Spotlight on the future of commerce at next ECOM Africa in April 2023
By: ECOM Africa
The programme will comprise a global community of experts and practitioners and local success stories and up-and-coming start-ups, sharing their experiences in the latest trends across five tracks focused on: retail and e-commerce, fintech and payments, cybersecurity, fulfilment and logistics and the future of marketing.
This will be the ninth edition of this flagship, specialist gathering for the e-commerce, etailing and fintech sectors. With an expected 2,500 attendees it is the largest e-commerce event on the continent.
Digital transformation requires agility
"Resilience has become a buzzword since the pandemic, and global geo-political, energy and economic challenges have continued since then," says ECOM Africa MD Terry Southam. "However, resilience is not enough. Business leaders need to create anti-fragile organisations that not only survive but thrive in a time of accelerated change. Digital transformation requires agility, which is the ability of an organisation to renew itself, adapt, change quickly and succeed in a rapidly changing, ambiguous, turbulent environment"
ECOM Africa will present more than 60 speakers across three stages and five core tracks over two days. To ready companies for the future of commerce, attendees will gain practical insights and expert guidance on the direction of future technologies, best practices and change management in the digital era.
The latest trends that will be unpacked include smart contracts, 3PL (third-party logistics), conversational AI, digital wallets, first-party data, creating a cybersecure culture, email security and social commerce.
