What will “E-Commerce 2.0” Look Like in the Next Few Years?

Speakers: 

Retailers who leverage the power of online commerce, communities, personalization and other online strategies are poised to do well in the new year.  After all, e-commerce is the one positive story from the 2009 holiday season.  According to ComScore, online retailing grew 4% (from the beginning of November through December 18) to $24.8 billion, while sales conducted in stores fell flat in comparison to 2008.

Join this event to hear a panel of CEO's from leading online retailers share their experiences about how the Internet has created powerful opportunities for growth within their consumer internet businesses.  Discussion points will include:

  • How e-commerce has, and continues to, change the landscape of the retail industry
  • What old and new online strategies are being done to aggressively take market share
  • How retailers are leveraging the Internet and emerging social media channels to market to new customers
  • How community and social sharing is being used to created an engaging ecommerce experience
