The International Conference eCom21 Starts in Riga Tomorrow

15-Nov-2017, 14:06 / Products & Services This Thursday, the two-day international conference on e-commerce issues, eCom21, will start in Riga.

It will be the sixth forum held in the capital of Latvia, invariably under the auspices of Rietumu Bank.

The conference will gather about 600 participants from more than 20 countries, including Russia, Belarus, Estonia, the Netherlands, the USA, Great Britain, Finland, Germany, Malta, Cyprus, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and other countries.

According to the Executive Director of eCom21 Ilya Shevchenko, “The authority of the conference and the interest in it are obviously increasing. And here, I am convinced, the key role is played by the focus on the benefit for the specific business. Boring speeches is not our profile; eCom21 always involves live communication, fierce disputes, exchange of opinions and business contacts.”

The key theme of the forum is “E-Commerce HD⊃2;: Homo Digitalis in High Definition”. The participants will discuss how understanding the needs and wishes of a specific human being helps to build and promote a business. They will also consider the best technologies to be applied for the implementation of such strategy.

Alongside the main theme, other important trends and issues of e-commerce will also be discussed, such as significant changes in the regulation of e-commerce, the future of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, the rapidly developing internet of things, cybersecurity, prospects of new markets and others.

During two days, guests of eCom21 will be able to listen to speeches of authoritative experts and successful entrepreneurs, take part in discussions, exchange opinions in an informal environment and establish new business contacts.

On the first day of the forum representatives from famous services such as Alibaba Group, eBay Russia, Yandex.Money, VKontakte, as well as VISA payment system, Rietumu Bank, Skolkovo Fund, the Latvian State Revenue Service and other experts, will hold their speeches.

On Friday, speeches of top managers from Globitex, Google Russia, OZON.ru, ESET, ICOnic.vc, CleverDATA, Deloitte and other international companies are scheduled.

eCom21 is the largest international conference in the field of e-commerce in the Baltic states. It is visited by hundreds of participants from the Baltic states, Central, Eastern and Western Europe, CIS countries, Asia and other regions of the world. Every year heads of internationally recognised companies, e-commerce experts and business sharks are invited to the forum. The conference is held under the patronage of Rietumu Bank.
