The inaugural Online Retailer New Zealand to be held at ANZ Viaduct Events Centre, Auckland Wednesday 29 October 2014 will showcase the latest eCommerce technology and e-retailing solutions in conjunction with a compact one day conference. Derived from the largest e-commerce retailing event in the Southern Hemisphere, Online Retailer Conference & eCommerce Expo in Sydney, this launch event is designed to bring together the best of Australia and New Zealand e-retailing in New Zealand!

Digital technology has forever changed traditional business models. For profitable growth, retailers need to build a business strategy for the digital age. Customers expect to browse, shop and interact with brands online and offline, anytime and anywhere. They require outstanding service and experiences and the only thing that really matters to them is the end result: a great shopping experience. 

Online Retailer New Zealand is built around the understanding that if retailers want to survive in this competitive landscape, they need to adapt and be innovative.  The event features case studies of multi-channel and pureplay retailers that have embraced the digital transformation, and taken full advantage of its power. The conference program will help anyone selling online to “think digital” and build a sustainable future for their business.

“We’ve already attracted a significant number of New Zealand attendees to our Sydney event, and I’m delighted that our eCommerce community is growing to New Zealand. Our partnership with the Retail NZ and ecommerce New Zealand are a great example of the ecommerce industries unification across the pacific. This event will arm delegates with big ideas, winning strategies, and networking opportunities to stimulate thinking“ says Event Director, Alice Kuepper.

Mark Johnston, Retail NZ’s CEO, is also delighted that Online Retailer is making the short trip across the Tasman this Spring.

“I attended Online Retailer in Sydney back in July, and I know that the Kiwi contingent who made the trip to Sydney earlier this year gained some invaluable insights into what’s currently driving online shopping growth in Australia.  Sharing some of those success stories with a much wider audience locally, here in New Zealand in Auckland at the end of October, is an opportunity for New Zealand retailers, both big and small, to learn first-hand about some of the current best eCommerce practice close to home.” 

As part of its commitment to bring together all New Zealand retail businesses, Online Retailer invites you to take advantage of the Early Bird Rate ending 1 October 2014.
