Facebook; the network with a higher population than that of the EU, to feature at eCommerce Expo as a leading keynote

Facebook; the network with a higher population than that of the European Union, to feature at eCommerce Expo as a leading keynote


Tuesday 11th – Wednesday 12th October, Olympia 2, London

Hardly a week goes by without the industry discussing whether the future is social, with Facebook set to be leading the way.  With more than 750 million active users, Facebook's population exceeds that of the European Union*, making  the Facebook platform increasingly attractive as an enterprising marketplace.
With the recent launch of Facebook for Business, we can see this agenda-setting outlet positioning F-commerce as a player in the online retail market.

With an exclusive keynote on the ‘Social Design, Social Commerce’, the session at eCommerce Expo will give  businesses an in depth consideration of the tools and techniques needed to capitalise on Facebook’s success and propel their brand into the digital age.  

Over the past 11 years Britons have spent an estimated £300 billion shopping on the internet and this trend looks set to continue, making  an effective ecommerce strategy integral to any retail business’ success.  With 12 keynotes, 50+ conference sessions and over 100 exhibitors educating attendees on business in the digital age, eCommerce Expo, the UK’s leading event for ecommerce, has seen its reach widen to the general business community.  

In this constantly evolving climate, businesses who fail to keep up, those that don’t become social, mobile and truly digital see  their brand get left behind.
