Beyond Frontiers: Establishing a Marketplace Alliance
Featured Keynote If the last decade has taught us anything about eCommerce, it's that Marketplaces are here to stay. Currently over 50% of the world's online transactions happen on Marketplaces and this number is expected to grow to 65% by 2022. What are leading companies across the globe doing in response? Platform Pioneers from different industries come together to share insights on: - How they view competition in their markets moving into 2020 and beyond - Strategies to ensure survival and sustainable future success - How they plan to adapt to customer demands to differentiate and compete better - Why B2B Marketplaces have more than doubled since the first Mirakl Summit and now represent USD 12.2 tn GMV.
