The format of the IR B2B Summit is like no other event you have been to - With lively debate and discussion, extensive exchange of ideas and profitable networking opportunities, the IR B2B Summit establishes itself as the place for the leaders in digital B2B commerce of the future to gather.
Over 65 delegates focused on digital commerce for B2B attended the European summit in 2017, hear what they had to say about this unique and exclusive event.
It was really interesting, I met a lot of really nice people, I had good talks, I really enjoyed my time so far.
It’s been great to talk to people, not feel rushed to do that as well and build up a relationship over time.
It’s really great to get in touch with the people, and be able to talk with them for 5 mins, 10 mins, 20 mins and everybody has an open mind to really discuss innovation and trends of next year. I like the format, especially this interactive dialogue that everybody, including the sponsors, have at this kind of event.
We have had a great time, I think a lot of it is to do with the network that you create. I think it’s been a wonderful community of like-minded retailers with that digital slant.
We have met with all the retailers we had planned, we had some really interesting conversations, we talked about the different challenges they faced which we think we would be able to help them with.
Favourite part of the B2B Summit for me was meeting lots of new people, really senior executives from the digital space of really interesting companies. It’s a nice spread of different industries and also interesting to see that they face the same challenges.
The companies that attended this conference are very unique, I felt like it was a special club. We met the right and relevant people for our business and it was very helpful to talk to the right decision making people.
It’s different from other conferences that I’ve been in because it’s much more interactive…We still continued to talk when the sessions were over, so it just shows you that there’s a lot of information to be shared and had with each other.
The format of the summit is very interactive, I enjoyed it very much. We had a lot of opportunities to discuss the topics based on the experiences and sharing best practises, and also sharing the challenges we’re facing. That’s actually the most valuable part of the Summit, to learn from each other.
