Westfield Marketing Director to Share his vision for Social, Local and Mobile Shopping

Westfield Marketing Director John Batistich will be sharing his vision on the future of the shopping experience at The Retail Show 2012 (March 20-21, Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre)


John sees the shopping experience of the future being a highly localised, social experience facilitated by consumer interface with retailers through their mobile devices.


Westfield has already begun to create such an experience with the early introduction of facebook check-ins.


"Facebook Places launches in Australia and Westfield quickly leverages the check-in service, to bridge the gap between its off and online offering to broaden reach.

Westfield has been quick to offer deals to shoppers via the newly launched Australian Facebook Places Check In Deals service.


When shoppers ‘check-in' at Westfield shopping centres they will receive discounts from participating retailers, including apparel retailer Cotton On (that recently launched its own e-commerce site) and jewellery-chain Angus & Coote.

In a statement Westfield Marketing General Manager John Batistich said, "Retail, and particularly the way we can now target shoppers with special deals and discounts, has changed dramatically over the past decade. With tools such as Facebook Check In Deals we're now able to communicate to our shoppers in relevant and localised ways." read more here
