PacNet Services, an international payment processing company that serves the need of multi channel retailers worldwide, made full use of the networking opportunity to spread the word of their global payment capabilities. Brian Weeks, Head of Sales for PacNet’s European arm, notes, “It was great to meet successful businesses who are expanding overseas, we met quite a few who are an inspiration to others and were glad to share their experiences and challenges. The key to this event is networking and maximising the opportunity to learn from the conference sessions, and this strategy worked very well. We met some great people and are busy continuing discussions with them. The mix of exhibitors providing services for online selling and offline, with catalogue and mail order channels, gave the conference a real dimension, which is missing from pure ecomm trade shows”.
For 22 years the organizers of ECMOD have delivered a show which combines the sharing of knowledge from inspirational speakers in the two day conference, with an exhibition which brings together the systems, services, technology and expertise to address the ever changing needs of the multi-channel retailer. The next networking opportunity offered by ECMOD is in 2013, and PacNet will once again be in attendance, Weekes confirms: “We’ll definitely be back next year”.
