The team behind UBM Live's eCommerce portfolio of events has today announced the 2013 categories for the eCommerce Awards for Excellence, which will be held on
October 2nd at the Grosvenor Marriot immediately after the first day of eCommerce Expo London. Having traditionally focused on retail specifically, this year the categories will be opened up to reflect the fact that businesses of all kinds must pursue excellence in their online presence in order to keep up with their competitors.
New categories for the awards include Best Financial Services, Best Live Event & Ticketing, Best Utility Supplier and Best Online Comparison Site.
"This development to our categories is really exciting for us," said
Rebecca Slater, Event Manager for eCommerce Awards for Excellence and eCommerce Expo. "It has been apparent, in the past few years that we have been running these awards, that eCommerce is becoming more and more relevant for a huge range of businesses.
