How can you make the pivot to directly own the customer relationship?

A Meet the Boss virtual roundtable in partnership with VTEX and AWS

Manufacturers, Brands and CPG companies are facing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. While traditionally these companies have relied upon retail stores and sites to reach their customers, they are now in a position to go directly to the consumer or leverage a B2B2C model that allows distributors, dealers to still sell their product, but at the same time allow them to build a direct relationship with the consumer.

Launching direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales can fuel growth like never before. That’s why many leading organizations are now investing in DTC platforms. Directly selling to the customer can help build the relationship, grow brand equity, and increase revenue. While digital demand for products and services continues to grow, how can you keep up, reduce risk, and see returns on investment?

Join VTEX and a select group of business thought leaders to explore how you can take advantage of the current climate, achieve double-digit growth, and successfully manage the change with your existing channels.
