If you want to enter the world of e-commerce, it doesn't matter if your business is big or small - the door is open to everyone. But in the future development of the company and its long-term strategy, size definitely matters. How do you grow big online? E-commerce is a science and as such it has its own theory. What can the experts tell us, so that we don't just rely on our own "trial and error" algorithms? Can AI make our lives even easier? How much more digital can the user experience get? Are we getting close to the moment when humanity would like some "de-digitalization" and a return to live communication? Is the consumer fully immersed in the ecommerce world or the future of retail is in the seamless omnichannel shopping experience?
eCommerce leaders' behavior: mobile commerce, implementation of innovations, omnichannel approach, advanced communication, voice shopping, withstanding supply chain issues, emphasis on data protection
Consumer behavior: Today everything is digital, and our phone is a bank office, a supermarket, an insurance broker, a restaurant, and a travel agency all at the same time. What is the next step?

Participants: Anna Polischuk, Aleksander Terziyski, Nikolay Todorov, Kosta Jordanov, Stoyan Mitov, Alexander Botov
How tо grow from start-up into huge, scalable, and profitable businesses despite limited resources? How to be ready to handle increased demand, trends, and needs, even with the emergence of new competitors? The Scalability – or the ability to withstand pressure as a result of growth, without being hindered by resources or structure - continues to gain popularity, especially following the advancements in technology that ease communication to customers and increase the efficiency of doing business. Learn from successful entrepreneurs.
The Scalability as Competitiveness: The growth into a profitable company includes entering a large market and creating a niche for the company’s products, which pose significant competition to the incumbent businesses in the same industry.
From Great Ideas to Uniqueness: Innovative startups aim at not only creating a product for the industry but also creating a new industry. Scalable startups differ greatly from small businesses in the vision and model - a scalable business grows to dominate the market.

Participants: Andrey Lubenov, Vladislav Lazarov, Nicola Stojanow, Nikola Ivanov
Metaverses have existed for decades in the form of multiplayer online games. But we may soon enter an age of immersive experience hardly distinguishable from our real world. Gartner predicted that 25% of people will spend at least one hour a day in the metaverse by 2026. McKinsey's preliminary forecast shows the metaverse has the potential to grow up to $5 trillion in value by 2030. Organizations across industries have already been looking to metaverse components (extended reality headsets, blockchain and NFTs, IoT and cloud tech) - as a means of connection and new sources of revenue. That exploration continues in new ways as these developing technologies increasingly interconnect and mature.
From immersive entertainment to improved operations: business-focused metaverse use cases, both in the near term and in the future
Enhanced customer experiences: Advertising, branding and marketing potential of imaginary worlds
The metaverse economy: NFTs (nonfungible tokens or records of digital ownership stored in the blockchain) could be an important part of the metaverse economy, by enabling authentication of possessions and property.
