Commerce and tech in 2020

Retail was already on the path to a high-tech future, but in the wake of COVID-19, the race to innovate is on. What originated as a supply shock has turned into a collapse in demand, touching nearly every sector. To survive this period of uncertainty, businesses must diversify supply chains and integrate digital tools. While omnichannel retailers shift focus to ecommerce, all business models can transform to ensure they are tech-enabled, resilient, and sustainable.

In collaboration with the FT, Checkout online event will leverage expert insights to tackle questions like:

  • How can BigTech be used by commercial businesses to navigate the crisis?
  • What will the post COVID-19 consumer look like?

We’ve enlisted top thinkers including Founder of, Jitse Groen, and Head of EMEA for Shopify Plus, Shimona Mehta to lead the way.

We know what you’re thinking: not another Webinar. Couch Conferences go beyond the online format with hands-on workshops, live interviews, and audience Q&As. Interact with other attendees on real-time discussion boards and expect a few TNW-style touches — digital disco, anyone?

This event is for you if you work in ecommerce, have your own web shop, or want to learn what a successful omnichannel strategy looks like in 2020
