With Forrester predicting that by 2022, 40% of global eCommerce sales will be through marketplaces - there has never been a more pressing need for the industry to galvanize their marketplace strategy.
Each year Mirakl brings together market-leading retailers, innovative technology partners and leading industry analysts to celebrate the power and potential of the marketplace model at the Mirakl Marketplace & Platform Summit.
On June 7th, we will be hosting the 4th Annual Summit in Paris - an action packed day culminating in a cocktail party. Located in the iconic Station F, the world’s largest startup incubator, the focus this year will be on going beyond the marketplace model and exploring how the platform revolution is profoundly transforming the way commerce works around the world.
Who should attend?
Last year we brought together over 350 delegates, 17 partners and held over 20 sessions - and this year is going to be even better.
The agenda includes two session tracks: B2B and B2C - so whatever your business model, there’s something for you.
We welcome senior executive delegates from leading retailers, brands, distributors and manufacturers all round the world (20 countries were represented last year).
What to expect?
We will be welcoming to the stage senior executives from some of the most innovative retailers in the world to understand how they are approaching the platform revolution.
- Deep-dive - Putting the spotlight on Catch Group’s impressive growth journey as they uncover how they went from 1 to 100m € in 1 year.
- How can retailers marry merchandising and marketplace strategy to achieve their growth targets?
- Why should brands be launching direct to consumer platforms?
- How can marketplace power your omnichannel strategy?
- What do marketplaces mean to the C-suite?
Last year we put a stake in the ground that 2017 would be the year B2B marketplaces really took off, and we weren’t wrong. Here are some highlights of the content you can expect:
- Analysis - Roland Berger will explain how B2B businesses are embracing the marketplace model to keep the threat of Amazon at bay.
