An informal event aimed at online retailers with a turnover over £1m+, looking to achieve phenomenal growth.
The event will bring together a team of international e-commerce experts, including market leading e-commerce platform Shopify Plus; customer data integration specialists VL OMNI; e-commerce shopping personalisation leaders Nosto; and law firm and retail experts DWF, to talk to the region’s businesses about how they can join the ranks of the world’s fastest growing brands.
North Shields-based e-commerce experts RFD are hosting the ticket-only event, which is designed for online retailers with a turnover of £1m or more, who want to scale up and achieve faster growth.
RFD’s design director Ryan Foster said: “This is a chance for regional brands to talk to a group of global experts about how they can use the latest technology tools such as Shopify Plus to achieve phenomenal growth.
“The results speak for themselves. For instance we helped active wear brand Gymshark replatform to Shopify Plus, which saw their turnover go from £12.5m to £41m in 12 months; and we helped Australian swim wear brand Triangl achieve a $60m turnover in its first three years of trading. We have 3 clients targeting £100m revenues in 2018.
“Guests will be able to talk to our clients about their experience of how using a platform like Shopify Plus means they can focus on growing their business, instead of worrying about their website.
“This is a unique opportunity to meet and chat with all of these companies together in one room here in the North East. There will be no big presentations, just five minute introductions then a chance to meet and chat one to one with real ecommerce experts.
“Bringing an international team of this calibre together is a first for the North East and we already have companies travelling from Scotland and the South West to attend the event. We are looking forward to seeing many of the region’s ambitious retailers there.”
