“Elevated Insight” is the theme of the National Retail Federation’s annual BIG Show next week, and eBay Inc. will have that in spades at our booth.
The BIG show is NRF’s flagship industry event held annually in New York City, and this year, all of eBay Inc.’s different business units, including eBay Marketplaces, PayPal, eBay Enterprise and Magento, will be demonstrating our knowledge of — and solutions for — the ecommerce space at our booth on the EXPO floor (Booth 4245). Not only will we have experts on shopping and payments, but we’ll also have solutions architects ready to help retailers of all sizes figure out the right platforms for their businesses. To help illustrate the breadth of our offerings, we’ll be offering customers and passersby an opportunity to interact with our Interactive Connected Glass, featuring storefronts with Rebecca Minkoff and TOMS. We’ll also have a PayPal Shopping Counter, where you can buy assorted merchandise with PayPal Here, and be hosting a PayPal passport contest. And if you’re looking to satiate your sweet tooth, we’ll also be presenting the Momofuku Milk Bar, where you can pick up sweets and coffee.
eBay Inc. also has a prominent presence on NRF’s keynote and breakout session schedule. On Monday January 11, eBay Inc. Head of Retail Innovation Healey Cypher will be speaking as part of the “Mobile Innovation as a Roadmap to Customer Success” panel (2 p.m. in Hall A, room 1A 06-08), and sharing his wisdom about how best to create innovative and customer-centric approaches to supporting customers’ mobile lives. At the same time, Ben Pressley, Head of Enterprise Strategy and Business Development at Magento and John Sheldon, Global Head of Strategy at eBay Enterprise, will be speaking at the EXPO stage on Level One on how “Redefining the Customer Experience Gives a Whole New Meaning to Window Shopping.” Then, on Tuesday, Don Kingsborough, VP of Retail and Prepaid Products at PayPal, will be speaking on the panel “Win, Lose or Draw — Outlook for Retail Payments” and discussing the key drivers of the payment evolution and the factors that will help determine the platforms and processes the will eventually succeed.
