Held during 8 - 9 February 2021, this international conference was hosted by ASPIKOM, a premier association of communication science academics in Indonesia. With the theme “Advancement of Engineering, Applied Sciences and Interdisciplinary Research for Sustainable Communication Development”, the Conference aims to create sustainable communication among communication scholars and advance the scholarly study of communication by encouraging and facilitating academics in academic research.

A joint research project with Universitas Bunda Mulia Jakarta, Indonesia, the study examines the effectiveness of advertising, internet marketing and sales promotion of Quick Response Code Indonesian Standard (QRIS) in developing brand awareness among Wirausaha UMKM Indonesia’s community.
