E-Commerce Conference 2014

E-Commer onference 2014
Expanding Horizons and Unleashing Opportunities
14 August 2014 | Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur

 

Electronic Commerce or e-Commerce is loosely defined as the selling and buying of goods and services, be it conventional or digital, through the internet. The flexible framework of e-Commerce encompasses digital marketing, mobile commerce, social commerce, automated data collection, electronic data interchange and electronic funds transfer amongst others.

 

Malaysia’s enabling regulatory environment, strong banking sector and high internet and mobile penetration rates are highly conducive to e-Commerce. Furthermore, ICT infrastructure has been earmarked for an investment boost next year with the government pushing towards a digital economy via the Digital Transformation Programme (Digital Malaysia) spearheaded by the Multimedia Development Corporation, which has identified e-Commerce as a sub-sector for further growth. Euromonitor International expects the Malaysian e-commerce market to grow to RM1.9billion by 2016.

 

Given its flexible framework, e-Commerce has vast application possibilities across businesses and industries such as retail, tourism, healthcare and financial services. Furthermore, e-Commerce encompasses a large ecosystem of supporting activities such as payment gateways, information and communication technology, and security and fraud prevention solutions.

 

Key issues that will be addressed at this conference include the outlook for Malaysia’s e-Commerce space, the need to increase the involvement of SMEs in e-Commerce, the exciting opportunities opened up by m-Commerce, the growing emphasis on data integrity and security and also the sharing of experiences by pioneers who have succeeded.

 

This conference is intended as a timely platform to provide industry updates, expert insights and practical knowledge, and also as a conduit for networking, sharing and forming strategic partnerships amongst e-Commerce pioneers and thought leaders as well as business owners and senior executives of public and private enterprises involved in e-Commerce and its supporting activities.
