All Category One members of the Drinks Association receive the Ad Watch and Brand Watch platform and database as a Core Service.

The Drinks Association, along with partner Nielsen, is able to facilitate group training sessions at your office to assist in setting up dashboards and providing a greater understanding of the capabilities of the platform and the benefits it can provide to your organisation.

Subscribers to Ad Watch are also entitled to receive training. 

Over the past two months, Nielsen’s Ed Hickie and Mungo McCall have conducted training with the following Drinks Association member companies:

– Lion

– Moet Hennessy

– McWilliams Wines

– Asahi Premium Beverages

– Treasury Wine Estates

– Australian Vintage LtdFollowing member feedback from these interactive training sessions, Nielsen has added some additional pricing information into the database. It also commenced capturing ‘My Dan Murphy’s’ pricing last month, giving members even more real time in-market pricing detail. Nielsen is always interested in feedback from members to ensure the database is meeting your needs.
