Highly relevant to the industry, great networking opportunities. Beneficial to any significant major NZ Online Retailer. It's worth the time invested. 

Guy Hall, Online Director & Co-Founder,

It's great getting to meet with like-minded individuals striving for retail success in the NZ market. Seeing first hand the pain-points national brands are going through, and then hearing how they overcame hurdles and created small wins, is an incredible story. I'd recommend this to any up-and-coming retail marketer or tech manager. It was an invaluable trip

Zandri Spies-Clarke, Marketing Manager, Target Furniture

It was great to meet with other retailers and talk common issues and solutions and to hear what everyone else is doing. Great networking. The speakers were good and great to get NZ specific presentations and data from some of the speakers. 

Emma Epp, Head of eCommerce and Marketing, Postie

Two stimulating days in a beautiful setting connecting, learning and sharing with your counterparts across NZ retail. Come away reassured, reinvigorated and ready to take on your next digital/e-comm/retail challenge.

Lara Squires, Digital Media Capability & Direct Communications Manager, Countdown
