GSI founder and CEO Michel Rubin stated, “Online retail is experiencing significant changes. To remain relevant, retailers and brands must keep their fingers on the pulse of what consumers want now. They must also stay on top of the direction in which the industry is moving and ensure that their businesses evolve.” Rubin continued, “The summit is an opportunity for our clients to hear from the leading minds in e-commerce and leave with the knowledge they need to have winning online businesses.”
