LBMA Presents Location Weekly: Google Buys Pointy; TourByLocal Nabs $25M

New chapter announcements, an exclusive interview from NRF, and some important birthday celebrations mark this edition of Location Weekly from the Location-Based Marketing Association.

We start off with TourByLocal getting $25M to match tourists with 4,000 guides in 162 countries, Albertsons launching Pinterest-Powered In-Store mobile recipes, and Google buying Pointy to boost brick&mortar retail.

After the Worldline interview from NRF, we continue with news from our two member companies: Gimbal giving mobile users control over their location data and Delta reducing travel stress with updated app features.
