Upcoming London retail technology trade show offers retailer attendees practical workshops with hands on advice on every key element of e-commerce
Retail Technology Business Expo (RBTE), Europe’s fastest growing retail IT trade, show is pulling out all the stops for its e-commerce retail visitors with the newly launched e-commerce Bootcamp.
Attendees to these highly practical workshop sessions for retailers have the opportunity to get hands on advice on every key element of e-commerce. The objective is for delegates to learn about a subject and then be able to go away and implement what they have learnt.
The sessions are designed to inspire and delegates will go back to the office ready to invigorate their colleagues and provide them with valuable insights and a practical plan of action. And the programme has been constructed with the guidance of the e-commerce experts from the RBTE steering committee.
Industry experts with specialist knowledge will lead each session, sharing years of knowledge in one comprehensive session, so that attendees can avoid the pitfalls and reap the benefit of their wealth of experience.
The sessions will kick off with e-commerce search experts from SLI Systems
