The roundtables were easily my favorite part of the event. This is the first time I’ve had the chance to talk best practices with VPs. I walked away with tons of new strategies to bring back with me. I’ve attended many events before, none have been so tailored to my level like this was. Great work!

Philippe Gaboury, E-Commerce Operations Lead, Bestseller

Top retailers. Top level executives. Top level strategies. Amazing intimacy. I spoke to all the people I wanted to without being rushed. I walked away with new friends. These guys nailed it!

Gerald Cruz, Senior Director of Business Development, Petra Industries

My biggest hesitation at these shows is being pitched constantly. This was the opposite. It was a conversation. One that honed in on my individual challenges, and how to fix them. I love the fact that I was able to choose which solution providers I meet, based on my current challenges. These solution providers showed genuine interest in my issues.

Jonathan Gamble, Director, Brand Partnerships, Wayfair

I walked away with discussions with solution providers that will help increase my business, and most importantly, our revenue. Etail Connect is where business gets done.

Lilli Izumi, Manager, Brand Marketing, MVMT

You cannot beat the 1-2-1 meetings we get at eTail Connect. We could’ve gone to a trade show and made thousands of the wrong people. At eTail Connect we met the decision makers, who were looking to do business, and wanted to hear from us.

Chris Ang, Enterprise Account Executive, Linc Global

What we found unique with this event was the match making that the event team did for us. Before the event took place, we already knew which retailers were interested in our products. eTail Connect put us in direct contact with them. It made the nature of doing business much easier. Bravo!

Rafael Esberard, VP of Sales Enablement, VTEX

“Where else do I get to experience private meetings with retailers I’ve been trying to get on the phone? Seriously. It’s nice to be at a show and know that the attendees coming are actually here to invest.”

Adam Bowen, Business Development, Fanplayr

“It was a really great conference. I found the average attendee was much more senior and therefore more knowledgeable vs most other conferences, which in turn made for great networking and roundtables.”

Aaron Zagha, Head of eCommerce, International Operations, Teleflora/Petals

“I’m beyond satisfied with the intimate feel of the event. It allowed me quality facetime with retailers and vendors to help gain insights and solutions to the challenges I’m facing.”

Peter Huh, CTO, Quest Nutrition

“Hearing from such high level retailers has helped define the direction I should be taking my business. It’s nice to know other companies at my level have experience the same challenges I go through.”

Mary Plemons, VP of Operations, Verlo Mattress

“It’s nice to attend a conference and NOT feel like you are at a trade show. Not only does eTail Connect an intimate feel but it’s at a 4 star hotel. It’s nice to be able to share a drink with leaders of my industry. We can sit back an relax while networking and sharing ideas. It’s really been a great experience.”

John Gregory, Head of Retail, Pandora

“Well managed conference that was probably the best I have ever attended. The timing was excellent and the communication was superb. This was a great combination of proficiency, customer awareness and business acumen. The people I had access to, the business leaders I was able to meet with and the blend of business and informal dialogue was a breath of fresh air setting this trip apart from the standard conference and conventions I have attended.”

Gary Kazmer, General Manager Global e-Commerce, Crayola

“I found the show to be really helpful in seeing how retailers and brands are leveraging mobile to drive their shopping experience. The format of the show is pretty unique with main stage presentations, one on one vendor meetings, and small round table discussions that allow for a more personalized experience and very open dialogue. I have attended a lot of similar shows, but this one was really helpful for me in taking back some specific action items, especially with a number of the suppliers that I was introduced to.”

Mike Hornigold, Group Director of Emerging Shopper Technologies, Coca Cola

“I can easily say that it was one of the best conferences I have ever attended. The organization was flawless; the topics, the speakers and the attendees were a unique combination of talent, experience and creativity. I cannot wait to be part of the next event.”

Giacomo Lami, Director of Mobile Product Management, Rakuten
