If you are reading this, you probably already know a thing or two about eCOM360 2020 – the second annual conference held by Scandiweb, focused around sharing insight from some of the eCommerce industry forefronters.
But do you know enough about the venue? Let’s take a quick look.
The place is called Hanzas Perons. Historically, the building used to serve as Riga cargo railway warehouse and has lately been reimagined as a concert hall and a hub for a wealth of events – art, culture, music and beyond.
Reborn as a contemporary piece of architecture, the venue holds true to its 100+ year history, integrating modern design language and functionality, with the industrial heritage of the building itself and the surrounding area.
Hanzas Perons, apart from being an aesthetically interesting choice, has somewhat symbolic overtones in the context of eCOM360. It has come a long way before it eventually transformed from raw industrial utility to a modernist multi-purpose space, reflecting the hands-on, trailblazer spirit of its creators, and resonating with the modern generation of entrepreneurs, as well as the state of constant development within eCommerce.
