The full agenda for the eTail Canada conference has just been announced, taking place in Toronto from May 16-18, 2017. The event will feature high-level networking and extensive thought leadership programs, backed by an impressive speaker faculty from the top retailing brands in Canada and the United States. 

Interestingly, the largest Canadian online retailers are growing faster than their U.S. counterparts, in large part by selling aggressively to U.S. consumers while benefitting from less intense online competition for the business of Canadian consumers. eTail Canada brings together the biggest retailers from both Canada and the U.S. to network and discuss the challenges and opportunities presented a borderless e-commerce landscape. Themes that will be explored this year include building an online marketing mix that drives business value, mobile optimization, creative content creation, optimized in-store experience, borderless business, breaking down silos and more.
