Keynote Case Study: Mobile Commerce As An Imperative: What We've Learned And Where It's Going

Wednesday, August 16: 11:05 AM - 11:30 AM

Naturally, we love a mobile-focused keynote. This case study from Marshall Porter, president of Spring, will detail how they first reimagined the retail experience for mobile, creating a personalized shopping experience that reflects how people shop. Spring’s marketplace includes more than 200,000 products from over 1,500 different brands, presenting them to the consumer in a way that is personal to them and their unique shopping style and behavior.

Retailers who aren’t focused on marketplaces will still have plenty to learn about the new reality of mobile commerce and ways they can tap into the mobile opportunity.
