Consumer engagement and differentiated experiences are themes echoed by Paul Glantz, CEO, Emagine Entertainment, “Our experience with CEN has been exceptional – the positive impact on guest experience and the additional revenue we receive has exceeded expectations.”
Glantz continued, “The deployment at our Palladium Theatre in Birmingham, MI, was honored as “Best Overall Retail or Mall Experience” at the Daily DOOH 2015 Gala Awards, which in addition to the business results made the decision to include CEN in our operational plan for our recent acquisition of Mueller Theatres a no-brainer.”
