VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) (Frankfurt: YG3) enters agreement with consultant Pontier Services to set up Urban Juve hemp beauty products for sale through China’s most popular messaging app, WeChat, and to launch a marketing campaign with a pop-up kiosk to rotate through luxury shopping malls and other major locations in Hong Kong for three months beginning in June 2019.
Urban Juve hemp beauty products will be for sale through WeChat and at pop-up kiosk rotating through luxury shopping malls and others major locations in Hong Kong.
According to New Frontier Data, Chinese hemp sales totaled $1.1 billion in 2017, approaching 1/3 of the $3.1 billion global market, with sales forecasted to grow to $1.5 billion (up 36%) by 2020.
The objectives of the pop-up kiosk campaign will be to introduce Urban Juve’s brand story, Ayurveda philosophy and proprietary hemp root oil ingredient skin care products to the Chinese audience through the WeChat platform and to drive sampling and sales transactions through the kiosks. The initial locations for the artificial intelligence enabled kiosk this summer will be 3 luxury shopping malls in Hong Kong, University of Science and Technology, Science Park and the Park Yoho residence clubhouse.
“The use of pop-up kiosks in shopping malls to promote online sales is an innovative way to reach the modern consumer,” says Penny Green, CEO of Yield Growth. “We are excited to launch Urban June’s hemp products in the fast growing Chinese market this summer through WeChat.”
Urban Juve will be the first Canadian brand to launch PopSquare AI-enabled pop-up kiosks in China. Through Pontier and PopSquare, Urban Juve will use big data, computer vision, sensor fusion and machine learning to deliver increased sales, deeper analytics and enhanced customer service.
