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.
