ECOMMERCE WEEK LA™ is a week-long exhibition showcasing businesses and sharing ideas on how to grow eCommerce brands, built by the people who do, for the people who do (or aspire to). It’s all about creating community and helping each other succeed!
Today, near-ubiquitous availability and access to the internet has given rise to a vast new marketplace for the ambitious entrepreneur to compete with big brands. With eCommerce sales expected to reach $4.9 trillion by 2021 globally, the opportunity to build on the world’s next gold rush is here and the prospect has never been more attainable.
Nowhere in the world is there more enthusiasm to capitalize on this dream than Los Angeles, CA. Los Angeles is the pulsing heart of the eCommerce industry, beating with new ideas and the right conditions to turn them into reality.
