“We’re excited to partner with The Lionesque Group and MG2 to debut our Pop-Up Shop Analytics at NRF. As brands and retailers are finding creative ways to introduce their products via physical retail experiences, pop-up shops represent a flexible environment to engage directly with their customers,” said George Shaw, CEO and Founder of “​​The ability to implement deep analytics for pop-up shops and drive business results is a game-changer in today’s retail market. Our technology will enable brands and retailers to deliver personalized experiences that can increase customer loyalty and drive ROI.”

Powered by’s spatial intelligence technology and The Lionesque Group’s expertise in experiential retail, brands and retailers can now cost-effectively understand how their pop-up shop is performing through a variety of analytics such as:

  • Entrance and group sizes for measuring true sales conversion rates with POS Tie-In

  • Staffing optimization via insights around customer and staff interactions
  • Checkout queue and wait times

“Partnering with to create ‘Pop-up Shop Analytics’ is the next necessary evolution for the industry. The ability to tap into customer behavior and analyze that data will help drive how we use pop-up shops as a tool to better understand customer behaviors, in-store interactions, purchase intent, and utilize the store as a living lab to inform how we design the most successful physical retail experiences possible for our clients,” said Melissa Gonzalez, CEO and Founder of The Lionesque Group and Principal at MG2.

With an out-of-the-box install that takes less than a day,’s real-time analytics for pop-up shops are available starting in February.
