B2B Next 2020: Accelerate Change and Embrace the Ecommerce Challenge

Tuesday, September 29 – Wednesday, September 30 | 11:00 am – 4:30 pm Central Time

COVID-19 has radically altered the B2B commerce landscape. It’s forced manufacturers and distributors to completely reformulate key Go-To-Market strategies and greatly accelerate digital transformation plans.

B2B companies need immediately-useful advice as well as guidance for a changed future. B2B Next 2020 will deliver that and more with exclusive and unrivaled guidance from top-tier analysts, industry-leading B2B ecommerce practitioners and industry experts.

Our roster includes seven high-profile keynote speakers and over 90 of the industry’s most influential B2B ecommerce executives. These experts will share practical strategies and best practices for how B2B businesses of all sizes can succeed in today’s digital-first environment.

“We see the seismic change that manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers are experiencing now in their ecommerce business,” said Andy Hoar, co-founder of B2B Next and CEO of Paradigm B2B. “B2B Next has the guidance they need now and the insider view on future opportunities in a radically-transformed environment.”

Seven industry-leading keynote speakers including WW. Grainger CEO and chairman Donald D.G. Macpherson, Graybar CEO Kathy Mazzarella, Dawn Foods CEO Carrie Jones-Barber and PPG executive Tim Knavish will share strategic thinking on the forces pushing B2B companies in new directions and how they must respond.

More than 70 of the country’s most influential B2B ecommerce executives will offer advice and best practices on the biggest issues facing B2B ecommerce professionals now. Case studies, workshops, and interactive panels will feature:

  • New proprietary research on the state of B2B ecommerce and where it’s headed
  • Analysis of what the new B2B buyer demands online
  • Data and perspective on why online B2B marketplaces are exploding
  • How ecommerce technology investment will shift in response to new business priorities

“We’ve seen an explosion in videoconferencing as everyone adapts to the new normal. B2B Next has researched the best technology options and is ready to deliver our agenda in a seamless virtual experience,” said Molly Love, co-founder of B2B Next and president and CEO of Vertical Web Media.

The 2,000 industry professionals expected to gather virtually at B2B Next will also share experience and perspective on the future of B2B’s $1.3 trillion digital global marketplace—what existing trends could be accelerated, what new ideas will evolve into trends and what new needs could become opportunities.
