Session Title: A peek into the world's largest shopping network

Bazaarvoice is proud to be the world’s largest shopping network. If our network were a mall, you would never be able to visit all the stores because new ones are added daily and the network is constantly growing. But with that large of a network comes certain challenges, one of which is the annual shopping-fest known as Black Friday/Cyber Monday. How do you prep for, stage and ultimately support one of the largest in-store and online events in the world without missing a beat across the world's largest network of active shoppers? You work for Bazaarvoice, you are obsessed with your clients’ success, you down a ton of energy drinks and you start in May. Join CEO Gene Austin, CMO Sara Spivey and Executive Vice President for Engineering Gary Allison for a peek behind the curtain of the world’s largest shopping network and hear how Bazaarvoice preps for a massive event like Black Friday, continuously elevates the value of the consumer-generated content it enables and what the future holds for shoppers, brands and retailers around the world.
