Future of Furniture E-Commerce Mixer, Presented by Amber Engine

Social

The Point (on Commerce Ave, one block from the Transportation Terminal)

Neighborhood: Commerce Concourse

E-commerce has gone from a thing of novelty to necessity in the furniture industry. Customers now expect everything from AR applications to borderless access. Brands aim to meet these expectations, but a pandemic and the resulting logistics crisis and lagging access to materials created longer lead times than ever. The “instantaneousness” of e-commerce has been particularly hard for furniture brands to achieve. Come to the Future of Furniture E-Commerce Mixer to explore these topics and more with peers and partners in a relaxed environment. If you are the master magician of e-commerce for a supplier, not only is Amber Engine inviting you to attend, this will be a networking opportunity you won't want to miss.
