eCommerce Turkey: International insights and consumer confidence

UBM is launching eCommerce Turkey, taking place in Istanbul on 27-29 November 2012

In an economic climate of increasing turbulence, opportunities for growth may appear limited. The Turkish economy - set to grow faster than 6% this year – offers businesses in Turkey, Europe and the US one of these rare opportunities…

UBM is launching eCommerce Turkey, taking place in Istanbul on 27-29 November 2012, to provide an economic insight from international and Turkish e-commerce experts on how to get the most from this booming market.

Part of the established and highly regarded eCommerce Expo brand, this two day conference leverages the experience of speakers from Facebook, eBay Turkey, Early Bird Venture Capital, Google Turkey and more to look at how to earn the trust of consumers, maximise the benefits of social media and get funding and investment. The conference is also preceded by a half-day workshop giving practical tips on getting up to speed with e-commerce for traditional retailers, delivered by the UK’s industry association for e-retail, IMRG.

Turkish e-commerce is thriving but there are essential lessons to be learned from beyond its borders. eCommerce Turkey offers the opportunity to hear global success stories from those in the UK, Russia and central and eastern Europe.

“We are excited to be bringing the expertise of our team to Turkey, and to be working with the industry’s key individuals, organisations and associations to do so “ said Conference Producer, Tessa Hood. “Both within and beyond Turkey there has been a great deal of interest in the event and it looks set to create international networking and learning opportunities unsurpassed by other events.”

eCommerce Turkey is already attracting representatives from online and bricks and mortar retailers, FMCGs, banks, travel and tourism companies with responsibility for e-commerce, online, ebusiness, marketing, digital as well as those exploring their options for online sales. Attendees can choose which elements to attend from the conference on 28-29 November, the half day workshop on 27 November or simply one day depending on their schedules and organisation’s business needs.

In addition to the industry-leading information and international speakers, the event also offers a unique networking opportunity to build existing relationships as well as bridge the gap between European, US and Turkish businesses.
