Spacetime marketing – the art and science of targeting the right customer, at the right time and place – has arrived. With retail sales growth hard to find, gaining market share from rivals has never been more important. The connected consumer – shopping with smartphone in hand – is fundamentally changing the way retailers interact with their customers.

Today’s retailers are looking to smartphone data to understand and leverage shoppers’ movements in space and time through their stores. This information is transforming retail marketing. It’s driving innovation in a tightly contested economy. And it’s providing shoppers with an experience that’s customised to their preferences, needs and habits.

This webinar will explore the potential of the smartphone to change retail marketing, how the proliferation of data capture and analysis tools now make spacetime marketing another viable option for customer engagement, and what retailers can do to deliver time and space-appropriate campaigns to customers.


  • New connected consumer insights from original research
  • How location-based technologies are helping retailers deliver contextually relevant messaging to customers and build brand advocates
  • The value of spacetime marketing from practical case study examples.
