About Us

Founded in 2012-13, the ACEF program is organized by a team of professionals from India, Srilanka and UAE and is guided by the Advisory Members from Branding, Marketing and Creative Agencies based in India, US, Australia, Singapore, UAE and Srilanka. Our programs are focused on Customer Engagement Activities, Branding, Marketing, CSR, Rural Marketing, Properties (Hospitality & Real Estate), HR and are planned for India, Srilanka, GCC Continent and Asia Pacific Regions.

What is Our Goal?

ACEF provides savvy convenience industry marketers with information critical for understanding their target consumers. The Asia Pacific Customer Engagement Summit will feature in-depth discussions into the increasingly important "engagement" aspect of connection. It is one thing to know the customer and yet another to know how to engage each one of them. From traditional marketing methods to new and ever-changing viral marketing tactics, we will share strategies to capture sales from current customers and expand retailers' customer base among all generations. The most triumphant companies know that success is based upon aligning business strategies to meet the distinct needs of each targeted segment. If the customer wins, we all win.
