Catalyst 2015

Online spending shows no signs of slowing down, and as a retailer you need to be sure you’re making the most of this opportunity by having a fail-safe e-commerce strategy in place. If getting to grips with the ever-increasing tools, channels and logistics is making your head spin, you’re not alone.

The Most Anticipated E-Commerce Event of 2015 Is Nearly Here!

Relax. You can breathe again, because Catalyst Europe is taking place on the 23rd April. It’s a full day dedicated to briefing you on what’s trending in e-commerce, from marketplaces and digital marketing to payments and fulfilment, with timely advice on how to work that multichannel approach. If you’re thinking of expanding internationally, you’ll find plenty of food for thought, too, with key takeaways on how to tackle cross-border trade (CBT).

No matter your business size, your goals or the stage you’re at in your e-commerce journey, you can tailor your Catalyst agenda to suit you. Pick and choose from sessions across three tracks. Be inspired by our keynote speakers and mix with peers and partners during networking breaks.
