The 11 Best Customer Success Conferences of 2024

Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, said it beautifully: “Work is going to fill a large part of your life. The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.”

Good work, especially in the Customer Success space, requires integrity, motivation, and empathy. But to do great work, whether you’re a CSM, leader, or VP, you’ll need…

  • Tried-and-true expertise from years of experience
  • Meaningful connections with other leaders in the field
  • A place to bounce ideas around and discover innovative strategies

One of the best ways to go from good to great in your CS role (and really, any role) is to seek out learning and growth opportunities in the form of conferences. 

Well, we’ve got good news: 2024 has a strong lineup of Customer Success conferences. Read on to see which Customer Success conferences we’re keeping an eye on in 2024, and be sure to visit Vitally's events page to see where we'll be next.

#9. The CS100 Summit

The CS100 Summit Customer Success Leadership Conference is a top-rated annual event hosted by ClientSuccess. The VP of Customer Success at G2 has this to say about it: 

“Having been in customer success for years, I have been tempted with the stupid thought that there aren’t any good, new ideas to improve our team’s and customers’ experience. CS100 shattered that thought, and I’m now sifting through my pages of notes, deciding what new ideas to test first.”

Here’s a promo video they created a couple of years ago to showcase their engaging speakers and out-of-the-ordinary networking excursions, including ziplining and horseback riding:

Who Should Attend?

The CS100 Summit offers a mix of “high-level strategy discussions with real-world applications” to give Customer Success leaders and practitioners a place to ask questions, learn from each other, and enhance their craft. In short, anyone who interacts with customers or leads a team of people who regularly manage customers is welcome.

When and Where Will the CS100 Summit Happen?

While ClientSuccess hasn’t announced their 2024 dates quite yet, we expect this 7th annual conference to happen in the fall, as 2023’s was in late September.

In terms of “where,” all summits since 2017 have happened at the Sundance Mountain Resort in Sundance, Utah, so we expect that to be the case in 2024, too.

Pulse 2024 will be Gainsight’s 11th annual conference. “Isn’t Gainsight a Vitally competitor?” Yep, they are… but they throw a mean conference, and we’d be remiss not to highlight that. 

Pulse 2023 event was all about becoming CS professionals who are more “durable, resilient, and adaptable.” They offered 72 sessions within eight tracks, and even sprinkled in fun elements like puppies, parties, fake mustaches, and costumes. Here’s the latest recap on the Pulse website:

Pulse is for Customer Success Professionals of all levels of experience. Last year’s website offers this description of their ideal attendee profile:
