These days, business-to-business organizations seem under siege and blitzed on all sides. The COVID-19 pandemic will continue to hamper business and economic growth for the near future, even despite the trillions of dollars the federal government has already pumped into the public health crisis to develop effective vaccines and testing and bolter consumer spending.
Rapidly rising interest rates, a potential recession, ongoing supply chain disruption, and the threat of a long-armed conflict in Ukraine also makes businesses of all sizes want to hunker down and wait for the economic storm to pass.
But in an age of digital transformation and commerce, one trend is clear: Business buyers are becoming digital-first customers, and in times of ongoing economic uncertainty they want more, and not less, ecommerce to meet their rapidly changing needs.
Where organizations of all sizes can come to network and get answers to tough digital challenges is EnvisionB2B, the in-person conference and exhibition scheduled for June 8 to 10 in Chicago.
It begins with executives who are among the most notable and influential thought leaders in B2B ecommerce — keynoters W.W. Grainger Inc. CEO DG Macpherson; Xometry Inc. CEO Randy Altschuler; Kellogg vice president, global ecommerce Rob Birse; and Global Industrial Co. CEO Barry Litwin. Attendees will hear in detail the state of digital commerce, what the future holds and what forward-thinking ecommerce companies are doing to stay on top of challenges and seize opportunity online.
B2B organizations of all sizes are wrestling with serious questions these days, such as: How do we deal with ongoing supply chain disruption while at the same time meeting the expectations of demanding digital-first customers?
