provides a unique, hands-on opportunity for clients to explore its intricacies while learning tips and tricks from industry experts. I left last year’s event with more confidence about my Bazaarvoice program and a list of actionable insights to help propel Fat Tire Tours’ use of consumer-generated content forward.”

“As a company steadfastly focused on the client experience, we are constantly exploring ways to develop stronger relationships with our customers and ensure they realize the full value of their Bazaarvoice program,” said Sara Spivey, Chief Marketing Officer at Bazaarvoice. “Since launching Inspire two years ago, the client response has been overwhelming. It’s clear that our clients have an appetite to learn more about CGC’s potential, which is why this year’s Inspire series will be chock-full of refreshed programming.”
