CommerceNext, the conference for next level customer acquisition, is scheduled for July 31 - August 1, 2019, in New York. The 2019 conference moves to the Grand Hyatt and is expanding to two full days.
CommerceNext is an annual ecommerce conference that brings together the best minds in retail, and ecommerce digital marketing, and customer acquisition. It’s initial summit in July 2018 in NYC brought together more than 400 attendees and 60 speakers such as Carrie Ask, EVP and President, Global Retail, Levi’s; Vijay Talwar, President, Digital, Foot Locker; and Aaron Sanandres, Co-founder and CEO, UNTUCKit.
CommerceNext is expanding in both size and length of time. For 2019, the conference will be a full two days, allowing for 25% more sessions and speakers. Moving to the Grand Hyatt allows the attendance to scale to more than 700 e-commerce leaders.
CommerceNext will continue many of the elements from its successful 2018 conference including:
