Location Gets Personal with iBeacons

  • Saturday - 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Chicago Ballroom VIII
  • #ona14ib

Hyper-accurate indoor location and the merging of digital and physical commerce is the next battleground for Apple, Google, Amazon and the other Internet giants. Apple has introduced this as iBeacons, but the underlying Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology is open to anyone and works across hundreds of current mobile devices. We'll discuss business and development lessons about how to develop consumer and advertiser-focused products while this ecosystem is still in its infancy.
