Hong Kong eCommerce Day 2023

Hong Kong eCommerce day is back for its 6th edition! We’re pleased to have support from Pickupp Hong Kong as co-organizers, and SleekFlow and Boutir as event partners.

🚀 What's Next for eCommerce, Post Pandemic Hyper-Growth?

eCommerce businesses experienced record sales over the last 3 years, thanks to pandemic-induced demand. This shift in consumer habits translated into skyrocketing growth rates for online retail, seeing a 55% increase in global online spending.

But as we re-emerge on the other side of the pandemic, this era of effortless hypergrowth is showing clear signs of slowing down.

Pickupp, SleekFlow, and Boutir are here to teach you how to stay on top of it all, maintain growth, and keep ahead of the competition. Join us to hear best practices, emerging trends, and case studies from 3 major players in the Hong Kong eCommerce scene!

🔥 Get ready to ask your burning questions, find expert solutions, and network with others in the eCommerce community!
