We’re excited to announce the launch of the first Ecommerce Tech Meetup in Manchester on Thursday 7th March at Blackfriars House in Manchester city centre. Join us for an evening of ecommerce tech insights, ecommerce networking and free food and drink!
This is our first Ecommerce Tech Meetup and we’re looking forward to bringing you a fantastic night with sponsors Klarna and Nosto to inspire you with insight into ecommerce tech for payment and personalisation.
2018 was a turbulent year for retail with big names such as Toys R Us and Maplin closing their doors and a challenging retail environment impacting on very many others. How can ecommerce tech help retailers make the step change they need to meet ever-growing customer expectations? Join us at our first meetup to hear how Klarna is disrupting traditional payment methods for ecommerce and how smart AI-powered personalisation can lead to happier customers that buy more with Nosto and retailer guests, Woodhouse Clothing.
This meetup is perfect for retailers, developers, solution providers, or just ecommerce tech enthusiasts.
