BANGKOK, April 24, 2018 — The 10th PATAcademy-HCD, under the theme ‘Online Video Marketing – How to create engaging online video campaigns for brand-building and sales’, takes place at the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Engagement Hub in Bangkok, Thailand on June 25-26, 2018.
Using interactive learning approaches and hands-on assignments, the latest programme from PATA examines the challenges and opportunities presented by video marketing and digital marketing campaigns.
PATA CEO Dr. Mario Hardy said, “Online video marketing is a powerful approach to promote your brand and grow your business. Consumers – young and old – are interacting with videos today more than ever. In 2018 and looking beyond, it’s essential for any business to be empowered with the know-how to boost and ramp up their video marketing strategy to connect with their audience. It is by far one of the best approaches to creating exposure for your brand while helping to drive conversions.”
The two-day workshop will empower participants with the knowledge and skills to create online videos effectively and efficiently, while building a strong digital brand – including understanding the importance of video in the digital marketing mix, making engaging video content, optimising your content for digital audiences, and designing a digital branding campaign that leverages video.
