Amazon Plans a Return to Retail Global Las Vegas in October 2018
September 17, 2018 (Las Vegas, NV) – Retail Global has announced that Amazon will join the impressive cast of characters present for this year’s Retail Global event hosted at the Planet Hollywood Hotel, Las Vegas October 9-11. The Earth’s largest online retailer doesn’t make it a regular occurrence of participating in conferences not exclusive to their brand…but, they do for Retail Global – a member of Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Top 10 Must Attend eCommerce Conferences” for boosting online retail business.
Retail Global CEO, Phil Leahy noted, “This is a compelling opportunity for retailers to connect directly with Amazon on our exhibition floor and learn first-hand from Amazon experts. Marketplaces and cross-border are hot trends of opportunity. In the rapid pace of change, nothing beats this type of face-time! With 40% of our retailers doing business on Amazon, we are more than thrilled to have Amazon attend with many other leading companies.”
Although Retail Global is just in its 4thyear hosting this conference in Las Vegas, they are known globally for producing two of the most reputable eCommerce events for retailers – this and Retail Global Gold Coast in Australia approaching its 12thyear.
Retailers offer high praise because of Retail Global’s proven ability to curate superior content for their audience(s). Attendees this year will not only have the chance to meet and learn tried, tested, and successful eCommerce solutions from Amazon experts – the conference MC, Bob Schwartz, founder of Nordstrom.com and former President of Magento, will be introducing keynotes from Lee McCabe VP Alibaba North America, Sean Dollinger CEO Namaste Technologies, Nicole Reyhle the Founder Retailminded.com, and Christi Olson Head of Evangelism Bing, Microsoft. A line-up worthy of a Vegas headline show! For a more comprehensive list of speakers and programs available to attendees, click here.
