The organization behind the Global E-Commerce Summit has announced the nominees for its annual awards. In two categories, brands and retailers from across Europe compete for the jury’s favor. Finalists then need to present their elevator pitch, after which the GES audience will vote to decide which finalists will take home the awards.
This year’s Global E-commerce Summit will take place in Barcelona from June 12 to 14. A highlight of this three-day event is the award show, where ecommerce professionals recognize and celebrate the efforts of outstanding brands and retailers.
For the ninth edition, there are two categories: the European E-commerce Entrepreneurial Awards and the Global E-commerce Awards. For the first category, a record number of 14 nominees have been selected. These nominees are winners from national ecommerce award shows, organized by ecommerce associations who are partners from Ecommerce Europe, the organization behind the Global E-Commerce Summit.
