An Exclusive Virtual Forum for Senior eCommerce and Digital Leaders from Brands, Manufacturers & Retailers

BWG's Evolution of Digital Commerce & Consumer Shopping Forum will be taking place in a virtual setting. This half day virtual forum will provide the same level of quality content as our in-person forums in NYC, which encourage senior eCommerce & digital focused professionals to knowledge share & network with like-minded industry peers.

BWG prides itself on delivering the highest quality content, providing actionable insights and enabling attendees to make meaningful connections with other leaders in the space. Each session will be moderated by a BWG Connect professional to ensure that our panel sessions remain on topic and that we are answering key questions that the audience truly cares about.

We strive to create an immersive experience that allows direct interaction between the audience & panelists, even in this virtual setting. Each panel will last approximately 50 minutes and we will reserve time for the audience to send in live questions all throughout the day. There will be absolutely NO SALES PITCHES permitted by any of our speakers. All audience members will have access to introductions to any of the panelists and we're always open to making connections to others within our network as well.
