While Indian e-commerce industry has witnessed rapid growth over the last few years, with the proliferation of the internet and the rise of low-cost smartphones, the best is yet to come. And although over 243 million internet users in the country is an impressive number by any standards (it is close to four times the total population of the UK), it only accounts for about 20 per cent of India’s population!
The industry is still in its early days and players are figuring out the best way to do business and expanding the market. Profitability is still a big challenge, and the flow of venture capital dollars has slowed down, with the exception of the top two or three players that have been able to raise large rounds of funding time and time again. Also, while the sector is poised for growth, concerns remain on when e-commerce businesses will finally see profitability?

Panel I: E-Commerce Play in India: Too expensive a bet or futuristic investment at a nominal price?
Year 2014 witnessed consolidation in the Indian e-commerce market with clear leaders breaking out of the pack in some verticals like kids products, furniture etc while a troika emerged in the horizontal e-tailing space. Both investors and strategic investors latched on to their horses having bet over a billion dollar or more each in the top three e-tailers alone. Be it one of the single biggest private funding round in an e-com firm globally, or Alibaba's biggest shareholder SoftBank drawing a big investment commitment for India and the single biggest M&A to date, Indian e-com saw it all. While action is getting hotter, we discuss the ground reality of what’s driving such investments, fundamentals behind the business, investor’s bullish attitude and future of ecommerce industry in medium to long term? While FDI will happen or not still remains a point of discussion, we discuss how FDI can help the e-tailors of all size & scale and what can be the repercussions?

Panel II: Is Consolidation the only way forward
With a lot of small/niche players shutting shop or being acquired by larger players in the past year and a half, is the sector finally moving towards maturity that experts have been talking about for so long? As valuations drop and the large companies gobble up their weaker rivals, is the sector finally primed for consolidation? Are larger firms looking out for niche & specialty players for acquisition? Is it turning out to be a win-win situation for both the parties? What are the lessons learnt?

Panel III: Impact of E-Commerce on Indian retail industry; bridging the online-offline gap
The Indian online retail market has been striding leaps and bounds over the past few years on account of digital revolution and has forced all leading offline players to go back to the drawing board to rethink their strategy. While a few offline retail players, so called as the early adopters, took the plunge to have an integrated omni-channel strategy in place, others are still deciding on how to go about it. With the debate around ecommerce being just an enabler & the real opportunity lying in creating brands to sell, we understand how major players/brands are making their mark online presence, what’s driving their omni-channel strategy, how are they planning to bridge the online-offline gap and secure their share of wallet?

Panel IV: E-commerce vs. M-commerce; the way forward
Once upon a time there was the brick and mortar store. Then came the e-commerce wave to eat away the businesses of populated stores! Moreover with the increasing size of mobile phone screens and decreasing cost of mobile data, the m-commerce phenomenon is here to stay. And with over 40 per cent of the traffic of leading e-commerce players already coming from mobile, how do firms find a perfect balance between e-com vs. m-com? As we see large population is m-commerce ready, what are the growing opportunities for consumer centric firms such as food outlets, banks, retailing, entertainment companies, payments firms; which were just limited to sales via desktop other than physical stores?

Panel VI: Customer loyalty in the digital world of e-commerce
With large ecommerce players being loaded with private investments and draining money in the tunes of crores on a daily basis to acquire new customers, how can science of loyalty practice help e-commerce players retain their much “expensively acquired” customers? What e-commerce players need to do retain these customers & get them to transact on their site time and again? How can companies turn buyers into loyal customers? Given Indian shoppers craving for touch & feel factor and security concerns, how can an e-commerce company build stronger relations with customer using loyalty programmes? By using loyalty programmes can a marketer turn a first time buyer into second purchase? How do we push the customer into a higher paying bracket?
