To celebrate Acquia’s rapid growth into Asia this year, we’re thrilled to be able to host Acquia Engage Asia Pacific 2019 – an one-day event specifically for our friends across Asia Pacific and Japan. Taking place in The Glasshouse in Melbourne, Australia, Acquia Engage APAC is set to offer our local Acquia community a valuable opportunity to share their insights, projects and future dreams for delivering best-in-class digital experiences.
6 Reasons to Attend Acquia Engage APAC 2019
Here are just a few reasons to attend (as if you really needed them) …
1. Listen and Learn
Marketing events are a dollar a dozen, nowadays; but there is only one APAC event devoted to the technical and strategic growth opportunities to be gained through open source and the Acquia Platform. Acquia Engage APAC is your chance to hear how real brands, such as Audi Australia, Football Federation Australia and MediaCorp, are developing relevant, highly personalised customer experiences using DXP. Check out our exciting agenda here.
2. Get Inspired
Don’t be fooled – just because Acquia Engage APAC is a regional event, doesn’t mean we’re skimping on the calibre of our speakers. With keynotes from Acquia’s new Chief Executive Officer Mike Sullivan and inspirational Chief Marketing Officer Lynne Capozzi (flying in from the U.S.), our lineup is a who’s who of some of the brightest minds in the Acquia community. Discover the full speaker list here.
With more than 250 delegates due to attend the conference from across the region, Acquia Engage APAC is also a rare and hugely valuable chance to rub elbows with forward-thinking cross-industry experts – from government to consumer brands, digital agencies and everything in between.
4. Train Your Team
Acquia Engage APAC is the perfect learning environment for your team, with a practical balance between marketing strategy and technical sessions. We’ve even split the conference tracks into three separate topic areas – Build, Share and Learn – to make it easier than ever to identify the right tracks for your needs and get the most out of the day. Get smart and leave enlightened on how to use the tools and techniques that make a difference.
5. Have a Good Time
Life’s short, so don’t forget to allow time in your busy conference schedule to get out and about and enjoy Melbourne – Australia’s culture capital and foodie’s paradise. Take a minute after hours with fellow conference attendees at any number of amazing restaurants around Melbourne or, if you’re flying internationally for the conference, why not add a couple of extra days to your visit to take it all in.
