Announcement: We are pleased to announce the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan as a co-host to our speaker event! We look forward to networking with our colleagues from the CCCJ!
Increasing demand for e-commerce plays an important role in the Japanese economy, and service-oriented e-commerce alone accounts for $46 billion in revenue and the fastest growth rate at 11.3% per annum.
In this talk, Groupon Japan Country Manager Yasushi Okue will provide an exclusive look at the growth and future of the e-commerce online marketplace in Japan, and how organizations are adapting to evolving purchasing preferences while building customer loyalty and trust.
Topics to be covered include:
- The current e-commerce landscape (e.g. consumer lifestyle service sector)
- Unique market characteristics that support continued e-commerce growth
- The future of the e-commerce service sector, including challenges and opportunities
- Groupon’s rise in global/local strategic growth from the view of a US business operating in Japan
