About ecomhack

Bringing together the brightest minds in the e-commerce space, ecomhack fosters the exchange between innovative companies and talented teams to burst inspiration in the community and create outstanding and sustainable hacks.

Within 42 hours, the teams of up to 5 people create amazing e-commerce hacks using APIs from the participating companies with support of their developer experts. At the end of the two days, an international renowned jury votes for the best, most inspiring and innovative apps and awards the development teams with awesome prizes.

The New Shopping Experience

Shopping is personal, shopping is emotional, shopping is fun - and that’s also what we expect our experience to be. We want to be inspired and engaged along the way.

With half of the shoppers regularly using three or more channels, offering an integrated, engaging multichannel experience becomes increasingly important for brands and merchants. New technologies provide new opportunities to better understand the customers and offer unique ways to integrate online interactions with in-store experiences.

From personalized offers to a content-rich in-store experience to a seamless checkout - the upcoming ecomhack Berlin is all about how beacons, wearables and other emerging devices enable vendors to create a more personal, more inspiring and more engaging shopping experience – across all channels.
