Webinar Recap: This Week in Social Distancing – June 11, 2020

Thursday, June 11, 2020 11AM PT

Since our last webinar, a lot has changed. Most of the country has lifted Stay at Home orders and many are using a Phased Approach to opening Non-Essential businesses. While the debate over whether this State or date has flatten the curve enough to resume activity goes back and further, one thing is for certain: businesses have shifted their focus from survival to Recovery. 

In the past few weeks, we’ve provided a glimpse as to how businesses can use mobile data to start their Recovery planning efforts. This week, we’re launching a new product, UberMedia’s COVID-19 Recovery Insights solution. This solution updates 30 business, tourism, and market metrics daily for organizations of all sizes to develop strategies aimed at recovering from the coronavirus pandemic.

In this week’s webinar, we provide an update on how consumer behavior in Georgia and other States has shifted since reopening and we’ll showcase how the metrics available via COVID-19 Recovery Insights can be used to analyze actual examples of shopping centers that have been impacted differently from the pandemic.

Our three study locations for this week’s webinar will include shopping centers that have been impacted differently from the pandemic: a shopping center with a grocery store anchor, an average strip mall, and a tourist destination mall. While these shopping centers have all experienced changes as a result of the pandemic, the nature of their offerings has resulted in measurable and significant changes to the behaviors of their specific customers.

Our research is powered by de-identified & aggregated location insights from hundreds of millions of devices that have opted into sharing their location data.
