Yesterday, FIRST attended the Smarter Data conference in Auckland. Hosted by the Marketing Association, this one-day event explored how marketers today can leverage data to transform or grow their businesses. It featured a diverse line-up of speakers from varies industries sharing their stories, insights and riffing on what a data-driven future looks like for marketing professionals.

FIRST was proud to participate as an exhibitor and guest speaker at the 2015 Online Retailer New Zealand conference in the Aotea Centre last 22 October. The event was a great opportunity for pure-players and bricks-and-mortar retailers to learn how to keep up with their digital customers through Australian and local case studies, roundtable discussions and networking with technology partners and others in the retail industry.
