Attending this show is a must for anyone serious about getting ahead in the retail industry,” said Seamus Whittingham, Managing Director EMEA, ChannelAdvisor. “NewCommerce is an umbrella under which e-commerce converges with local, mobile and social advancements, as well as cross-border trade, to create an ‘anytime, anywhere’ level of accessibility for shoppers.”
Day one of Catalyst Europe will consist of the Catalyst Academy, a series of educational workshops with practical tips for online retailers.

The second day of the Catalyst conference will include an in-depth keynote panel discussion on the changing face of the global retail landscape and how retailers can adapt.
Drawing a broad spectrum of retailers from SMEs to leading high street brands and global organisations, Catalyst Europe will also provide attendees with an opportunity to network and discuss international expansion with their peers.
