About the 2018 CSW Logo and Theme

This year’s Customer Service Week theme is Excellence Happens Here™. The theme recognizes that space where customers and service professionals come together. From the call center to the executive suite, from the loading dock to the home office, from behind the wheel to in front of a monitor. Where service happens is where Excellence Happens. Vibrant shades of lime, grape, and berry blend with a charming new take on the map pin, the universal sign for “here,” to bring this year’s Customer Service Week logo to life.
