The annual award competition, which highlights the retail real estate industry’s most inventive marketing events, programs and technologies, honored Strategy+Style Marketing Group with a Silver MAXI award for its work on behalf of Vero Beach Outlets, a 329,000 square foot shopping center located on Florida’s Treasure Coast, which effectively used behaviorally and geographically-targeted digital marketing platforms as part of a limited-time promotion designed to drive sales at a newly expanded Restoration Hardware Outlet store.  Ultimately, Strategy+Style Marketing Group’s “Behavioral Targeting = Sales = Percentage Rent” initiative successfully added significant sales dollars to the shopping center’s annual Net Operating Income (NOI).

“Beyond developing overall annual strategies and executing innovative initiatives for our client partners, technology has allowed marketers such as us to effectively use geo-fencing and behavioral targeting to curate select targets as part of our campaigns. Strategy+Style Marketing Group prides itself in strategically identifying these untapped opportunities, crafting them into marketing efforts that achieve stellar bottom-line results,” said Strategy+Style Marketing Group Partner Karen E. Fluharty.  “We are honored to be recognized by our industry and colleagues again this year as a leader of groundbreaking retail marketing.”

ICSC honored national MAXI award winners on May 21 during a ceremony at RECon 2017, the world’s largest retail real estate convention held in Las Vegas.
