All of that opportunity for e-retailers also means some serious competition for customer attention, acquisition, and revenue. If you’re thinking of launching an e-com business–or shooting for huge growth for your business in the coming year–you can and should learn from the massive successes (and failures!) of the e-tailers who’ve paved the road before you.
For me, there’s no better place to hear from, and network with, these digital pioneers and icons than at top e-commerce conferences across the country. The five I’ve included here offer unparalleled access to tools, talent, and leadership across all verticals–and always leave me brimming with new ideas and connections. If you’re heading to any of them, please tweet me to meet up!
The attendee list at CommerceNext is limited to around 800 digital retail executives and solution providers, with a ratio of 2:1 (so you’re able to have more meaningful conversations with the people you’ve come to meet). The two-day event is structured with keynotes and panels in the morning followed by roundtables and breakout sessions in the afternoon–with an all-important networking lunch slated right in between.
Speakers from a diverse array of brands such as Willams Sonoma, Sephora, Sweaty Betty, Vans, and Foot Locker bring their real-world experiences to sessions focused around topics such as “using AI and machine learning to create real-time customer experiences,” “transforming the traditional loyalty program” and “personalized text messaging as a marketing channel.”
