Observatory

Welcome to the Observatory

The NetComm Suisse Observatory is an international point of reference for information, trends and data about the e-Commerce and digital sectors. It variously commissions, directs and carries out a profound breadth of qualitative and quantitative research about online shopping in Switzerland and globally.

As part of its work, the Observatory also conducts Executive Workshops, bringing together leading figures from brands, retailers, manufacturers and investors to discuss and evaluate emerging data and trends from the digital world and to formulate best-practices for the future development of the sector.

Executive workshops

Executive Workshops are an invitation-only, knowledge sharing platform offered by the Netcomm Suisse Observatory. Each workshop involves around 10-15 executives and managers from top brands and retailers, affording them the chance to share experience and explore new data on implementing digital strategies and tools.
