Germany: Germany is one of the most developed eCommerce markets in Europe. Almost half of the generated revenues in retail sector comes from sales in web. The amount of people who buy online rises each year and there is still a high potential for growing.
Wow! The estimation of 30000 Visitors could be right: it’s crowded – and it’s huge! It seems the French are vraiment entering the eCommerce space now. In terms of visitors, this is the biggest eCommerce show in Europe.
Though some international companies – like us 😉 – are present, local players are clearly in the majority. Some proudly announce their French origin, however many have international ambitions. And some are already successful internationally: I had a short talk with Corinne Lejbowicz, the CEO of LeGuide.com, she says international expansion is running very well. Their stand also says (in English!) “No. 1 in France. Already No. 2 in Europe”. And Prestashop, an eCommerce Platform for smaller shops, boosts 40000 online shops operated with their shop system – 28000 of them outside France.
