The ECMOD Direct Commerce Show, which takes place at the Business Design Centre on November 27th-28th, has pulled out all the stops to ensure ECMOD lives up to the promise of “Every Channel: Mastered, Optimised, Delivered”.
Now in its 22nd year, ECMOD delivers a show that combines the sharing of knowledge from inspirational speakers in the two-day conference, with an exhibition that brings together the systems, services, technology and expertise to address the ever changing needs of the multichannel retailer.
Co-located with US-based Data Driven Business Week, which brings its international exhibitors to a UK audience, the combined exhibition space houses more than 80 specialist companies. Not only will visitors and delegates benefit from demonstrations of the latest products and learn in detail about the latest industry innovations, there’s all this too:
Fantastic Free Seminars
Industry giant Barclaycard has teamed up with ecommerce solutions specialist Powa to host two seminars on the 27th and 28th November dedicated to provide visitors with all the information they need to start selling online. These practical, best-practice sessions explain how to build an online store in less than an hour and why there has never been a better time to expand your online business.
Peruse the Catalogue Gallery
This year’s show will see the return of the Catalogue Gallery, sponsored by Warners Midlands, where visitors will see one of the most extensive collections of print catalogues you’ll find anywhere. Visitors are free to browse an array of more than 1,200 catalogues. If you want us to display your catalogue, then post your latest editions to the ECMOD offices, 155 High Street, Ilfracombe, EX34 9EZ before 20th November.
