 Presentation by SCALERION – ‘Retailers earn more with Scalerion!’

 10:30 am – ‘Altes Kesselhaus’

Speaker: Thomas Wetzlar, Managing Director of SCALERION

For quite some time now, companies like Zalando, Amazon and Otto have no longer been earning their money as classic retailers, but predominantly as marketplaces. Free of risk, they are turning their access to customers into money and, with every sale of their marketplace participants, also learning which goods they should be buying in the future. With Scalerion, a technology is now available that enables every retailer to also become a marketplace themselves, without any additional costs or risks. In this presentation you will find out how Scalerion is empowering retailers to connect with manufacturers and distributors in new ways and impress end consumers with a stationary shopping experience!
