Your Marketplace Guide for Shoptalk 2022

Sara Matasci - March 9, 2022

Viva Las Vegas! Shoptalk 2022 is just around the corner, and here at Mirakl, we’re excited to attend Retail’s Big Reunion March 27-30 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. For those attending, we’d love to see you at the event (booth 2036) to show you how an online marketplace can empower your business to grow and scale in an increasingly digital landscape.

Now is the time

Consumer demands are rising, and only the marketplace model can offer the competitive prices, selection, and convenience today’s shoppers are looking for. According to The State of Online Marketplace Adoption, a global consumer survey dedicated to shopping trends, 70% of consumers worldwide believe online marketplaces are the most convenient way to shop, with two-thirds preferring sites with an online marketplace over those that don’t have one.

Meet us at Shoptalk: Schedule a meeting with a Mirakl marketplace expert today.

The narrative becomes even clearer when you focus on retail’s most committed eCommerce shoppers – those who shop online at least once a week. For these US “power shoppers” half of all their online shopping is already done through a marketplace, with 75% noting they wished more of their favorite retailers had an online marketplace.

To take advantage of this increasingly sticky platform, you need someone with not only the technology but also industry expertise, and a powerful ecosystem of partners and sellers to help launch and grow your marketplace at scale.
