Immediate Release


Akamai e-Commerce Conference 2018 - Hong Kong

Though experts can't seem to agree about whether this year's holiday shopping season was a boon or a bust, several trends are evident: Consumers are browsing online more often, searching for deals earlier, and using mobile devices more frequently. Organizations point to the greater adoption of e-Commerce and early promotions will be the cause for heightened online shopping activity. In order to optimize a website, brace for new trends and prepare for increasingly diverse web activity during the 2018 holiday season, retailers must first reflect on the past.
