E-commerce has been the story of India’s Internet growth over the last year and a half, and the company that has led the charge, with a focus on winning over customers is Flipkart. Growth, however, has come at a cost, and it’s likely that the space will see further consolidation. With multi-brand retail being opened up offline, the next year is going to be interesting: what will change? At The #NAMA Conference, on October 10th 2012 at The Westin, Gurgaon, we’ll speak with Binny Bansal, COO & Co-Founder at Flipkart.com about enabling further growth in (physical) e-commerce, an insight into the customer centric focus that is driving Flipkart, the digital distribution business, about the challenges and costs of scale, among other ecosystem changes.

A transformation is taking place in both the Internet and Mobile services businesses. Along with uncertainty, there is significant opportunity. #NAMA seeks to shed light on challenges and uncertainties, what market leaders are doing about it, and point towards opportunities through deep, insightful and meaningful discussions and sharing of experiences.
Our focus is on providing the audience with valuable insight on the decisions that are being made, why they’re being made, what developments are influencing them, and how they will impact the growth of the digital industry going forward. We will provide #NAMA attendees with significant and varied learning about the digital ecosystem, and give them a reason to stay in the conference hall, not just chat in the hallway.
#NAMA will be a conference with a healthy mix of ideas, thought leadership and with important operational questions being addressed, with fresh ideas being shared and showcased, and hopefully, defining a sense of directions in these uncertain times, and a vision. #NAMA is being organized by MediaNama, the premier publication on the evolution of India’s digital ecosystem, being held on October 10th 2012, at The Westin, in Gurgaon
