Multi-sensory experiences are becoming increasingly important in driving brand engagement. Whilst sight is typically the most dominant sense in consumers, taste and smell should also be used to achieve the consumer engagement and brand recall that marketers want. At this year's Sensory Day, we’ll be exploring how companies can drive brand engagement by tapping into the power of multi-sensory consumer experiences.

As keynote speaker, Simon Harrop from Brand Sense will show you how to take a sensory approach to create emotionally compelling experiences for your customers. Building on this, Oakland and Leatherhead experts will demonstrate how brands have embraced the senses to create more engaging packaging as well as examine how the digital revolution is driving a deeper understanding of consumer responses. Interactive sessions will also enable you to step into your consumers’ shoes, taste and observe sugar reduced samples under the microscope, as well as experience an immersive environment.

Book now to unlock your brand’s potential through multi-sensory consumer experiences.

Sensory Day is exclusive to full members of Leatherhead Food Research.
