    Event Details

    User Generated Content (UGC) and social media are transforming the way we do marketing.

    Gone are the days when marketers controlled the communication and path between advertisement and consumer.

    Today's model is collaborative, collective, customised and shared. It’s a world in which the consumer is the creator, consumer and distributor of content.
