11:00-11:40 a.m. Panel — Building the Marauders Map: Charting Consumer Behavior in the Real World
Over the past decade, data companies have focused on amassing information about local businesses, indexing the names and addresses of the millions of brick-and-mortar locations in the U.S. and the millions more abroad. But thanks to the explosion of GPS-enabled connected devices, there’s a chance to build a data set about the other side of the local marketplace: the consumer.

Introduction: Steven Jacobs, Deputy Editor, Street Fight
A world of connected devices — from smartphones and tablets to wi-fi routers and bluetooth beacons — are measuring the comings and goings of buyers and sellers locally, creating a new dataset that businesses, consumers and technology companies can use to create a better, more efficient local marketplace.

12:20-1:00 p.m. Panel — The Quantified Shelf and the Promise of Real-Time Inventory
Imagine a world in which every product and service sold locally was accessible online. It’s an advantage that e-commerce companies have wielded over local stores for years, and one that’s hampered brick-and-mortar stores from competing with the Amazon for online shoppers. That’s starting to change.

2:10-2:50 p.m. Panel — Online Behavior v. Offline Profiles
Given that accurate location is exposed far less than half of the time on mobile devices, how much does location really matter? Hyperlocal targeting means increased relevance, but it also means decreased ad spend. Add media buyers who are compensated as a percentage of total spend, and these contradictions increase. In this panel discussion, hear from leading practitioners who are grappling with the good, bad and the ugly of location targetig.

We live in an increasingly location-driven world, where data helps marketers understand consumer preferences, attitudes, and purchasing behavior down to neighborhood blocks.
