T Minus 6 Weeks and Counting: 5 reasons why you should attend Summit 2018

April 27, 2018

The countdown is on, it’s officially 6 weeks to go until the Marketplace and Platform Summit 2018, hosted at the world’s most exciting start-up incubator, Station F. This year we’re bringing together the top movers and shakers from across the marketplace ecosystem to give you all the tools you need to grow your revenue.

On stage we will be joined by businesses leading the platform revolution, to tell the stories of how they have achieved success, and what they’ve learnt along the way -  this is a must-attend event!

But don’t just take my word for it, I caught up with some of my colleagues from across the company (and indeed the world!) to get the low-down on what they’re most looking forward to and why this is an event you can’t afford to miss.

I'm most excited about the CEO of LabViva giving a very direct talk about how they're taking on Amazon. He's disrupting the life sciences industry with the marketplace model, and using his expertise as a scientist as a central part of LabViva's platform business. Many companies shy away from discussing Amazon directly, and Siamak Barhaloo is not shy about this.

The Summit is a great opportunity to get insights into the latest developments in platform business models, in particular in B2B. Take the Accor Hotel group, they are literally building the next generation of procurement. Now that's quite an amazing challenge. Really looking forward to hearing how Accor is managing to disrupt itself by shifting the traditional procurement paradigm.

I’m incredibly lucky to be joined on stage by two businesses who have turbo charged their marketplace strategy. I’ll be talking to Yannick Leouffre, CMO & eCommerce Director at Go Sport and Stefano Toro and Marketplace Assistant Director at Walmart Mexico, both retailers launched their marketplace within four months. Join us if you’re interested in learning all the tips and tricks to get live fast and create quick wins for your marketplace.

Earlier this year I joined Nati Harpaz, CEO of Catch Group on stage at Retail Week Live where he shared their phenomenal story. With Amazon’s entry into the Australian Market, Catch Group set an aggressive goal to go from 1 to 100M€ GMV in year one on their marketplace. Catch now have 800 sellers on their platform, but 4000 who want to join. It’s a lesson in how to scale but remain selective.

Why come to the summit? Because it's the only event where we gather a group of partners with unique expertise and experience in the Marketplace space. For me, it's extremely satisfying to see our guests and partners learning and sharing, meeting like minded individuals from around the world, and most of all having fun.
