Online Shopfest - 2013 eCommerce Boom

We kick off 2013 talking about the future of eCommerce with Charlie Bodycote, former CTO of Figleaves.com, Europe’s leading online lingerie retailer, and now the Director of Online Technology and Operations at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.

Charlie has been involved in building every aspect of eCommerce in both organisations, from start-up to global operation, so has deep insights of “pure-play” and “omni-channel” retail.

Come share your inner shopaholic with local internet entrepreneurs and digital media executives, mixing from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at Bisous, 9/F, LKP Tower, 33 Wyndham Street on Wednesday 23rd January, 2013.
