The largest eCommerce virtual event is BACK on 2-3 March, 2022. If you attended DTCX events in 2021, you already know – you don’t want to miss out on THIS ONE.
DTCX3 will feature more than 50 leaders across the DTC eCommerce industry and focus on actionable tips for 2022 to get you equipped for this challenging year.
Brands have experienced massive growth amid the pandemic, and traditional retail organizations have been paying attention and incorporating D2C components. That has increased industry competition, making it even more essential for companies to stay on top of things or risk losing market share.
So how do you make sure your brand remains relevant this year? What industry changes will impact brands? What are the most critical variables and stats for driving sales in 2022? Top leaders will answer all of that and more.
We also wanted to use this platform to try helping Ukrainian children impacted by the war that is unfolding right now. DTCX donated $5,000 USD to UNICEF and we are encouraging you to also contribute and make a donation here to help Ukrainian children's dire situation. #StandWithUkraine
Donate to UNICEF to Help Ukrainian Children HERE.
