In this Virtual Booth Hangout, we'll cover:

  • A POV on the status of commerce businesses in these uncertain times. We will share data and discuss what it means.
  • A discussion about where we go from here, and what to focus on
  • An update on Bloomreach and how we can help
  • Audience Q&A

Like many, we were very disappointed when Shoptalk was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, mostly because we were looking forward to the opportunity to spend time with customers and partners. This year in particular, we have a lot to share in terms of innovation, with a focus on helping customers drive exceptional commerce experiences. 

And since we will not get the chance to meet you in person in Vegas, we are bringing the booth online!

We hope you'll join us for our live Virtual Booth Hangout on Wednesday, April 1.
