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


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
