The B2B Summit

InternetRetailing Events is proud to bring the InternetRetailing B2B Summit to Berlin this January to provide a forum for top-level executives from leading B2B industries to address the challenges they face in transforming their businesses for the digital age.  

This highly immersive one day event will focus on successful innovation amongst the very best organisations, and will bring together high-level thinkers and practitioners for a dynamic and informative conversation.

Held under the Chatham House Rule this is an invitation-only event, which will discuss and debate new ideas, uncover real experiences and visions for the future of B2B ecommerce in a relaxed and open, knowledge sharing environment. 

The unique format of the summit is something that goes away from a traditional conference, in order to create constant peer-to-peer interaction, resulting in the exchange of knowledge and practical intelligence for immediate in-business benefit.

All delegates will be vetted as part of the registration process, and carefully chosen on their ability to contribute to the discussion.

Our Pedigree

The Internet-Retailing B2B Summit was borne from the immense success of the InternetRetailing Summit 2016 which attracted the crème of the multichannel world.   With lively debate and discussion, extensive exchange of ideas and profitable networking opportunities, it established itself as the place for the leaders in retail of the future to gather. 

Leading retailers including Argos, Zalando, VF Corporation, Alibaba, Adidas Group, Ebay and Boots took part in the inaugural InternetRetailing Summit, and discussed an extensive exchange of ideas for the future of European retail.
