“eTail Connect is a fantastic peer-to-peer networking event, providing the right mix of people and formats and topics that focus in on today’s digital challenges and opportunities. Hearing from, and speaking to thought provoking speakers, like minded individuals and retail peers is a rare opportunity, and one that deserves time and attention.”

What is eTail Connect?


Inspiration. Leadership. Relationships.

eTail Connect is the one-stop shop for senior eCommerce executives from the top 250 UK retailers. This interactive forum provides you with the opportunity to benchmark, share ideas, find solutions for your business and build lasting relationships. All in a warm, luxurious venue. This is unlike any event you've ever encountered.


Customised Solutions To Shape YOUR Business

Only the most relevant and innovative solution providers will be invited for you to meet and evaluate. We will also set up one-on-one consultative meetings for you; this unique part of eTail Connect saves you time by creating your own, customised technology store. Our mission is to make your life easier.


You're In Great Company

We've made this an invitation-only gathering for the most senior level eCommerce executives. Strictly limited to 75 leaders from the UK’s most successful and innovative retail organisations. Why? We want you to network with fellow executives whose problems are similar to yours and whose insights will drive success to your business. And you'll have fun doing it!
