Altimeter’s First Conference: The Rise of Social Commerce

Rise of Social Commerce, an Altimeter Conference

Join Altimeter Group’s first conference: “The Rise of Social Commerce” on Oct 6-7, at the Palo Alto Four Seasons.

Commerce has changed –companies must catch up

Shoppers want to belong. They want to be heard. They crave a better buying experience. Power is shifting from the retailer to the shopper. Social commerce is filling the void between clicks and bricks to deliver a personalized experience. Join us on October 6th and 7th in Palo Alto, CA to understand how to leverage these shifts to improve your brand.

Social Commerce redefines the buying experience. When it is done right, customers have a voice. They are connected in new and exciting ways. Brands become more personal.  Technologies are emerging to answer the challenge. Point of Presence (POP) is combining with Point of Sale (POS) to influence, persuade, and guide shopping. Artificial reality and virtualization is enhancing interaction. Social media is evolving to social commerce to improve the in-store experience. Attend this event to understand how companies are capitalizing on these trends to influence shopping on mobile devices, automate check-out and link the voice of the customer to the value chain.
