Shoptalk Europe 2017, October, 9 – 11 Copenhagen, Denmark

Image: Shoptalk

Shoptalk was launched in the USA last year as an event for retail and ecommerce innovation. Starting with 3,000 attendees in 2016, it grew to 5,500 attendees in just its second year.

That’s enough of a reason to launch Shoptalk Europe, to be held on October 9 – 11, 2017 in the Bella Center in Copenhagen, with more than 2,000 attendees expected in the first year.

Like Shoptalk US, the mission in Europe is to facilitate a much-needed modern retail and ecommerce industry conversation and build a new community of industry leaders and innovators. Shoptalk Europe wants to fill a major industry gap because this dialogue and pan-European—as well as global—community simply do not exist today.

The industry event covers the transformational trends, technologies and business models reshaping how consumers discover, shop, and buy.

It’s a place where established retailers and brands; venture-backed, direct-to-consumer startups; tech and internet companies; investors; media; analysts; and others can come together to learn, collaborate, and evolve.

The following topics are on the agenda: Shopping experiences of the future; designing innovative products and experiences; digitization of physical retail stores; on-demand, delivery and logistics; and investment and entrepreneurship.
