The new InternetRetailing Summit, being launched in conjunction with The InternetRetailing Europe Top500 (IREU 500), aims to address the many and varied challenges of doing pan-European business.

What to expect?

By bringing together 150 of the brightest minds in retail and programming a series of off-the-record discussions the Summit creates a rare chance for a candid exchange of ideas and information, with peer-to-peer interaction at the core.

The Summit programme is built around six key performance ‘dimensions’ (Customer Experience; Mobile; Operations & Logistics; Brand & Engagement; Merchandising; Strategy & Innovation) examined via carefully curated discussions and intimate roundtable conversations.

The IREUTop500 Leaders Panels and Next Generation Tech Workshops add to the multi-format structure, providing varied pace and differing levels of interaction.

You’ll have the chance to explore, understand and shape the future of European retail and fully engage with other retail heroes and practitioners, including:

  • David Schneider, Co-Founder, Zalando

  • Amee Chande, UK MD, Alibaba Group

  • Rajesh Kumar, VP Merchandising Concept to Consumer, adidas Group

  • Ines von Jagemann, Member of the Executive Board, eCommerce, Tchibo
