Ecommerce event One to One focuses on ROI and innovation
The fourth edition of what has become the most important ecommerce ‘rendez-vous’ in France starts tomorrow in Monaco. More than 800 decision makers and big names from the ecommerce industry are heading today to the French Riviera for 1,500 one-to-one business meetings and network opportunities.
All this is happening at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco from the 18th till the 20th of March 2014, as you may already have noticed by checking our Ecommerce Events Calendar. The One to One conference is meant to be very ROI-focused. All participants have their personal schedule filled with one-to-one meetings they previously requested online. Ingrid Fillon, manager of the event, has told Journaldunet that everything is organized to celebrate signatures of new partnerships with a bottle of champaign, a VIP treatment or even a press conference. Among the new partners this year that are looking for expansion in Europe are Google, Darwin, Datawords and Quantcast.
