Tamebay at Internet Retailing 2018: Brexit and marketplace sellers. #IRX18

No primary category set

The Tamebay editors will be attending the annual ecommerce gathering at the NEC in Birmingham come the 21st and 22nd of March. Maybe we’ll see you there? If you’re a attending we’d be happy to meet up and chew the fat, hopefully over a coffee or beer, and find out all about your online retailing enterprise. Maybe we’ll see you at the After Party? #IRX18

You can read all about the Marketplaces stream here.

They explain the purpose of the Marketplaces stream at the Expo on that page:

This track looks at two key growth areas for eCommerce; marketplaces and B2B. The marketplaces session in the morning focuses on helping you understand how to drive and sustain real international growth through a successful marketplace strategy and how you can expand through creating your own marketplace.

Of particular interest to ecommerce merchants who read Tamebay will be the talk from Nikhil Amin who is the Head of Amazon Business 3P in the UK. His theme is Our Vision For Amazon Business And How We Are Approaching It and he promises insights about how Amazon Business is:

– Understanding and meeting B2B customer expectations
– Why become a seller on the B2B Marketplace
– Simplifying the seller journey

And I have an opportunity to speak at #IRX18 too and I plan on discussing online marketplaces in Europe and how Brexit might have an impact there. It’s a complex arena. Not only are there a stack of options and opportunities that can be embraced (eBay and Amazon are not the only shows in town) but I suspect that even after Brexit trade between the UK and EU won’t be impossibly difficult, not least because the marketplaces will grease the wheels. People all over the EU want the fantastic goods that UK sellers have on offer and they’ll seek to keen the supply flowing. See you there!
