Conference Objectives!

Brand Equity! A Great Asset for Companies!!

Brand Equity, of late, is considered as an important asset for companies and every brand manager should devise a good strategy to increase his/her product’s brand equity over a period of time in order to make it memorable and sustainable.

Brand Equity! A Potential Tool for Sales Growth

Of course, brand equity is the most important asset of any brand and the organization. If properly focused, brand equity would serve as a great tool to improve the sales performance of a company. Most importantly, one should tailor customer opinions/views and their preferences in its business growth strategies. Yet another important aspect is to consciously communicate the emerging global trends in consumer preferences and how your company carefully incorporates the wishes and aspirations of the customers in its products and services.

Against this backdrop, the upcoming conference in Kuala Lumpur makes an attempt to achieve the following objectives.

a) Give a common platform and opportunity for marketing professionals, researchers and academicians to share their views and insights on contemporary developments in the field of marketing;

b) Encourage inter-disciplinary research works in marketing, global business, management and other topics in social science research; and

c) Offer networking opportunity for all the delegates and encourage cross-fertilization of new ideas in order to advance the field of marketing and other related disciplines.
