Back and bigger than ever – the leading online marketplace conference, Retail Without Borders, returned this year for it’s sixth and greatest London edition, welcoming the highest number of attendees to date! The ecommerce-packed day saw the likes of the world’s most influential international marketplaces meeting with the biggest names in global retail, all in the name of promoting business growth worldwide.
The eventful day was crammed full of crossborder insights, and provided all the invaluable information needed for retailers looking to broaden their horizons internationally, through online marketplaces.
This year we welcomed 30+ ecommerce experts to the stage, to share their insights into today’s online retail climate and how businesses can explore opportunities of growth crossborder. Given the ongoing deliberations around the UK’s position in the EU, our first panel session on cross-border opportunities post-Brexit, guest-chaired by renowned broadcaster Jon Snow, provided a great point of discussion and delivered a greater understanding of what other business opportunities lie in unexplored markets.
Other topics covered included current issues businesses experience within online retail – the battle for the high-street, the rise of the conscious consumer, and delving into developing ecommerce markets, among other themes.
We were proud to be joined on the day by a multitude of marketplaces, including Rakuten, Cencosud, Catch, La Redoute, Trade Me, Fruugo, NewEgg, eBay for Business and Zalando, to name a few.
