About

We are living in unprecedented times and hope this finds you and your family safe. At Digital Commerce 360, we wanted to take bold action and virtually bring together our community.

We have surveyed over 300 retailers about how they are tackling COVID-19 including financial implications, ecommerce sales and supply chain challenges. Our survey of 1000 consumers will shed light on ecommerce and in-store buying behavior, omnichannel’s critical role for retail and the shopper activities that are being adopted in this new world.

Over the next few months, we will bring together retailers and thought leaders in our industry to share what’s happening and how to smartly navigate their businesses through this turbulence.

To connect our community, we will solicit questions from attendees before and during the webinars that will make these calls a not to be missed experience.

This webinar series will be moderated by 2 industry veterans, Lauren Freedman and Don Davis.
