eCommerce Charlotte focuses on discussion, learning and networking for those of us involved in the many eCommerce industries.  Each meeting features an industry expert presenting on a specific topic to help drive not only learning, but innovation and conversation around some facet of the eCommerce ecosystem.  Attendees often network for a few minutes prior to the formal presentation and oftentimes these conversations continue afterward and in to the weeks between each Meetup.

Bring a few cards, plan to learn something, and maybe even prep with a few questions for the speaker.  It’s like a mini-conference every 2nd Tuesday of the month.  All are welcome and feel free to invite co-workers and friends. Please RSVP for events you plan to attend.
