Join our mailing list to learn about our next event.


Planning for next year starts now. Analysing data from the Christmas peak period is essential for planning the year ahead. Preparing for any potential Brexit disruption is critical. Taking information from your sales, your highs and lows, putting it together with analytical data helps form a plan for 2017.

Join us for practical discussion on planning for peak and what might happen with Brexit.

We have assembled a host of top industry experts to share with us their first hand experience in planning.

We will hear from industry experts Richard Moyles, (Head of eCommerce for DID Electrical) and Matt Clarke, (Commercial Director at Nielsen) who will give us first hand experiences of their planning processes and economist Susan Hayse Culleton will talk about using Europe's business networks.

This session is followed by an expert panel discussion on Post Peak Analysis and Planning for 2017.

Maurits Buggink, General Secretary of EMOTA, will share what’s being discussed in Brussels on Brexit.

The morning session consists of 8 expert led tables where you can join interactive discussions and ask eCommerce questions pertinent to your business. Feel free to jump from table to table on all subject matters.
