Ecommerce Club & Future of Retail presents, Community Commerce
October 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Community Conscious consumerism – or the desire to buy less but buy “better” is a major force re-shaping the retail industry. As the backlash against single-use plastics has shown us, today’s consumer is looking for the companies they buy from to do more to tackle environmental concerns. Along with this, consumers want to buy from businesses they trust – that are transparent, open and share their values. Building a community, rather than a customer-base, of like-minded individuals that share your values, is one of the most important tasks for any retailer in 2019.
But as people move away from wanting more “stuff”, how can retailers create an army of fans who will buy from them time and again? And what technologies are already out there to help them do that? The event starts at 6pm and will finish by 8.30pm with the talks at 7.00pm. Drinks and pizza will be provided as you arrive and drinks after the panel session ends for some closing networking.
