Transformation: Excellence in Ecommerce Conference

On April 17th 2024, we hosted our annual ecommerce and retail conference in Dublin. This year saw our biggest conference yet, with over 150 retail attendees.

We were delighted to host a series of presentations with guest speakers from leading ecommerce companies and partners such as Vervaunt, Shopify, Klaviyo, Dataships, Gorgias and WaveOMS.

This year we focused on digital transformation. Digital transformation looks to integrate key technologies to overall improve the user experience while also improving efficiency and looking to build stronger relationships with the customer.

Key Areas for Digital Transformation:

  • Clienteling
  • Owned Data
  • Innovation

Overall digital transformation equips businesses with the tools and ability to adapt in digital age.
