250 Heads of eCommerce & Digital Marketing Come Together at eTail Asia 2018 in Singapore

250 Heads of eCommerce & Digital Marketing to gather 6th -- 8th March at the Sheraton Towers, Singapore

SINGAPORE, March 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 250 Heads of eCommerce & Digital Marketing from Asia's leading retailers, online pure plays and marketplaces are attending the 2018 edition of eTail Asia at the Sheraton Towers in Singapore, held from 6th -- 8th March. eTail Asia is where the top minds in retail meet, collaborate and learn about what's disrupting the industry today and what'll change tomorrow. eTail Asia is designed to build up the participant's business and profit by cutting out the fluff and providing content from retail innovators in the trenches.

From our beginnings in 1999, to running 9 eTail conferences worldwide in 2018, it's fair to say we, like the retail industry, have come a long way. We started before the dot.com bubble burst, we were there when Amazon first recorded profits, when Facebook was launched, when Apple released it's first iPhone, IPO in US history… the list goes on.
