Join ALDE Party’s event on the future of e-commerce

We are happy to invite you to our next Stakeholder Series event. In coordination with Shopify, we will hold a discussion on the future of e-commerce in Brussels on Wednesday 16 November at 8:00 CET.

Through increasing digital adoption, and the influencing factors of COVID-19, e-commerce has seen rapid expansion with both consumers and businesses adopting digital mediums to engage. Globally, e-commerce is projected to account for 20.4% of global retail sales. In Europe this is worth over €797 billion, with 75% of internet users having purchased goods or services online. No longer bound by a physical presence, new start-ups and SMEs hold opportunity to expand beyond their regional and domestic markets at a scale not seen before.

During this event, speakers will discuss what the future of e-commerce may look like, what challenges this growing market faces and what opportunities lay ahead.
