Turning physical spaces such as restaurants, transportation hubs and stadia into intelligent spaces is not a passing Internet of Things trend. Business and artificial intelligence – these have quickly become best practices of how to do business. Intelligent spaces are a means for companies to no longer guess who their target audience is and what they want, but rather have a CRM database full of detailed profiles of individual targets and clear behavioural outlines of how consumers interact with their brand online and offline.
This September, #TeamPurple will be speaking with companies across four continents in the space of two weeks on how to better understand consumers and engage them online and offline with targeted marketing tools. Some of the industries we will cover in our presentations, exhibits, and exclusive live demos are across retail, QSR, hospitality, hotel, smart city and service provider industries.
