About E-commerce Berlin Expo

A leading international e-commerce conference, E-commerce Berlin Expo is a gathering of digital leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs. The event will take place on the 23rd of February 2023 at STATION-Berlin. We have an impressive line-up of speakers from around Europe who are leading experts in their respective fields – so you can expect some fascinating insights.

What is the process for selecting our speakers?

We always seek speakers with considerable expertise in their fields, but at the same time – they must be dynamic and innovative. It is our goal to create a conference that goes beyond regular e-commerce strategies and discusses new technologies and future trends as well.

Attendees are always the focus of our efforts.

#1 Call for Papers winners

The first group of speakers announced for the E-commerce Berlin Expo 2023 are the winners of the Call for Papers. This is an annual event that invites e-commerce experts from all over the industry to submit their proposals for talks. Public voting, and then a panel of judges, decide which proposals are the most interesting and insightful, and these are the talks that get selected for the event. This year, there were over 500 submissions, and the judges had a tough time narrowing it down to the final selection. But they’ve done it, and we’re very excited to announce the following talks as part of the E-commerce Berlin Expo 2023:

  • ADFERENCE x SNOCKS | Florian Nottorf and Johannes Kliesch | Mit smarten Amazon Ads zur Socken-Million: die SNOCKS X ADFERENCE Story
