On 15th Jan. 2014, it was reported in The Guardian that total online UK sales rose 18% YoY in Dec. 2013 to £11.1bn (figures from e-tail industry body IMRG and advisory firm Capgemini) while sales via mobile devices were 6% of ALL retail sales, doubling to £3bn. With shoppers carrying the technology around in their pocket, retailers also have the opportunity to communicate with customers much more frequently, changing buying patterns. 2014 will be another year of major shift in retail, not least due to mobile technology.
It was high time for us at MoMo to stage an event on that topic, esp. since US experts Shopkeep POS (the first iPad Point of Sale System to go live on the AppStore, Jan. 2011) set up their European office in Belfast a few weeks ago (hosting us in their new offices) and Newry start-up Xoomr plans its national market launch on the same week as our event!
This is a very rare opportunity to hear from market makers with a global potential right on your doorstep, so make sure you register early and attend this event (free of charge thanks to Shopkeep and the ongoing sponsorship from Invest NI).
See you in big numbers on Monday 3rd Feb.!
