The conference programme is divided into four sessions: On Device; Driving Footfall; In Store; and The Future. The programme explains how retailers can put mobile to work at all stages of the customer journey.

Matthew Hopkinson, business development director at the Local Data Company, will kick off proceedings with a hard-hitting look at the state of the British High Street today, underlining why no retailer can afford to ignore the mobile channel.
