Issued by Kinetic Events - Mar 8th, 13:23
Global commercial giants descend on Cape Town for the continent’s largest ecommerce gathering.
Cape Town, South Africa: More than 300 companies within the African ecommerce ecosystem will gather in Cape Town on the 19th and 20th March to review the latest technology influencing online retail and fulfillment. Attendees will learn how to leverage the rapid growth of cross border payments; customer security and how African companies can compete with the likes of Amazon.
The experts guiding the 2019 event are global leaders and game changers shaping the ecommerce landscape well beyond Africa. Google, Naspers, DHL and Jumia are among the giants who will be shaping the discussion. “The collection of thought leaders and the topics under discussion this year are aimed at creating an immediate impact for African ecommerce companies. From marketing to fulfilment, the world’s best will be on stage sharing best practice and innovative hacks to drive online growth”
“It is quite remarkable to have all of these industry leaders on the same stage not only willing to share but actively working to grow the industry and ensure African customers receive a world-class online shopping experience.” Terry Southam, Kinetic Managing Director.
DHL partners with the conference for the second year running, extending their commitment to driving innovation within the fulfilment space as Lead Sponsor of the Show.
One of the most highly anticipated discussions is the presentation by Brands Eye, the social insights organization that famously predicted the 2016 US election results through social media sentiment analytics. The now globally renowned South African insights company will be presenting a fascinating comparison between how people talk and engage on traditional vs eCommerce platforms, with a cross-market comparison between the UK and South Africa.
