Uniquely relevant to SA Ecommerce Marketing Best Practices SA 2016

What makes this conference unique is that 80 marketers told the Ecommerce Forum Africa (EFA), Nov 2015, what marketing related issues they wanted to know more about and rated them in order of usefulness and importance. Uniquely valuable briefs for the speakers and panellists and we have picked the cream of local ecommerce marketers to advise the delegates. Check the topics and the speakers and judge for yourself.
