E-nnovation is the new black

26 July 2018

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction”, A.Einstein

We’d like to begin with a thank you to all of our members and supporters for making the first half of 2018 one of collaborative success. As the leading non-profit association and voice in e-commerce and innovation in Switzerland, we have taken great strides forward in the past 6 months: pushing the agenda for more immersive educational events, setting up more inclusive and diverse forums for integration, and lobbying for better access to research and development within the field of digital and e-commerce innovation.

Our Fashion Innovation Week was attended by over 1,000 delegates, with 100 speakers all sharing best practise and knowledge from the very heart of the fashion industry leaders. Our Ladies in eCommerce and internationalization in e-commerce events were not only a true testament to some of the phenomenal talent within the industry here in Switzerland, but inspiring, energising and thought provoking for all. Finally, and possibly one of our proudest achievements, was launching the Netcomm Suisse Observatory, our research and insights arm focused on the Swiss e-commerce ecosystem.

As we enter the second half of 2018, we remain focused on raising the bar. The second half of the year will see an organisational restructure and investment here at Netcomm, with a larger, expert dedicated team you can look forward to new engaging content and the delivery of bigger better events from us. We hope to see you at our forthcoming E-luxury summit and our much anticipated E-nnovation week, where E-ommerce meets Innovation.  As always, we want to hear from you, so please take the time to let us know your feedback via info@netcommsuisse.ch
