Nordic E-commerce Summit, which previously has been held in Stockholm throughout the years, will now for the first time be held in this region. The conference, which has established itself as the biggest e-commerce conference in the Nordics, is also heavily focused on not just B2C products, but also B2C service, sold online.

“We are very proud of having so many international speakers, and that it is more then just product focused e-commerce but also services, such as AirBnB. I believe there is a lot of knowledge being gained from looking into different industries in the online sector and how they operate.” says Sarah Wittbom, chief organiser.

The conference will be held at Malmö Arena, and is estimated to draw 2000 attendees from all over the Nordics and Europe. New for this event is also a larger focus on startups, with special discounts for businesses with new ideas. There will be a special pitch session on the main stage for startups on the 5th of November.

“I want the big players to be inspired by new startup and ideas. E-commerce companies are not always that disruptive, but often rather gradually improving. I want them to get inspiration and connections with people who solve problems in completely new ways”. Sarah says
