The third edition of Lengow Ecommerce Day Paris, the annual e-commerce extravaganza that brings together guests from around the world, was very successful. #LengowDay was trending on Twitter as the third-highest ranking hashtag in Paris and over 650 people participated at the event on June 2: the largest amount in three years! We’re very thankful to all attendees, partners and speakers that made the day as special as it was.
50 speakers stepped on stage to provide online merchants with insights during keynotes, round-tables, masterclasses and workshops about current and future ecommerce trends. Thanks to everyone sharing photos and statistics during all of these presentations, everyone who wanted to attend #LengowDay but couldn’t were able to follow the latest news on Twitter.
This year, the keynote talks on the main stage in the Salon France were completely focused on international business. Lengow CEO Mickael Froger started things off with a keynote about ecommerce trends and an announcement of the new version of Lengow being launched on September 21, 2015.
Keynotes and roundtables were then followed by the participation of reknowned leaders who contributed their international ecommerce and shared their personal experience: Vincent Zou (Alibaba.com), Pavel Aleshin (Yandex), Sophie Ancely (PayPal), Grégoire Gimaret (Facebook), Guillaume Dainche (PriceMinister-Rakuten), Marc Menase (Menlook) and Aymeric Moser (Spartoo).
The roundtables and speed debates in the Salon Parisien allowed for discussions of different topics like business, marketing and international growth. Bazaarvoice, iAdvize, LeGuide.com, Stylight, Mirakl and Rue du Commerce shared tips and tactics about topics like ecommerce site optimization tools, personalization, marketplaces and recruitment.

Masterclasses, workshops and speed debates took place in salon 1 and 2.
