About Us

WHY ATTEND COMMERCENEXT?

When we ask e-commerce leaders to tell us the most important topic for them, year after year, it’s customer acquisition.

The focus on customer acquisition may come as no surprise given that Amazon now represents $0.50 of every $1.00 spent online and 25% of the total growth in retail both online and offline. In addition to Amazon, e-commerce growth is under pressure from increased marketing costs, customer churn as well as fast-changing customer behaviors, attitudes and uses of technology and media.

Helping the industry navigate and succeed in this fast-paced, high stakes world is what CommerceNext is all about. Join us July 25-26, 2018, for two-days of insights, best practices, peer-to-peer interaction and digital marketing leaders sharing their knowledge - all with an eye towards helping you acquire new customers and grow your retail and e-commerce businesses.
