Internet Retailing organises a number of events.We recognise the importance of face-to-face meetings, the experience of ‘being there’ and the ability to focus fully on an idea or issue.
We have a growing range of events and activities, created specifically for retailers. Below is the schedule of events for the coming months.
The title and theme for 2013 is:
360 Degrees of a Social Company – How social tools, technologies and thinking are shaping the next generation of successful companies and organizations
Nowadays, almost every FTSE 250 company is employing social media in their business planning and operations. It may be social media marketing, customer service, reputation management, community management or social business within the enterprise. Sometimes it’s a combination of all these strategies and the more companies embrace social media, the more they understand the value of integrating it throughout their business.
That’s why we are dedicating our 8th annual conference to explaining and demonstrating the 360 degree view of what makes a “social company”.
In this dynamic one-day conference you’ll learn best practice social media and social business strategy and you’ll see the case studies that will help you plan how to make “social” a success in your own company or organisation.
In less than a decade social media has transformed the way modern business is done, created whole new industry sectors and generated billions in deals, sales, mergers and flotations. Along the way companies and organisations as varied as Unilever, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, Salesforce, Citibank, Bupa, GE and Nokia have used social media to deliver measurable business success.
But that is just the start. Now, by piecing together the insight gained over the past decade from corporate social media programmes we are able to create a road map for the success “social companies” can achieve.

Launched in June 2009, the JumpStart events consist of short, sharp half day events taking an intense look at some key issues focusing upon identifying and presenting the key questions you should ask, rather than presuming to advance some generic, one-size-fits-all maxims. All solutions are individual, and they will help you get to the heart of the questions for you.
What will you learn?
How to approach procurement. Each company, as well as the opening presentation and chaired panels, will seek to draw out the key questions and approaches to procurement. What questions should you have asked yourself, your colleagues and your suppliers? What are the key issues to consider before choosing, during implementation and then in-life?
To supplement this insight you’ll be provided with the full data and presentation packs, but we won’t confuse ‘quantity of powerpoint’ with ‘insightful tips’.
Why you should attend?
The market in fulfilment and logistics solutions is changing rapidly. New competitors revise their offering and overleap established players; market leaders add capability, usability and cost-effective options; some features have become ‘standard issue’ whereas others could give a competitive edge for a period.
This intense half-day format will give you both insight, briefing and a chance to meet with other retailers. It will give you either a fast-track to create your own commercial procurement process, or even allow you to benchmark your existing or intended supplier against the market’s best offerings.
Who should attend?
The event is open to retailers only. Managers responsible for procurement, or in the functional area we’re covering are very welcome.
