Join us at 11.20am at the Internet Retailing Conference on October 16th for this free workshop with Mirakl and Galeries Lafayette, a major French department store founded in the 19th century. In this workshop Internet and E-commerce Director Franck Zayan will tell us more about Galeries Lafayette’s decision to launch its marketplace to create a real “online concession” business.
Franck Zayan will explain why the launch of a marketplace directly fits into at Galeries Lafayette’s omnichannel approach to serving their clients with the most complete shopping experience. He will talk about the meticulous selection of retailers allowed to sell their products directly on Galerieslafayette.com and how this innovation that followed a complete platform change was made possible.
Following Franck Zayan’s presentation, Adrien Nussenbaum, Co-founder and Head of Sales of Mirakl, will briefly talk about how online marketplaces can help retailers achieve online profitable growth. Adrien will also explain how Mirakl’s marketplace solution was built to provide its customers with all best practice functionalities and total flexibility such as in the Galeries Lafayette context where Mirakl is notably coupled to Hybris and Endeca.
