A review of eCommerce Expo, Olympia London September 26-27, 2018

Posted by Thomas Andersson on

Styleintelligence view: (down from 5 in 2017) eCommerce Expo is one of the largest ecommerce events in the UK attracting a very large audience over the two days to Olympia. The reason we have downgraded this show is due to the simple fact it has shrunk dramatically. Top vendors such as SAP, Manhattan Associates and many other big brands have disappeared from the layout.

One company stood out from the rest though: Astrivis Astrivis is a 2 year old startup from Switzerland which started...

A review of Retail Without Borders by We Are Pentagon

Posted by Thomas Andersson on

Definitely worth visiting!  Retail Without Borders 2018 #RWB18 is one of the better conferences for its networking opportunities. It is not one of the largest conferences, neither the best quality speakers (most often co-sponsors), but if you are looking to talking and networking with your peers this is definitely worth a visit. The fact the conference is held in the QE2 centre just opposite Houses of Parliament add is a bonus and very easy access. The event is organised by We Are Pentagon The main theatre at #RWB18, ex-Alibaba speker Al Gerrie, CEO at ZigZag Global
