The platform for e-commerce

K5 is the leading digital retail event. We pride ourselves on high quality content and delivering real value by connecting the innovators, doers, and decision-makers in the e-commerce sector of the DACH region. The K5 FUTURE RETAIL CONFERENCE represents our flagship. For our 10th anniversary in May 2020 we are expecting over 3,000 participants, 150 speakers, 100 exhibitors, and an unforgettable afterparty. We also provide information about past keynote speakers at K5, key insights from the conference, and insights into the world of business from the ChefTreff Podcast via our K5 Blog. We also provide a register of relevant and useful solution providers in the e-commerce world in the K5 League.
