For the past three years, the Australasian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) has invited universities to participate in the AACS Convenience Innovation Challenge.
This year AACS invited students to tackle the question: “Drawing on local and overseas examples, what innovation/s should be applied in our market to enhance the convenience experience, to meet future needs and to increase profitable sales?”
A team of QUT School of Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations undergraduate students have taken out first place in the 2016 Australasian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) Innovation Challenge for the third consecutive year.
Kate Morris, Justin Riley, Tom Craddock, and Nicholas McCray, competed against teams from leading Australian universities to pitch innovative solutions for enhancing the consumer’s convenience experience.
Runners up this year were Clarice Huston and Huong Thu Nguyen – both students at Monash University in Melbourne.
Congratulations to all winners on a great effort this year. Details of the 2017 Challenge will be announced soon.
