What is eTail Australia?

The Retail Summit That Tops All The Others

From our beginnings in 1999, to becoming the most senior gathering of retail leaders in the world, it is fair to say we, like the retail industry, have come a long way.

By listening to our retail community during 6 months of in-depth research, 6X more than any other retail summit, we find out about the issues most affecting your business, helping us to design the eTail Australia agenda accordingly.

We gather the Founders, CEOs, CMOs, Heads of eCommerce, Digital Marketing and CX from Australia’s most successful retailers to discuss winning strategies and solutions to your key challenges. No commercials. No egos. We cut out the fluff so you can return to the office with detailed take-aways.

With over 250+ retail decision makers exclusively in one place at one time, this is THE meeting place to benchmark your business with the best and shape the future of your industry.

“I’m really excited to attend eTail Australia. The speaker list is second to none, and the topics are really relevant to the key issues facing retailers today.”
