The Council will be discussing international launches from Australia to the rest of the world, and global launches coming to Australia.
Following the Council meetings, detailed white papers are published to download for free, highlighting all the noteworthy findings of the session, detailing case studies and offering unparalleled insight into the world of launch marketing.
The debut Australian session’s whitepaper homed in on several key points, including: the issue of transparency and internal alignment, the evolution of company and brand, personalisation, and more in the context of launch marketing.
The second whitepaper explored themes such as the differences between corporates and start-ups when it comes to planning and executing a launch, the role of PR in a launch plan, and how to ensure customer-centricity throughout the launch process.
