How technology can shape the future of ecommerce in Manchester

Pubished 24th September 2021

In recent years, some of the most recognisable ecommerce fashion brands have been taking the UK and overseas by storm, with one thing in common - they were born in Manchester. Over 3,000 eCommerce related businesses are based in the city, more than in anywhere else in the UK, from large businesses to fast-growing start-ups.

The COVID-19 pandemic created a huge boom in online shopping. In February 2021, 75% of UK shoppers said they had been shopping more online, compared to before the pandemic. An estimated £113bn was spent online during 2020 in the UK, an annual increase of 48% (compared to an average annual increase of 13% in the previous four years).

So where does the sector go from here?

ECOM sponsors Manchester Digital’s new Ecommerce Forum event in Manchester city centre on 30th September 2021 to find out.

Launching ahead of Black Friday sales and the holiday season, this first prestigious event will cover the technology shaping the future of the sector. Join in and ask questions to a panel of industry experts and be around those driving the growth of the industry in Greater Manchester.
