Colin Bendell, Director, CTO, Akamai
Mobile is changing how Commerce businesses approach their customers, and it’s never been more important to understand how technology impacts the customer experience, conversions, and revenue. In an effort to deliver a superior user experience, companies are increasingly relying on third parties to provide everything from stylistic elements to social integrations, which can slow down sites and sabotage the very user experience they’re trying to improve. Akamai’s Colin Bendell, Director CTO Office, will discuss how Commerce companies can recognize and address the challenges inherent in embracing the latest mobile technologies and optimizations such as:

HTTP/2, IPv6, and core technologies
Images and Video for mobile experiences
Cellular optimizations

Chieh Huang, Chief Executive Officer, Boxed Wholesale

Technology has forever changed the way we live our lives, whether it's how we choose to receive our news online, make our doctor's appointments, even how we book travel. No one embraces these changes quite like Millennials. The next generation of shoppers are increasingly moving away from the brick and mortar store model, in favor of the convenience of shopping from their handheld device. In a recent nationwide survey, over 90 percent of Millennials report making purchases on their smartphone each month, and advancements in technology have even changed how we shop in bulk for everyday essentials. Boxed Wholesale was created specifically for consumers for the following reasons:

Save time - Today's shopper don't want to commit to spending half their day traveling to a brick and mortar wholesale shopping club, waiting on long lines to check out, then traveling back home, only to spend more time unloading the items.

Save money - Boxed offers large-sized items and quantities, with wholesale pricing (without charging a shopping club annual membership fee) for those who understand the savings come when you buy in bulk.

Convenience - With Boxed, you can order anytime ,from anywhere, right on your smart phone or computer....and orders are shipped to your doorstep. Boxed does all the heavy lifting....and packages come in 2 days or less.

1:35 PM - 2:05 PM Retail: State of the Union

Mark Walker, Chief Executive Officer, JackThreads

While real disruption has come to many areas of retail, digital fashion brands and brick and mortar stores have not. In 2015, retail purchases climbed just 2.1 percent – wrapping the weakest year since 2009. Further, there is a massive disconnect between traditional brick and mortar and the next generation of shoppers – Millennials.

So, in the current economic climate – how do brands win? Traditionally, brands won through superior product offering, shipping or price. But, to win as a retail brand today, you need to become an experience-first brand that is tailored to how millenials shop. Brands like Uber, Casper and JackThreads have combined their offering with a digital experience. We’ll take deep dive into their stories and uncover how they are exceeding customer expectations today.

Darren Johnson, Chief Sales Officer, Bloomreach
While plenty has been said about how retailers are living in the age of Amazon, not nearly enough has been said about what an age of opportunity this really is.

Retailers not named Amazon need to be ready for the significant percentage of consumers who leave Amazon after an unsatisfying experience - and for the nearly half of consumers who don't start their searches on Amazon.

Learn how to build an Amazon-resistant digital experience based on:
High-quality content that drives relationships, not just transactions
Exclusive inventory that creates loyalty and drives conversion
Product and subject matter experts who build confidence pre- and post-sale
Automated relevance that achieves one-to-one personalization at scale

4:25 PM - 4:40 PM The Business to Human Revolution: Omnichannel Personalization for the Modern Shopper

Liad Agmon, Founder & CEO, Dynamic Yield
Today's consumers are the most tech savvy to date. They don't just delight in seamless omnichannel commerce, they expect it. But enterprise-sized brands can sometimes forget that their shoppers are humans too, not just segments. Companies that succeed in marketing to the individual will thrive, those that don't are destined to fail.

But is it fair to bucket all of today's consumers into the same cohorts? Are there any common themes that emerge when marketing to individuals who know their way around an eCommerce site and app? What can brands do to keep up? Dynamic Yield will discuss the challenges and opportunities that eMarketers face, where the industry is headed, and best practices in person-based marketing.

4:25 PM - 4:40 PM Why is Tech Leaving the Chief Merchant Behind?

Guru Hariharan, CEO, Boomerang Commerce
If you look at the C-suite execs at the helm of retail organizations, each one has software solutions to help them do their specific jobs: the CFO has a dashboard for budgeting, forecasting, planning; the CMO has a marketing platform; HR has specific tools for hiring, performance reviews, etc.; the CIO has an application management solution; and so on. But, what about the Chief Merchant?

The Chief Merchant is arguably the most important person since they own the P&L. However, the Chief Merchant is still working off of spreadsheets to assess performance, manage the business and affect change. They do not have the same set of unified analytics, applications, workflow, and data management to orchestrate strategy across the company...until now.

Enter retail performance management. A new breed of technology tailored specifically for Chief Merchants to drive their merchandising and pricing strategies and drive profitable growth.

In this session, Guru Hariharan, CEO of Boomerang Commerce, will discuss the emergence and current state of retail performance management and best practices to implement to give Chief Merchants the data-driven tools and resources they need to survive in today’s hyper-competitive retail environment.

4:40 PM - 5:10 PM Case Study Revolution: Out Of Stock, But Not Out Of Luck

Stephanie Messiter, VP, Marketins, REVOLVE
You spend all day optimising your website and marketing channels to make customers want to buy what you’re offering. So what happens when, for whatever reason, the product that you’ve convinced your visitors they can’t possibly live without isn’t available at the time they want to buy it? Nobody likes to be set up for a fall, and out of stock items are a minefield, with the potential to harm your online store’s search engine performance as well as its reputation. Stephanie navigates this minefield by:

• Connecting with the online buyer to locate an out-of-stock item

• Promising to notify the customer when it’s back in stock

• Pushing upsells or cross-sells other products that could meet buyers’ needs

• Offering a discount if needed to win the sale

For all retailers, transitioning to an omnichannel strategy comes with great challenges.

Evolving your cross-channel capabilities to become fully omni-channel

Infusing technology throughout the shopping funnel to support customer acquisition and retention: research, purchase and support

Liz Greenberg, VP eCommerce, The Moret Group Sam Norpel, E-Commerce Vice President, Davids Bridal Laurie Weisberg, CRO, Curalate
As customers continue to choose online shopping over brick and mortar, it is imperative for your brand to have a top eCommerce platform that delivers the latest functionality, while also being visually appealing.

Creating landing pages to grab your users’ attention and bring them into your brand’s lifestyle

Performance ability: ensuring page load speeds/site performance are fast to capture customers’ short attention span

Back to basics: providing a rich user experience with accurate search abilities to browse travel offerings and products

Eileen Meade, VP Omnichannel & Customer Experience, Dicks Sporting Goods Anthony Mcloughlin, VP, Digital Marketing, Men's Wearhouse Sahil Gupta, CEO, Onera
Your customers see you as one brand, not different business units within a company, and they expect you to know what they value. Companies are aiming to have a single approach to the customer, but with business silos and different goals by unit, brands can fail at having a consistent approach though the customer journey. Experts on this panel discuss omni-channel checkpoints to drive higher conversions and yield by:

Re-mapping your organization: de-siloing and re-assessing who is in charge of what

Looking at your infrastructure to connect the channels—what you absolutely need for personalization to come together

Budget buckets: what technology is less important than others (or outdated)

Checks and balances: testing to ensure efficiency and accuracy of your approach
