FULL WEBINAR: The Future of Beacon Technology


In this webinar sponsored by NEC, Jonathan Brawn, Principal at Brawn Consulting and Ian Dallimore, Director of Digital Innovation and Sales Strategy for Lamar Advertising discuss the role of beacon technology in today and tomorrow’s world of advertising and how it will affect the future of digital signage and personalized marketing.

Brawn, a fan of Android devices and Microsoft Windows, seemed like a perfect co-panelist for Dallimore (an Apple guy) to generate discussion about everything from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) versus Classic Bluetooth, Big Brother’s handling of personal information and the danger of using technology for technology’s sake.

That said, they agreed on several points including but not limited to the benefits of current beacon tech capabilities like it being inherently mobile-centric, offering outreach that can extend beyond the sales floor and hitting the right person with the most relevant message at the right time and place.
