Agenda

The theme of this year’s conference is “Grow with Ecommerce.” Driven by the needs, challenges and preferences of the current and upcoming e-commerce players on the market, this year’s conference will focus on business growth, which can be accelerated with proper management of e-commerce as a significant sales channel. The main focus will be given to the “new customer” and the latest, ever-changing tools to reach that customer. E-commerce can truly be the driver of business growth, and it can meet and exceed managers’ expectations, but only with the right execution. With this in mind, and in pursuit of exceeding the participants’ expectations, you can look forward to a high-quality conference program with domestic and international speakers who have vast experience in their fields. The agenda will be organized in keynote presentations, panel discussions, fireside chats and engagement activities.
