Catering To The 2021 Retail Customer                  

March 29 - 30, 2021 | 12:00pm ET | 9:00am PT

Transforming Retail. Together.

For over 20 years, eTail has brought together retail innovators to hear inspirational tactical content paired with curated networking. For this month’s eTail Event, we continue to look at strategies to ensure 2021 will guarantee profits for your business. In 2020 retailers experienced an abrupt interruption to their business – revenue streams stopped, furloughs became the norm, cost reduction was top of mind. The biggest takeaway from last year was around a massive shift to eCommerce and digital adoption by consumers – as retailers experienced rapidly changing behaviors. Contactless and touchless became the norm – those that have adapted and continue to do so will thrive in 2021.  

The eTail March virtual event looks at how to accelerate digital transformation, incorporate event more innovation and experimentation to drive your business into the future.

Leading Content. Zero Cost. Zero Travel.

Actionable Tactics To Help You Thrive, Today

Our agenda is 100% focused on your biggest challenges and opportunities. You’ll hear from CEO’s, VPs and more - those that are in the trenches, doing the work. We cut out the fluff you get at other virtual conferences to give you tons of actionable strategies to increase your profits.


We Didn't Build This Overnight

We have been uniting the eCommerce and omni-channel retail community for the past 20+ years - Brands trust us to deliver well-researched programs that actually cover your biggest concerns.

Interactivity: In a Virtual Environment

Live chat, virtual Q&A, and more encourage peer to peer interactions. Ask questions, jot down notes, and get ready to implement takeaways.
