Event Details



Online retailing is at an all time high, IMRG and Capgemini are forecasting that the online retail market in 2013 will grow by 12% in 2013, with consumers spending £87bn online.

Niche brands need to work increasingly harder to acquire & retain customers against tough competition from global giants. Simply having a "nice website" is not enough: the winners must differentiate, add value & offer better service to survive.

To help you keep in touch with best practice e-commerce and industry trends, we would like to invite you to 5th E-commerce forum, organised by Emailvision, MNP, Nomensa, and Screen Pages. It is a rare & focused opportunity for you to hear from a number of industry specialists & businesses and find out what works and what doesn't in the e-commerce world in 2013 - tailored specifically to the interests and issue that face niche brands and retailers selling online.

What will you hear?

The forum will concentrate on marketing, sales & service from an e-commerce best practice perspective - in particular how to increase sales, conversions and improve customer service. Key topics will include search, mobile, usability, content & email marketing & personalisation and fulfilment.
