This year, ADMA has secured 21 of the world’s most innovative global brands leading the way in customer engagement with experts sharing their experience across the travel, retail, finance, wine/spirits, wearable tech, home electronics and healthcare industries.

Engage takes place at Crown Promenade in Melbourne on Monday 24 November and Luna Park in Sydney on Wednesday 26 November 2014.

“Consumers today are seeking a seamless, personalised experience across all touch points and have high expectations that brands will deliver. As a result, having a successful customer engagement strategy has never been more important,” said Jodie Sangster, ADMA CEO.

The four keynotes are:

Roger Foisy, head of email marketing for Airbnb (USA), will discuss how Airbnb has redefined customer experience across the globe.

Gayle Ramsay, vice president customer analytics, BMO Financial Group (Canada), will define the customer experience journey in the age of the empowered customer, looking at managing complex multichannel partner environments and data strategies.
