Tomorrow, Thursday the 14th of March, the Retail Without Borders conference opens it’s doors. Whilst delegates will largely be interested in the diverse range of marketplaces attending, there’s little doubt that Jon Snow’s panel session on trading in a post Brexit world will be of massive interest after last nights vote in Parliament, the vote coming tonight and the vote due on Thursday evening.
Held at the QE2 Centre, just opposite Parliament, the flags and protesters on both sides of the Brexit debate will set the scene as delegates arrive for the conference and there will be no avoiding Brexit.
Jon Snow will be joined by Chrystalla Spire, Group Legal Counsel We Are Pentagon Group, Simon Batt, CEO wnDirect, Murray Lambell, Vice President UK Trading, eBay and Claire Taylor, Founder & CEO Simply VAT. While the main focus will be Cross Border Trade in a post Brexit World, doubtless there will be some opinion and questions around what the next two weeks will hold for the country as a whole and businesses in particular.
Tamebay will be there and we’ll be talking to as many marketplaces and businesses that can help you expand around th world as we can fit in. We’ve already got some interesting discussions set up and we’ll share the opportunities over the next few days. However, we’d also love to meet as many retailers as possible and hear your views so if you spot Sasha or me make sure you catch us to say hello.
