We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Shoptalk Europe today.
Similar to its U.S. counterpart, Shoptalk Europe will cover the evolution of how consumers discover, shop and buy, and bring together leaders from established retailers and brands, disruptive startups, leading tech and Internet companies, prolific venture capital investors and other key stakeholders.
Shoptalk Europe will focus on the trends and technologies disrupting retail and ecommerce throughout Europe, but also incorporate important global perspectives.
Shoptalk Europe will be held at The Bella Center in Copenhagen on October 9-11, 2017, following the Shoptalk U.S. event, which will take place at the Aria in Las Vegas on March 19-22, 2017. Each event will recur annually, approximately six months apart.
We expect more than 2,000 attendees, including over 250 speakers and 200 CEOs, at Shoptalk Europe’s inaugural three-day event, which will provide an unprecedented platform for the ecosystem to learn, network, collaborate and evolve. Attendees will range from local, regional and global leaders and startups to high growth companies looking to enter and scale in the European marketplace.
Some of the themes that will be covered at Shoptalk Europe include:
- Retail Experiences of the Future
- Physical Retail Goes Digital
- Delivery & Pickup Innovation
- Investment & Entrepreneurship
- Disruptive Startups & Pioneering Brands
- Cross-Border Commerce
- Marketing Evolution
- Measurement, Analytics & Insights
- Culture & Leadership
- Consumer Behaviour, Expectations & Demographics
- Regulations & Privacy
We are particularly excited to launch Shoptalk Europe in Copenhagen, which is currently one of the hottest European destinations, and where we hosted the inaugural Money20/20 earlier this year.
Copenhagen and the Bella Center offer the perfect location for Shoptalk Europe, and provide a convenient environment for learning and collaboration. Copenhagen is an easily accessible city and the Bella Center is located less than 10 minutes from the airport. Attendees can stay at the Bella’s onsite hotel or choose from a variety of hotels nearby in every price range.
Katy Fryatt, who previously launched Money20/20 Europe, which became Europe’s largest FinTech and payments event in just its first year, will oversee the rollout of Shoptalk Europe over the coming several months.
