October will witness the biggest eCommerce expo outside London and the coming together of the leading online British businesses in the north.
On the 11th and 12th of the said month, more than 120 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors are expected to pack the event which is aptly dubbed as eCommerce Show North at EventCity in Manchester.
It will focus on the growth of eCommerce businesses in the north and their strategies in turning their local brands into a global success.
Myself and Matt are going to be there and we’re really looking forward to meeting people within our industry, to hear their stories and share our experiences as entrepreneurs as well.
Running an online business has its pains and joys, so this event is no doubt the perfect opportunity to work out fresh ideas that will enable businesses to continue to thrive in the face of challenges.
Talks on the future of UK eCommerce
The UK eCommerce market is going to double to £645 billion next year, and at the same time companies that invest in eCommerce can expect a 60% increase in revenue, according to industry experts.
CEOs and influencers from leading eCommerce firms in the north are going to take to the stage at EventCity to share how multichannel retailing is going to contribute to that, especially mobile commerce which accounts for 30% of all eCommerce traffic.
“The eCommerce Show North is really, really important for north of England. My advice to anyone who’s going to attend is to come full of expectations to meet some great companies, to learn lots and share some great experiences with other people that are there,” said Darren Ratcliffe, founder and director of Digitl, a Magento agency that is based in Manchester.

As always, to your continued success,
