E^HACKATHON | Bentonville


Ecommerce is disrupting everything we know about commerce, and with companies transforming their business to compete and lead, your brands – whether they realize it or not – are depending on you to figure it out.

But you’re not alone. You’re one of us…part of the movement to lead our brands through this change.

At the Edge by Ascential™ E^HACKATHON Bentonville, you and fellow industry trailblazers come together to learn and share what it takes to “win” with, moving beyond traditional ecommerce 101 to deep-dive hacks into the winning strategies, best practices and data insights needed to become an ecommerce expert and grow your business.
