With less than one month to go until the Marketplace Summit by Mirakl, it’s fast approaching and we have lots of exciting content and speakers to share. The Summit is the largest global gathering of marketplace executives in the world. Sharing strategy, best-practice, industry leadership and customer testimonials, it promises to be a place to learn and share all things marketplace! The timing couldn’t be better, with Gartner having named Marketplace Management as one of the hot eCommerce topics of 2017.
Attendees will be joined by Suchurita Malpuru, Andy Hoar of Forrester Research, and Roland Berger from the analyst community. Hear from the retail community with Conforama, Blokker, Halfords, Auchan, Nature & Decouvertes, Walmart, Best Buy, Secret Sales, Coolshop, Cdiscount, Alibaba, and Groupon all appearing on stage to share how the marketplace model delivers benefits.. If that wasn’t enough, we can all put our future thinking hats on and hear from Richard Hearn of IBM Watson about how data is transforming retail.
This year will also see a dedicated B2B track and you will be able to learn about manufacturers going direct to the customer without channel conflict, or distributors creating a digital hub for their many business units, all via the marketplace model. There will be other interesting announcements on the day about B2B business transformation and tips to kick-start your strategy.
Mirakl will be sharing our latest roadmap and innovations across our product and technical teams, as well as co-CEO Adrien Nussenbaum sharing our vision for the future of marketplaces.
The Summit will also provide an opportunity to meet the Mirakl marketplace partner ecosystem. Partners will be exhibiting and speaking on best practices that are emerging and on examples of innovations powered by the marketplace model.
With so much crammed into 36 hours in Paris (don’t worry - we managed to find time for a party) it promises again to be a can’t miss event for the year and will help retailers, brand manufacturers and distributors shape their plans for 2017 and beyond. Don’t get left behind - make sure you you are at the marketplace event of the year - it won’t be back for another 12 months.
We look forward to seeing you there!
