It has been 24 hour since The BIG eCommerce Conference closed yesterday and I am still on cloud nine. Our speakers provided some incredible content and the feedback from delegates has exceeded all our expectations.
I feel passionately that smaller eCommerce and retail businesses should see their size as an asset. The bigger companies like amazon and John Lewis have huge budgets but the smaller companies have passion, proper product knowledge, customer knowledge and often deal with a customer from enquiry right through to after care and community. The last point was touched upon by many of the speakers – small businesses should be getting “out there” (on and off line) because community means a loyal customer base.
We are already planning the 2013 event, with a new website and booking system and in the over the next few weeks we will be releasing some video footage of the day courtesy of London Corporate Media. In the meantime here are some snaps taken on the day from our conference event photographer Ian Olsson
