GENEVA, Switzerland, (ITC News) – Online marketplaces have driven the development of e-commerce since its earliest days: offering platforms that create opportunities for sellers of all sizes to come together online, overcome barriers of trust and successfully complete business transactions.
Today, they are among the most important actors in e-commerce and their economic impact and market strength have led to concerns that they may have become too powerful with implications for competing businesses, workers and the environment.
But, how can the benefits of marketplaces be more fairly shared?
Celebrate e-commerce with the International Trade Centre on ecomConnect Days this October for a two-day interactive event and immerse yourself in inspiring conversations about the growing role of marketplaces as hubs that drive global connection and growth.
Access the full agenda and register here to participate in the event!
We will be leading conversations on how marketplaces can become more inclusive by fostering global connections, particularly in developing and least developed countries, through workshops, panel discussions, live interviews and more!
The event is organized by the ecomConnect Programme, which is the e-commerce initiative at the International Trade Centre – the joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organisation.
