Our proprietary solution was specifically developed to drive consumer engagement and revenue on-property with hyperlocal retailer offers.”
At the show, StepsAway will showcase its solution in Booth #LP2 and Haims will take the Launch Pad stage to discuss the market drivers and main highlights of the solution in a presentation titled, “Connecting Retailers’ Promotions to Shoppers’ Smartphones in the Mall,” on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 from 1:15 – 1:30 p.m.
