In less than two months, policy makers, merchants and stakeholders from all over Europe will gather in Hotel Arts, Barcelona, to discuss the future of cross-border e-commerce during the Ecommerce Europe Annual Conference 2015.

Vente-priveé.com is global leader in the sector and sells exclusively to its 16 million members in Europe. Mr. Court will discuss his daily experiences in leading large cross-border operations. He will highlight the biggest barriers to cross-border e-commerce he faces, and most notably the solutions Vente-Privé has found to tackle these.

Another new speaker, Mike Jennings, will take part in the Annual Conference in a panel reflecting on the outcomes of the Ecommerce Europe Survey “Barriers to Growth”.
