Impulse Event: E-Commerce and Security

Customer Centricity in E-Commerce and Security |

Examples across Europe

E-commerce is increasingly important for small and large businesses alike. While many enterprises find that e-commerce can be a profitable way of reaching customers or sourcing supplies, many enterprises also face substantial challenges and issues when doing e-commerce. Europe - the subject of this Impulse Event – offers extremely large domestic markets that are currently experiencing strong economic growth.

Impulse Event: E-Commerce and Security

E-commerce and further digital tools pave the way to international growth, facilitating marketing and sales and providing an added value in particular for distant markets. Building on online platforms, innovative business models become possible that would have been out of reach for SMEs with limited resources only a few years ago, whether in B2B or B2C. However, entering a new market remains complex – regulatory and cultural differences require special attention.

Swiss SMEs are still not exploiting the full potential of the cross-border online business. The aim of this event is to present opportunities for SMEs from Switzerland and Lichtenstein, examples of successful businesses internationalising and also some learnings for the audience regarding e-commerce and security in a B2B and B2C environment.

This event is suitable for companies which are interested in the European Market and are looking to understand more about opportunities in e-commerce as well as companies with security solutions applicable to e-commerce.

Be sure to reserve Wednesday, September 6, 2017, when Switzerland Global Enterprise invites you to attend «Impulse Event: E-Commerce and Security» in Zurich. You can look forward to an exciting morning.
