"Trusted Partners" Speaking Series
ICA Event - The Growth and Future of e-Commerce and the Online Marketplace in Japan
Monday 29 Jul, 2019 / 18:30
Speaker(s): Yasushi Okue
Country Manager at Groupon Japan
Increasing demand for e-commerce plays an important role in the Japanese economy, and service-oriented e-commerce alone accounts for $46 billion in revenue and the fastest growth rate at 11.3% per annum.
Our speaker will provide an exclusive look at the growth and future of the e-commerce online marketplace in Japan, and how organizations are adapting to evolving purchasing preferences while building customer loyalty and trust.
Topics to be covered include:
• The current e-commerce landscape (e.g. consumer lifestyle service sector)
• Unique market characteristics that support continued e-commerce growth
• The future of the e-commerce service sector, including challenges and opportunities
• Groupon’s rise in global/local strategic growth from the view of a US business operating in Japan
• Trends and future areas of new innovation
Yasushi Okue is Country Manager at Groupon Japan, the Japanese subsidiary of Groupon’s worldwide e-commerce marketplace, which is now available in more than 15 countries. Okue is responsible for leading the organization’s revenue-generation operations and has been bridging the gap between the Japanese consumer market and businesses that sprung out of US-based IT technologies for the past 10 years. He has worked for companies such as Amazon, Twitter, and AOL (now Oath Inc.) in various executive roles.
