A wide range of organizations from around the world have partnered to support Shoptalk Europe, including: the U.S. trade group, Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA); METRO Accelerator for retail powered by Techstars (the accelerator program of the German wholesaler and food specialist METRO); French retail accelerator, Lafayette Plug and Play; Danish eCommerce association, FDIH; Dutch eCommerce association, Thuiswinkel.org; Italian eCommerce association, Netcomm; and pan-European lobbying body Ecommerce Europe.

"We have created an exceptional and unique forum for the European retail and eCommerce ecosystem to interact in a meaningful way," said Anil D. Aggarwal, founder and chief executive officer of Shoptalk, parent of Shoptalk Europe. "An unparalleled group of senior-level executives from a wide range of industry verticals, stages and sectors are confirmed to attend, and we're confident that the content, dialogue and networking will help shape the future of retail and eCommerce."

In 2018, Shoptalk Europe will combine with Shoptalk U.S. to create the first global event focused on retail and eCommerce innovation

The success of Shoptalk Europe – and the enormous interest it has generated from around the globe – has demonstrated a need for one event that moves the dialogue beyond a single country, region or ecosystem. Shoptalk Europe and Shoptalk's U.S. event will therefore be combined to create the world's first truly global event for retail and eCommerce innovation, which will be held on 18-21 March 2018 at the Venetian in Las Vegas. The combined event will facilitate a comprehensive global conversation and bring together a diverse and currently fragmented worldwide community of innovators, featuring the leading technologies, trends and business models from all major global hubs.

“In 2017, we focused on developing the blueprints for the future of retail and eCommerce for the U.S. and Europe. We’re now in the enviable and unique position to create a single global conversation and community. We are excited to bring these initiatives together in 2018 and provide the worldwide retail and eCommerce ecosystem with the unprecedented opportunity to gain a global understanding of retail and eCommerce innovation as well as to join an entirely new global community of innovators,” said Aggarwal.

Those wishing to register for Shoptalk Europe, can do so at https://shoptalkeurope.com/. The details of the global Shoptalk event in March 2018 – including registration – are available at: https://shoptalk.com/.
