Once in a Lifetime Opportunity for CPG Brands

Build Your DTC Business Model

September 17, 2020 | 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM EST


The rise of online shopping via direct to consumer websites, marketplaces & alternative eCommerce channels is drastically changing consumer behavior (pandemic or not) & altered traditional sales trends. With all of this additional opportunity comes a ton of potential investment in order to remain competitive. 

This interactive discussion will provide detailed information on the pros & cons of developing an eCommerce enabled DTC website as well as an inside look at what it takes to create your own marketplace regardless of whether your organization is a brand, manufacturer or retailer. We will also address the importance of leveraging your website as an integral part of a holistic eCommerce strategy.

There is no cost to join. There are no Sales Pitches. No Service Providers.

This event is co-hosted by BWG Connect and VTEX.
