Every January, the world’s most popular brands and retailers flock to NYC to kick off the year at Retail’s Big Show. It’s a chance for everyone in the industry to get a first glimpse at what will be the year’s biggest trends, which new channels and devices will disrupt the market, and where there will be new opportunities for growth. This year commercetools headed to the Big Apple to work our headless commerce technology into the mix, but from a slightly different angle – high above Hell’s Kitchen.

Over two exquisite evenings, we gathered our technology and system integrator partners together in a penthouse suite high above The Hudson to meet with brands and retailers who are going through platform migrations and digital transformations. While sipping on MACH-tails and cocktails and watching the sun set over the Manhattan skyline, we discussed the challenges enterprise retailers are facing during replatforming, and the types of solutions they’re looking for.

For everyone who was unable to make it to NYC this year and attend Headless Over Hell’s Kitchen, we’re sad you missed out. However, we do want to share the key takeaways from our conversations and what we think will be the 3 biggest trends in eCommerce technology in 2020. You can also read more about these 3 topics in our recent blog article written by commercetools CPO Kelly Goetsch:

  • Going cloud
  • A power shift to front-end developers
  • Headless commerce solutions

Please enjoy photos from the event below, and we look forward to seeing you in Vegas if you’ll be attending Shoptalk 2020!
