Sean McKee, Head of eCommerce, Schuh
InternetRetailing is important for me because it gives me a chance to network with my peers, to hear from other retailers, to see what the latest technology is out there, what developments, in particular existing suppliers or new suppliers can bring along. It’s a great venue to catch up and touch base with what’s happening in the industry”
