What People Are Saying

  • The WWD Digital Forum exposed my team to a wealth of knowledge on current industry trends and consumer intelligence from a wide range of insightful speakers. We were so impressed by one of the presenters that we plan on utilizing their services to expand our market reach. Excellent for networking.


  • This was the first ever WWD event I attended and it completely exceeded all my expectations! Both days included a wide range of speakers on relevant topics, providing different perspectives with extremely informative discussions. By the close of day 2 we were already making business plans to implement based on the presentations and connections through networking sessions. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting to stay ahead of the curve in this fast-paced digital world!


  • Never before in my career have I been surrounded by peers that were as willing to share and learn from each other.


  • Very insightful panels at a beautiful venue. Exceedingly well executed and well attended by the cream of the crop in the beauty and fashion world of digital commerce.
