For companies that want to operate economically and be successful in the long run, there’s no way of avoiding digital transformation. „Handelskraft 2017 – the conference for digital success“ provides both industry insiders and newcomers with a platform to get informed and swap ideas about about possible digital concepts. This year’s top themes do not only include e-commerce for B2B and B2C businesses, but also CRM systems, marketing automation, conversational commerce, microservices and, last but not least, the trend topic internet or commerce of things. Furthermore the speakers will explain how digital solutions can work out even with very special requirements, why you should sometimes allow yourself mistakes in the online race and what agile working with an agency can look like.
Besides futurist and author Gerd Leonhard – known for his inspiring and provocative future scenarios – this year’s line-up includes Alexander Schmelzl, Director E-Business Construction at BayWa AG, Dr. Robert Zorres, CTO of REWE digital, Oliver Dahms, Manager at Dahms solutions GmbH, and Swiss soccer expert and entrepreneur Urs Meier.
