E-Commerce track at Drupal Europe 2018

The e-commerce industry continues to grow rapidly year over year, bringing more merchants online and driving larger profits. With that growth comes the increased need for rich content, innovative product merchandising, and integration into an ever increasing number of third party sales, marketing, and fulfillment tools. Drupal has always excelled as a platform for building unique customer experiences, and it continues to come into its own as an adaptive sales platform via projects like Drupal Commerce.

About industry tracks

As you’ve probably read in one of our previous blog posts, industry verticals are a new concept being introduced at Drupal Europe and replace the summits, which typically took place on Monday. At Drupal Europe these industry verticals are integrated with the rest of the conference — same location, same ticket and provide more opportunities to learn and exchange within the industry verticals throughout three days.

Now is the perfect time to buy your ticket for Drupal Europe. Session submission is only open for a few more days so please submit your sessions and if encourage others who have great ideas.

Please help us to spread the word about this awesome conference. Our hashtag is #drupaleurope.
