This boutique event, held on 10th March in Zurich, offers an afternoon of invitation-only workshops on the topic of e-Commerce and internationalisation. Hosted in the offices of a NetComm Suisse Associate, Rackspace, the day will come to an archetypically Swiss close with a soirée of fondue and raclette.
Our expert speakers will discuss:
The global trend for online shopping is constantly heading upwards with savvy consumers looking beyond their national borders to find the right product. The level of potential foreign consumers interested in buying from Switzerland is high, particularly from Germany, France and the USA. The “Swiss factor” and its reputation for high quality products, reliability, efficient logistics and payment security means the sky really is the limit for Swiss e-Commerce. Internationalisation does however come with its own set of challenges, from logistics to website usability, and fiscal and technological issues. This event will touch on all of these points and conclude with a look towards the future of e-Commerce.
NetComm Suisse Associate Rackspace, is an open cloud company providing managed and hybrid hosting.
