Techcircle India Ecommerce Summit 2016

Ecommerce in India has seen unprecedented growth in the last five years with at least $6 billion invested into the sector and large, deep-pocketed international players coming into the mix. As a result, a whole new ecosystem of enablers has flourished, dubbed Ecom 2.0 and Ecom 3.0, as specialised vertical and service ecommerce, curated marketplaces, on-demand logistics, warehousing and automated solutions providers, and pure-play technology enablers have taken root.

With the sector growing, as number of technological innovations are standing out from the clutter. But mounting losses, high cash burn and steep discounting are matters of concern. It is in this backdrop that, part of The VCCircle Network, owned by global media and information services group News Corp, is hosting the 8th edition of India’s largest summit on ecommerce, Techcircle India Ecommerce Summit 2016.

The summit, on February 10-11 at The Westin, Gurgaon, will discuss the roadmap to unlocking growth, address challenges the sector is facing and showcase successful entrepreneurial stories, besides highlighting emerging opportunities for ambitious, new entrepreneurs.

Panel I: Way to profitability in Indian Ecommerce - Doing it the Alibaba way?
One of the compelling questions that the sector faces today is profitability, especially for larger ecommerce companies. As break-even and clear path to profit eludes this segment, can diversification into financial services, payments and logistics through forward and backward integration or acquisitions provide alternative paths?

Panel II: Is Consolidation the way forward
Consolidation in ecommerce has been a major trend in recent times and one can see this continuing into 2016. Consequently, a number of players in this segment have gone on an acquisition spree or have developed partnerships. Is consolidation the sure-fire way forward in ecommerce? Be it Ola taking over TaxiForSure or Snapdeal and Freecharge coming together, one can see this trend moving in other consumer internet segments as well, such as hotel aggregation and digital real estate. What has worked and what might not?

For those who missed out on India’s early ecommerce, are hyperlocal and on-demand services giving new options for entrepreneurs, angel investors and VCs?   What happens after the initial dollars from Fo-Mo (Fear of Missing Out) slow?

The rise of service ecommerce businesses with a lot of entrepreneurs jumping in to create businesses in food services, cab, hotel, household services aggregation has been a hallmark of India’s ecommerce in recent years. Each segment has seen significant investments coming in at the seed stage and leaders doing follow-on funding rounds. While proving your worth to initial set of consumers is relatively easy, what does it take to serve quality while scaling up? Do the rules change when you achieve scale in a set period? How can technology be a key aide?

With the cost of customer acquisition compounding because of unsustainable discounts and deals, what can stakeholders do to hold on to their customers and create a loyal base, independent of discounts and deals? Is there a way to ease up on discounts and still hold on to consumers? What are the key factors for retaining consumers: user experience, ease of use, product differentiation, faster delivery, easy returns? When compromising on growth is not the criteria, what are these players doing to drive customer acquisition and lower retention costs?

Panel I: Serving the last mile - Keeping logistics and reverse logistics, warehousing and automation at the core
With the next level of growth for ecommerce coming from Tier 2 and 3 cities, all online retailers are gearing up to serve the last mile. We’ve seen specialised logistics players emerge and grow in leaps and bounds in the last two to three years. Add to this are the hyperlocal delivery players offering last-mile connectivity. With integration of technology, back-end and warehousing are getting automated and this is reducing the lead times to delivery and improving efficiencies. What are the best practices followed by leaders in this space? With smooth reverse logistics being the key to growth in Tier-2/3 cities, what are the best-in-class experiences here? Does it help to have all these services in-house?

11:50 am - 12:40 pm
Panel II: Experience offline, buy online: Lessons from online players creating offline touch points
As marketing and price wars heat up between large horizontal ecommerce players, a lot of them are wooing offline consumers by creating physical touch points, such as experience zones and model stores, allowing consumers to experience and interact with products offline and buy online. A lot of online players have tried this, especially in the vertical ecommerce space, and results have been uneven. In a country with patchy Internet penetration, will this strategy help change consumer behaviour?

Vertical ecommerce catering to specific segments, such as handicrafts, ethnic fashion and retail, food & beverage products, organic food along with firms specialising in vertical focussed businesses roles have also made a mark in India. However, due to a relatively limited market size, the question of sustenance in the longer run becomes very important. What are the nuances involved in vertical marketplaces? How are these vertical marketplaces contributing to the overall ecommerce ecosystem in the country?

The unprecedented growth of ecommerce ecosystem has paved the way for digital payment facilitators and providers to come in and carve out a niche for themselves. A lot of young startups are disrupting the way an individual pays while interacting with several consumer internet businesses including ecommerce. Still, the larger portion of transactions initiated on all ecommerce platforms, including the larger ones, is served by Cash on Delivery. Can we live without cash on delivery? How can innovative digital payment businesses bridge this gap?
