Takeaways from eDelivery Conference, TeCOMM, and DCA for the Smaller Retailer (episode 021)

Following on from last week’s update from the Internet Retailing Conference, I’m bringing you another conference update.

So again, Instead of an interview with an eCommerce business person I’m bringing you more  hot-off-the-press ecommerce conference updates.

All these updates come from eCommerce conferences I’ve attended in the last 2 weeks:

  • eDelivery Conference, London
  • TeComm’s Power to the Customer, Romania
  • Direct Commerce Association’s Autumn Conference, London

As per last week I’ve looked through all my notes, conversations, stand information and the rest(!) and summarised it down into what the smaller retailer can take from each conference. This is my distillation of the key themes and takeaways to bring you (the smaller ecommerce business person) the ideas that will help you with your business over the coming year.

I’ll be covering them in chronological order, for each I’ll explain a bit more about it, then dive into the key lessons from it.

As ever if you have any questions about this or would like to discuss in more details – just get in contact with me.
