Internet Retailing Conference – October 16th
The Internet Retailing Conference is coming to Hammersmith on the 16th October and as usual Tamebay will be heading up to this event. It’s normally a great chance to meet ecommerce sellers for some networking (beer) as well as a chance to get a quick fix on what’s happening in the Internet retailing arena.
There are three streams throughout the conference focussing on The Customer, The Business and The Industry as well as the normally packed exhibition hall. Prices for the conference start at £295.00 for retailers, but the exhibition and numerous workshops are totally free to attend so there’s no reason not to visit and pick up the latest tips and tricks for online retail.
Here are four topics that might make you want to attend the conference sessions:
- Touchpoints – Online, mobile (customers and staff), tablets, kiosks, TV, re-emergence of the high street, print, social.
- Customer Behaviour & Expectations – showrooming, price matching, social, value and
transparency, store experience, service on their terms.
- Requirements – Optimizing data, personalising all touchpoints, single view of stock, 360 degree view of customers, speed, efficiency and seamlessness across channels and borders.
- The Future – Collaboration, shake up and convergence of payments, reaching the head and heart of individual customers and staff, and then shaking it all about with a splash of innovation and technology.
