Online Retailer Roadshow is a one day online retail event visiting Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in the first week of June. The event is tailored for retail executives who are responsible for e-commerce activities, digital marketing and multichannel operations and want to learn what's on the horizon in the industry, and learn the methods, technologies and strategies being used by other online retailers. The event is open to retailers only.
There are some fantastic speakers presenting at the event. Bob Myer, an online retail industry veteran having worked for JCPenny.com, QVC.com and now Sheplers Western Wear Inc is presenting a keynote on multi-channel retail. John Winning, CEO of Appliances Online (co-incidentally we just bought a fridge for our new office from them) will be presenting a keynote on pureplay online retail. Then there are presentations from Paul Marshall of Salmat, Grant Arnott from Power Retail, Steven Noble of Forrester Research and Dan Ferguson from Vista Print.
Jodie and I are on a panel (Jodie for the Sydney event, me for the Melbourne and Brisbane events) in the afternoon titled: Futureproofing: What Every Retailer Needs to Know About the Next Five Years. Our co-panelists are Daniel McMahon from Dick Smith, Cameron Poolman from GraysOnline and Mark Cowan from Facebook - should be an interesting discussion! The day finishes with an evening drinks reception.
Online Retailer Roadshow have been kind enough to offer us 3 tickets (1 in each city) to give away to 22michaels readers, and a promotional code you can use to save $100 off the price of a ticket: DISC108.
To win one of the tickets, send me an email (email@example.com) describing in 50 words or less why you want to attend and what you hope to take from the event, and which city you'd like to attend the event in. We'll pick 3 winners by Tuesday next week so if you miss out you still have time to buy a ticket using the promotional code.
