Place and insight

Not all places are created equal. By owning the most desirable places there is an opportunity to shift from transactional space booking to providing insights into shopper intellgience and engagement that helps brand owners achieve their commercial objectives.

Audience focussed

The business aims to bring together brands, place managers and creative agencies to deliver new opportunities to the high street. This mutually beneficial ecosystem connects brands with customers and creates meaningful experiences that help revitalise places.

The businesses existing name – BoConcepts – was no longer able to communicate the vision for the business and its promise to customers. A new name would be essential to taking a new offer to market.


We developed their proposition based on 'Location DNA'. This helps brands make sound investments decisions and to be in the right places at the right times to grow awareness and acquire new customers.
