Live Conference Has Been Rescheduled To October
As a response to the recent restrictions imposed globally, and as a necessity to ensure attendee health and safety, the eCOM360 conference organisers have made a decision to reserve April 17th, 2020 for an online-only event. The live conference has been rescheduled to October 6th, 2020.
The original conference agenda was published shortly before the restrictions came into force. The event aims to gather representatives from over 20 of the world’s leading brands as well as hundreds of eCommerce practitioners in Riga, Latvia in order to share experience and set the vector for further development both on local markets and globally.
The organisers can assure that the initial event program will not only follow through on the promise but will be enriched to provide visitors with the best possible experience.
Some of the speakers scheduled to perform on April 17th will deliver presentations during a one-day online conference, held on that day. You can follow this link to register for free.
In autumn, the live event will host speakers representing household names from across Europe and the USA, sharing details of their company success stories. Additionally, there are a number of unique eCommerce practitioners joining us for discussion sessions and practical workshops.
All in all, it is safe to say that eCOM360 is gathering world leaders in the digital field, aiming to provide a unique outlook of the industry. This includes an overview of the mobile-first transformation by Alessandra Alari & Natasha Kosoglov, Head of Search and Digital User Experiences Mobile Performance Lead at Google, as well as an eCommerce survival guide for the new decade by Scott Cohen, Chief Innovation Officer at Warner Music Group.
