Executive Panel Discussion: Best Buy Canada, Madewell, & Maisons du Monde Discuss New Marketplace Data

In this on-demand Platform Pioneer executive symposium, you will hear the results from the first-ever Enterprise Marketplace Index by Mirakl, the largest and most comprehensive analysis of third-party marketplace data in the industry. Using data from 60 global retailer marketplaces, generating billions in GMV across more than 50,000 sellers offering nearly 70 million products, the Enterprise Marketplace Index benchmarks the state of enterprise marketplaces today.

The marketplace model is behind the exponential growth of some of the world’s largest and most successful eCommerce giants, driven by consumers seeking greater selection, convenience, and competitive pricing. In this new era of eCommerce, leading retailers and brands are rising to the challenge, launching enterprise marketplaces of their own to deliver on customers’ rising expectations. They’re also gaining the benefits of scale and agility, ultimately driving real growth for their businesses.

Be among the first to discover the numbers behind the exponential growth of enterprise marketplaces and hear from three Platform Pioneers – Best Buy Canada, Maisons du Monde, and Madewell – on how the marketplace model has impacted their businesses. Watch the on-demand recording to learn:

  • How enterprise marketplaces measured up against first-party eCommerce during Q4 2020
  • The revenue impact of expanding the seller network of an enterprise marketplace
  • What enterprise marketplaces contribute to retailers’ overall online traffic growth
  • The bottom line on revenue growth with the enterprise marketplace model
