Trade Conferences International’s fourth bi-annual Online Retailing Conference Cape Town 2012 will bring professionals from; technology, innovation, management, implementation, governance, and security all together in the melting pot of twenty-first century online retailing.
An independent study held by a major South African retail group shows that retail conducted online only accounts for 0.5% of the total retail sales in South Africa. When this is compared to figures of other European and Asian countries these statistics can jump up to 10% of total retail sales.
This shows not only the potential of the online market but also indicates as to where the Southern African market will be in the future as innovation, secure payment methods and an online retail culture develop. Furthermore studies suggest that 80% of online retailers are profitable with a mere 1% of business running a loss online.
With this in mind, there is no better way to explore and possibly capitalise on this increasing trend at the upcoming On-line retailing Conference which will take place on 10 and 11 of October 2012 at the Southern Sun Cape Sun in Cape Town.
This event will be highlighting the most important aspects regarding on-line retailing such as trends impacting on on-line retailing, Omni channel retailing, Multi-channel approach to growing on-line, the CPA & retail; and convenient & secure payments for internet shoppers.
Trade conferences International would like to welcome Thetha Media and Media Web as our media partners. We would also like to welcome Ideate’s very own Fred Roed, the Chief Executive Officer of World Wide Creative and Manuel Koser, Co-founder and Managing Director of Zando on board as prestigious speakers.
