Ecosystem of One: How Personalization and AI Are Re-shaping Digital Commerce

April 10th, 2018 – San Diego, CA


There is more consumer data available than ever before — from smartphones, smartwatches to self-driving cars. Retailers, payment networks, social networks and technology providers are incorporating cutting edge technologies like contextual data, biometrics and AI into the next generation of shopping platforms both in-store and online.

This conference explores the new forms of digital payments, data platforms, API’s and data analytics techniques involved in launching a world class data driven commerce platform. Learn from the leaders in O2O commerce, from retailers to digital advertisers to payment networks, using data to enhance their brand and engage with customers.

We encourage Non-Member companies to attend our conferences, but there is a one-time attendance policy in place. You may attend a CardLinx conference as a Non-Member only once.
