Digital engagement is key amidst COVID-19 lockdown


April 22, 2020 | By Rupkatha B

As most countries globally are under lockdown, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, engagement – through digital platforms – is key for brands to stay relevant and top of mind among customers and communities.

Nakheel Mall, for example, recently allowed two drone racers to capture unique footage, offering its audience a glimpse of the shopping mall digitally, as a way of engagement.

From the world of leisure and entertainment, Disneyland Paris has launched a free platform called “Disneyland Paris at Home,” offering entertaining games, activities, videos and more to spark imagination, inspire creativity and share the magic from the comfort of home.
