Meet Other eCommerce Agency Leaders

Thursday 10th October 2024 – 1.30pm to 5pm
Shoreditch Treehouse, London

• Meet other eCommerce Leaders in a confidential setting
• Be privy to case studies and unique lessons from other growing agencies
• Break out of your cocoon and rub shoulders with other eCommerce agency owners

Join us in the fantastic Shoreditch Treehouse for an afternoon of confidential conversations with other eCommerce agency leaders – in partnership with Channable

The eCommerce landscape is evolving – or depending on who you ask, devolving – at a breakneck pace.

Agencies and their clients in the space are experiencing challenges they’ve never seen before:

  • Clients are tightening budgets and even pausing projects to explore in-house AI solutions, forcing agencies to redefine their offerings.
  • Organic search is growing more complex, while paid search costs are skyrocketing.
  • The rise of retail media networks and social commerce like TikTok Shop is making it harder for brands to capture consumer attention.
  • Agencies are struggling to deliver profitable campaigns as costs rise and margins shrink.

Everything is changing rapidly, and agencies need to adapt quickly. Some are struggling, but others are finding innovative ways to succeed:

  • They’re expanding beyond marketing to become strategic business consultants, helping clients navigate complex economic challenges.
  • They’re mining Amazon’s treasure trove of shopper and AI data to craft campaigns that beat standard offerings by up to 80%.
  • They’re exploring omnichannel strategies that meet consumers where they shop, whether that’s on Amazon, TikTok, or traditional eCommerce sites.
  • They’re doubling down on brand building and storytelling to differentiate their clients from the sea of generic products flooding the market.

At eCommerce Leaders, we’ll dive deep into these critical issues, exploring how to redefine agency value in the AI era, build resilient client relationships, and develop future-proof team capabilities.

Join us for an afternoon of candid discussions and practical insights to help your agency chart a course towards continued success in the changing world of eCommerce.

Meet people who are interested in your story

eCommerce Leaders is an afternoon that will help you get inspired, and meet other people you can learn from. We blend interactive talks and group discussions.

  • We dot you around the venue so you can interact – and we mix up the groups so you meet different people.
  • We poll you before the event to see what you want to talk about.
  • We make sure all the talks are original and interesting. We facilitate questions and reflections throughout.

Speakers will be announced soon…

Q: What actually happens on the day?

We start the event at 1.30pm, so try to arrive by 1.15pm.

The afternoon’s format is pretty simple: you will spend some time hearing from guests with interesting stories that you can learn from, and you will also spend some time in small groups discussing your journey with like-minded agency leaders.

The event is hosted by an Agency Hackers facilitator who makes sure that everybody with something interesting to say gets heard. (We poll attendees before the event, so we know who to “pick on” on the day.)

We will serve tea, coffee and sweet-toothed things to keep you going, but please eat a sandwich before you arrive. The schedule doesn’t leave us time to serve lunch, unfortunately.

Q: Who will I hear from? Who are the speakers?

The people you’ll hear from are the actual guests at the event.

We decide who to spotlight based on the information we capture in the weeks before. (Look out for our emails!)

We will publish the line-up a few weeks before, but mostly we hope that you will trust us to select interesting folk from our audience. We find that the people who choose to attend our events are overwhelmingly on fascinating journeys that will resonate with you.

Also, the “talks” aren’t really linear presentations. They’re more like structured case studies, with lots of questions and reflections from the audience.

You could potentially call them “fireside chats”, but these are not rambling cosy conversations. They are planned and structured . We put a lot of work into researching our guests, out of respect for your time.

Q: Who can attend?

This event is only for people who own or run an eCommerce agency.

Why? Well, the event only works if everybody broadly shares the same pains and challenges, so for that reason we ask that only the person invited attends. Sorry!
