New Tech, Audiences & Channels:

The Shifting Landscape in Digital Brand Engagement

In an age where the browser is just one small channel amongst many, we're looking at how brands are revisiting consumer engagement in digital beyond traditional web.

We've put together some incredible stories for this session, where you'll learn how some of the leading travel and destination brands are rethinking their approach to audience engagement. Identifying new technology, new audiences and new channels is essential for brands to keep evolving with their customers.

We’ll be hearing three different perspectives, so brace yourselves for a full 90 minutes of deep insight and different perspectives.
