First European daily deals event comes to London

Europe’s first ever ‘daily deals’ event is set to take place on Monday, bringing together over a dozen of the industry’s leaders in London.

The DD Summit Europe 2012 will feature key speakers including Tobia Tschoetsch, managing director of Groupon, and Omid Ashtari from Foursquare, among others.

Between them, the speakers have seen capital investment worth over £1.5 bn since the sector took off in Europe just two years ago.

There are now around 70 daily deal sites active in the UK, and over 1,500 deal providers across Europe.

Stavros Prodromou, director of DD Summit Europe, said: “The DD Summit provides a forum for daily deal professionals to share their thoughts on recent acquisitions, to advise start-ups, and to discuss the economic influence of the daily deal industry.

“We have a fantastic line up of speakers from across Europe who will be covering a huge variety of topics including the future of ecommerce, customer acquisition, flash sales and hyperlocal best practices.”

The summit will also hear from daily deal experts Lopo Champalimaud, co-founder and CEO of Wahanda; Fabian Heilemann, co-founder of Dailydeal.de (Germany); Gerard Doyle, CEO of Discountvoucher (UK); Joaquin Engel, co-founder and CEO of Groupalia (Spain) and Esra Sertoglu, CEO of Groupanya (Turkey).
