We want attendees to receive the information their company needs to make informed decisions regarding their strategies and direction for business-to-business electronic commerce," said Arens.

The conference will feature over 40 educational sessions spanning the spectrum from electronic commerce essentials to in-depth analysis of the latest trends and technologies. Attendees will hear from leading industry experts in the retailing, manufacturing, and technology industries.
