Confirmed panellists include Dan Foskett, Managing Director of Connection Retail, which includes established brands such as Grass Direct and the Flooring Superstore, Paul Lancaster, Founder of Plan Digital UK and Newcastle Start-Up Week, as well as Ruth Lopardo, Owner of loveitloveitloveit, which sells ethically sourced children’s clothes.

Graham Robb, Owner of the North East of England Business Network, said: “With 92 per cent of the UK’s population using the internet and 72 per cent of these people making an online purchase, the e-commerce market is massive and is only going to expand as our attention is increasingly focused on a variety of screens.

“The North East’s digital economy is thriving and it will be great to hear from some of the region’s business leaders, who will share their knowledge and experience of the online marketplace.”
