The other conferences cover subjects from Internet Retailing In-Store, International and Cross-border retail, to The Customer Journey, Online Merchandising and Selling and Operations and Logistics.
Other confirmed speakers already include Sarah McVittie, chief executive of Dressipi.com, Sarah Baillie, mobile commerce manager at Debenhams, Julia Monro, social media manager at Marks & Spencer, Joanna Robb, head of multichannel at B&Q, Ali Holmes, global ecommerce manager at Vodafone and Matthew Curry, head of ecommerce at Lovehoney.
