XP Roundtable EMEA:
Amazon in Times of Crisis
Virtual Event, 10:30-11:30AM GMT+2 | June 30, 2020
Already a leader in the world of eCommerce, Amazon has stepped up its game since the onset of COVID-19, investing in ways to scale its operations to better serve its customers and continue to drive revenue. Despite the company’s dominance, there is still room for improvement, presenting massive opportunities for eCommerce brands to swoop in, acquire new customers, and capture some of the digital retail market share.
