Serial entrepreneurs launch new ecommerce event: Shoptalk Europe
There are already lots of ecommerce events in Europe, but a new one will enter the area next year. And it could be an instant big one. Serial entrepreneurs Anil Aggarwal and Jonathan Weiner will then launch a new industry event, called Shoptalk Europe. This event takes place in Copenhagen between 9 and 11 October 2017.
Aggarwal and Weiner are successful entrepreneurs with more than 350 million euros of successful exits behind them. They sold their latest tech startup, payments platform Txvia, to Google in 2012 for more than 190 million euros and also founded consumer payments event Money20/20.
This year they launched Shoptalk in the United States, with more than 3,100 attendees, including almost 400 CEOs. Now they will launch this ecommerce event in Europe, where it focuses on the rapid evolution of how consumers discover, shop and buy.
Shoptalk Europe expects over 2,000 attendees
Shoptalk Europe expects to welcome more than 2,000 attendees, including over 250 speakers and 200 CEOs for its first edition next year. Themes that will be covered at Shoptalk Europe include: retail experiences of the future, delivery & pickup innovation, investment & entrepreneurship, cross-Border commerce, measurement, analytics & insights and consumer behavior, expectations & demographics.
“We are excited to launch Shoptalk Europe in Copenhagen, which is currently one of Europe’s hottest destinations”, Aggarwal said. “Copenhagen and the Bella Center offer the perfect location for Shoptalk Europe, and provide a convenient environment for learning and collaboration. Copenhagen is an easily accessible city and the Bella Center is located less than 10 minutes from the airport.”
Shoptalk organizes major events for retail and ecommerce innovation. Held annually in both the US and Europe, Shoptalk events represent gatherings of individuals and companies reshaping how consumers discover, shop and buy. The next Shoptalk will be held in Las Vegas on 19 until 22 March next year, followed by Shoptalk Europe, which will take place in Copenhagen from 9 until 11 October 2017.
