IMRG presents The Growth of E-commerce, a partnership with ITN Productions Industry News

LAUNCHING SEPTEMBER 2020

IMRG and ITN Productions Industry News are co-producing an online news-style programme The Growth of Ecommerce providing insight into the online retail market and helping retailers accelerate their online performance.

Ecommerce has exploded over the last decade, reaching £137.38 billion in 2018[1]. The Growth of Ecommerce will explore this changing and competitive landscape.  The programme will address the considerations dominating the industry including the cost of delivery, environmental impact, the changing role of the store, the ongoing issue of returns, the changing discount periods and the importance of data and analytics to drive insight. ​

​Anchored by an ITN newsreader, the programme will look at the future of online retail and the latest advancements in technology that are changing the face of the industry.  The programme will also highlight how IMRG supports the industry by providing data, insights and best practice for its members and how IMRG is keeping retailers ahead of the curve in what is still a relatively new sector.

The Growth of Ecommerce will launch at the Ecommerce Expo on 30 September – 1st October 2020 at the Excel Centre in London. The programme will be supported with a communications campaign featuring IMRG members and professional partners.

Justin Opie, Managing Director of IMRG said: “ecommerce has been the engine of retail growth for much of the past decade. Is this now under threat? We believe this is just the beginning. I’m excited to partner with ITN, and key contributors, to explore how ecommerce will help retailers to thrive in the coming decade”

Elizabeth Fisher-Robins, Head of Industry News, ITN Productions said: “We are delighted for the opportunity to partner with IMRG to raise greater awareness and understanding of the ecommerce industry and to provide a platform to better equip retailers for online success.”
