Speakers Comments

Mark Harrison
Head of Markets, International Post Corporation

“With the phenomenal growth in cross-border e-commerce, I’m very much looking forward to networking and presenting at eCom21. My presentation will highlight the growing importance of Asia in terms of global e-commerce, will identify the countries which are leading the online shopping revolution in terms of sales and propensity to shop online. I’ll explain how the postal sector is responding to these challenges, along with the lessons to be learned by other markets from these front runners”.

Vladimir Malugin
Regional Director, Chairman, PayPal Russia

“This is the second time I’ll be attending eCom21, which is a great place to meet and talk with other e-commerce professionals. This year I will talk about how financial technologies in different countries help small and medium businesses, as well as individual entrepreneurs build their online sales, especially in cross-border, and how the development of e-money is affecting financial inclusion of small companies. Looking forward to an interesting event!”

Sander Gansen
The Hustler (CMO), Shipitwise

“I think it’s a great initiative from eCom21 to bring together various ecommerce businesses and let them share their stories. At least, I cannot wait to learn from the likes of PayPal Russia and Yandex.Money. Meanwhile, it’s also a great chance to show others what kind of hustling we’ve done to get here”.

Michal Sadowski
Founder and CEO, Brand24

“I’m very excited for eCom21. We need more and more events that aim to become a bridge between West and East. Moreover, I think countries within the region need to stick together – exchange know-how, experience, best practices. This is the only way we will eventually start catching up with places like Silicon Valley or Israel”.

Kostas Rossoglou
Head of EU Public Policy, Yelp

“The eCom21 conference gives an opportunity to address a wide range of issues related to the development of e-commerce and to address the key challenges. Bringing together the business community with regulators, it promises to become a forum of ideas and solutions”.

Kęstutis Gardžiulis
CEO and Co-Founder, ETRONIKA

“Never has there been a more interesting time for e-commerce – it’s at a tipping point, bringing new tools, trends as well as issues every day. eCom21 is the place to meet the best expertsfrom all the fields needed for successful e-commerce – technology, communication, digitalization, fast-paced innovation, management and others”.

Victor Dostov
President, Russian Electronic Money Association

“What I like about the eCom21 conferences over the past 4 years is the people it attracts. Both experts on the stage and in the audience know what they are talking about, which inspires relevant and thought-provoking dialogue. This is what takes the market forward and ultimately brings better practices to real life. I look forward to eCom21 in 2016, so that we all can benefit from each other’s experience again”.

Sergey Kotyrev
CEO, Umi

“Though it’s my first time at eCom21, I can already mark an outstanding organisational approach, as well as a proper choice of speakers and topics. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone who intends to follow the trends and prospects of the e-commerce market, to explore where the market is going and which related directions one has to consider to stay competitive”.

Alexander Magomedov
Chief Commercial Officer, Yandex.Money

“eCom21 is a great event that defines the whole e-com ecosystem of the region. The conference provides a wonderful opportunity for those who are looking to learn about industry trends and hear insights from key players. Last year we were happy to see that people were keen on learning more about our payment service provider — Yandex.Checkout. We are looking forward to eCom21 this year in order to share the market knowledge we have and also to connect with colleagues and merchants”.

Vladimir Komissarov
General Manager Russia, DEAC

“This is the largest “must attend” event in the region – the conference not only explores e-commerce but also serves as an avenue for discussions and exchange of views on issues and challenges in business and commerce. Exceptional speakers and well structured content and format allow our company to benefit from networking with like-minded professionals. Small things matter – the organisers score high for attention to detail and we’re glad to be a part of it!”
