Why Attend Commerce Summit?

Commerce Summit is a global conference for ”Sellers”. Attendees will spend 3 days and 2 nights offsite, discussing about future prospects of eCommerce and current issues beyond industries which is an opportunity you might be missing on your daily basis. This will be a place to extend one’s knowledge and execution know-how for growth of your company and expand strong network within the industry. The compatibility of “conference” and “networking” in its highest quality is the fascination here.

Will Link Directly to Company Success.
Suitable for finding partners who can share and make progress hand in hand to achieve your target. Engage in discussions with the attending partner agencies to grasp their insights, solution methods, and utilization to foster your eye for choosing the right partner. Every year many business and partnerships develop during the summit.

Through various sessions and networking, we saw future guidelines as to what our company's situation should address. Food & Beverage Manufacturer

Establish Firm Business Network
The top executives from Japan and overseas will spend 3 days and 2 nights in a unique offsite environment, allowing them to connect with someone who may become a role of a consultant. Not only through discussions, we will provide opportunities for you to build reliable relationships at networking parties as well. It is a connection, beyond industries, of people facing the same challenges which you might not have had the chance to come across. Horizontal connection between Sellers is another fascinating point here at this summit.

It was great to hear concrete examples for cross-border eCommerce from someone who is actually facing the challenge in the field locally. Apparel

Experience Deep Discussion and Rich Insights
Not being confined with your daily work, lets you have full time to truly concentrate on the challenges you are facing at the moment.
Innovative ideas are brewed in unusual spaces...Through spending 3 days and 2 nights, networking with some of the most outstanding people, innovative collaboration will emerge from such environment.

It was good to hear sessions from both points of views of short-term and medium-to-long term perspective. I got to know what is to be started right away to get results, and what is to be approached with medium-and long-term vision.Electronics
