The Association for Data-driven Marketing and Advertising (ADMA) has announced the line-up for its Engage events in Sydney and Melbourne with senior executives from Airbnb, Nespresso, Spartez and BMO Financial group keynoting.

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.

Adela Messinger, head of retail operations, Nespresso (UK and Republic of Ireland),will explain how Nespresso has met customer expectations by adopting an omni-channel mindset and remaining adaptive to different markets.

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.

This year Engage has four conference streams examining how successful brands are using the four key pillars of technology, data, content and creativity to provide cohesive customer experiences.

Technology stream:

In the technology stream, Anthony Ho, head marketing of services for Mondelez (Australia), will share lessons from the company’s Mobile First incubator program; Ben Moir, director, wearable experiments and snepo research (Australia), will focus on how wearable technology is moving beyond the functional; and Simon Edwards, marketing analytical executive manager, Bankwest (Australia),will talk about reinforcing the foundations of effective end-user online experience to generate consumer insights.

Debate: who owns the customer experience?
