E-Commerce Ops Summit
Our E-Commerce Ops Summit event is a one-day immersion into how top e-commerce companies assemble and manage the digital teams that operate their e-commerce sites.
The E-Commerce Ops Summit is a one-day executive-level consulting event led by Six Vertical senior leadership. The day includes insightful discussion about the inner-workings of the digital teams behind some of the best e-commerce sites in the world.
We will teach you how leading brands, both B2C and B2B, build a culture of experimentation to gain a deep understanding of their in-market customers. We walk you through recent case studies and reveal the day-to-day operational models behind market-changing e-commerce sites.
“The E-Commerce Ops Summit was created to teach digital leaders where they need to focus their attention and investment to create a digital team capable of operating a competitive e-commerce channel.”
