CHICAGO (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
cleverbridge, a global full-service e-commerce provider for software and SaaS companies, announces its E-Commerce Industry Nights circuit, with stops in Bellevue, Wash., Mountain View, Calif. and San Francisco on Jun. 11, 12 and 13 respectively. Titled “Evolving E-commerce: Banking on B2B,” these events bring together a number of CEOs, VPs of e-commerce, directors of business development and other leaders from software, cloud and subscription companies to share and discuss experiences around the complexities of the B2B e-commerce market.
According to Forrester Research, total annual U.S. B2B e-commerce sales will reach $559 billion by the end of 2013, bringing the transactional volume of B2B e-commerce to more than twice the size of B2C e-commerce. With all that money pouring into a growing market, the E-Commerce Industry Night events will incorporate panel discussions to tackle the new complexities and considerations surrounding the B2B e-commerce market. Featured panel members from Adobe, Autodesk, Biznik, Laplink and SAP Store will discuss how B2B e-commerce affects a variety of business strategies and how B2B software companies must ensure a convenient sales process that reflects their customers’ shopping preferences.
“We are excited about the E-Commerce Industry Night circuit and bringing together some of the West Coast’s best and brightest in software and SaaS to discuss opportunities within the B2B e-commerce market,” said Peter Blunck, vice president of sales and marketing, cleverbridge. “Recognizing the importance of this emerging marketplace, the events will examine today's broader B2B e-commerce landscape, how companies must think about their relative progress and plans going forward, and what organizations can do to optimize their B2B e-commerce teams and processes for success.”
