Emotion-tracking not only provides invaluable feedback for the brand on where the consumer is most engaged, it also indicates the perfect opportunity to enhance interactivity and brand love through positive emotional response.
Workshop Question - What are the emotions your consumer experiences as they interact with your brand? Where along this journey are they most and least engaged?

2. Emotion-powered Pop-up Shops - Emotion-powered pop-up shops are being designed to create a multisensory, personalized shopping experience for consumers.
3. Sensory Retail Pods - Portable retail pods equipped with interactive video content and 'emotion rooms' are being installed in high-traffic urban areas to target millennial consumers.
Industry Implications

2. Retail Industry - By employing biometric and emotion-tracking technology, the retail industry has the opportunity to create personalized, multisensory shopping experiences for consumers.
