“Engagement thrives on relevancy and value to the user.  Beacons are one of the best ways we can assure delivery of relevant info—in right place and at right time.”
~ Ben West, Eventbase

“You need to educate your sponsors to (use beacons to) deliver relevant and valuable content to participants.”
~ Ben West, Eventbase

“As our users and customers better understand (Beacons), we as providers can provide a better experience for all.”
