DEPT® Commerce Day

An afternoon of commerce insight and inspiration, featuring speakers from brands including Gucci, H&M, Electrolux, eBay, Magasin and many more. See full programme here.

It’s never been a more exciting (or challenging) time to be in commerce. As the dust settles on the global lockdown-boom in e-commerce sales, commerce businesses are faced with a new set of challenges. Evolving customer journeys, the cookieless world, the rise of Web3 technologies; all of these things present both opportunities and challenges in how brands attract, engage and retain customers.

DEPT® Commerce Day is your chance to take a peek at the future of commerce and learn how to speed up, even if e-commerce slows down. We’re offering you exclusive insight and expert advice for what’s next in e-commerce across a spectrum of industries, from retail and fashion to consumer goods. 

It’s an event created by commerce people, for commerce people. From CMO, CIO and CTO, to e-commerce, IT and marketing managers, this event has something for everyone. Get ready for inspirational and actionable insights from the experts behind our changing internet, as they share solutions for the challenges brands are facing today, and inspire the experiences of tomorrow.

Featuring a host of brand speakers including Gucci, Vogue Business, C&A, Design Holding and Freitag, together with DEPT® experts, this is the perfect event to learn how to make your commerce business future-ready.

Key topics include:

Technology
Discover the tech that is dominating commerce in 2022 and beyond, from leading commerce platforms to headless solutions, composable commerce and more.

Marketing
Learn how to build an omni-channel commerce experience for today’s consumers, discover how leveraging creative automation can help you to scale campaigns at speed, unearth the top tips to maximise marketplaces, and be inspired by social commerce strategies.

Meta Festival

The world’s first 24-hour Metaverse festival


Finally, the Metaverse is here. And you are invited to pioneer this incredible new terrain with us.

Despite the fact that everyone is talking about “the Metaverse”, only a few people have actually experienced it. That’s why we decided to make it a reality for all brands and interested parties during a game-changing event. Bringing everything you need to know about Web3, NFTs, creative technology, and next-gen marketing. 

Meta Festival combines work, play, connection and fun. From Asia to Europe to the United States. Each and every timezone will have featured content that’s relevant to them, from live entertainment to mind-blowing talks. Making it the place to be for anyone, everywhere, all over the world. 

Meta Festival takes place in a virtual world called Metapolis, a one-of-a-kind, three-dimensional world where you can stroll around, bust out your favourite dance moves, connect with other festival-goers and, of course, fly!

1 Metaverse, 10 inspiring stages, 100 of the world’s leading Web3 experts. And, most importantly, your own personalised virtual self. 

To visit Metapolis, you don’t need a plane ticket, a passport, or a visa. All you need is a smart device and a reliable internet connection. The future is here; see you there!
