Beacons, mPay And The Augmented Consumer

Waiting for the next generation of technology to revolutionize the retail shopping experience? Too late! Your customers got there first. The coming wave of in-store beacons, aisle sensors, virtual and augmented reality, super-powered mobile payment and mobilized buy buttons are just playing catch-up with Consumer 2.0. She is better-informed than your own salesforce, activating the aisles with her own ways of "leveraging mobile" and unafraid of shopping virtually.

This is where marketing meets machine. At IoT: Shopping we try to look past the glare of bright shiny objects to explore how retailers, manufacturers and their agencies will need to make an Internet of Things make a real difference in customers' lives. Shopper marketing is the new hot point where bricks and mortar gets reimagined as data and experience.  

At MediaPost's inaugural IoT: Shopping we put the shopper technology revolution in its place - at the service of an augmented consumer - where marketing and technology truly meet. This is where the emerging arts of shopper marketing become critical to shaping a new retail experience. How will beacons enrich both retailer understanding of shoppers and consumers' experience in the store? Where can virtual and augmented reality tech really add value, not just thrills? We know what product/aisle sensors can tell retailers about their shelves, but what advantage do they give the customer? How do marketers solve for consumer disinterest in m-payment. But most of all, how will this new web of data cast off from an in-store Internet of Things make life and shopping better for consumers who are already more digitized, connected and tech savvy than the retailer itself?
