DIGITAL EVENT: After the Apocalypse – How agile diversification can unlock the global D2C opportunity in the post-pandemic, post Brexit world

Join us on 25 March for an engaging digital roundtable with a luxury afternoon tea delivered to your home from Michelin Star restaurant Sketch


The global pandemic has changed the way we shop forever. With physical stores being closed for a large chunk of 2020, and UK consumer confidence plummeting, brands and retailers must look beyond their borders for new growth opportunities.

An international store front must be the focus for brands and retailers to acquire new customers and accelerate growth, but with many moving logistical parts, brands need to own the customer journey from beginning to end, to give the consumer faith in their purchase.   With e-commerce orders stuck at ports or suspended between the EU and UK as a result of Brexit – and customers hit with surprise added costs – the need to nail smooth cross-border commence is more urgent than ever.

This is not possible without using a specialist cross-border commerce company.  Brands must adopt a multi-national mindset and that’s why we’re bringing together a group of leading players for an exclusive knowledge-sharing and networking event to help them overcome any roadblock on their towards achieving this, and to inspire them for the world of possibility that awaits.”
