Measuring Ad Attribution: Aislelabs and Chicago's Navy Pier Announce Partnership

Navy Pier will utilize Aislelabs to conduct digital advertising attribution and measure online-to-offline conversion.

Aislelabs has been selected by Chicago's Navy Pier as the vendor to deliver digital advertising attribution and online-to-offline advertising conversion. Navy Pier, located on Chicago’s beautiful lakefront, is considered one of the most important civic landmarks in the United States and is one of the top-visited destinations for leisure and culture in the world. 

Navy Pier has partnered with Aislelabs, a Toronto-based technology company, to provide a unique way to measure online-to-offline advertising conversion. Using their enterprise-grade technology platform, Navy Pier is able to conduct attribution of digital advertising and optimize their marketing spend.

“The Aislelabs solution presents an innovative way to help Navy Pier ensure that its marketing efforts are best aligned with its new branding strategy,” said Mark Thompson, Vice President of Data Analytics and Strategic Marketing at Navy Pier. “It will give us the ability to attribute real-world guests to our multiple distinct audience personas, allowing us to speak to each market segment more directly and better cater to consumers’ needs and preferences. This will empower Navy Pier to refine its communications strategies, optimize the impact and efficacy of traditional and digital advertising, and work seamlessly with the many on-site partner establishments to provide our guests with the best experience possible.”

The Aislelabs platform has been integrated with the existing wireless infrastructure on the lakefront premises. Using the advanced artificial intelligence and big data solution from Aislelabs, Navy Pier will be able to learn the true effect that digital advertising has on its guests. The solution reveals repeat guests who are persuaded to visit after being targeted by digital ads through popular online digital and social channels. Going beyond simple click-through rates, Navy Pier now attributes real-world guests to specific digital advertising campaigns, giving them a true view of their return on investment.

The Aislelabs cloud-based solution will drive Navy Pier’s WiFi marketing and location analytics initiatives to better promote, understand, and analyze their world-class events and attractions, thereby optimizing their operations and enabling sophisticated marketing strategies.
