DCKAP SUMMIT:
WHAT'S THE BUZZ ABOUT?

After a two-year pause: The DCKAP Summit is back and bigger than ever before.

A lot has changed in that time, and the distribution sector faces new threats and challenges in the post-pandemic era.

The DCKAP Summit exists to give a platform for leading voices and experts in the industry. It is a means of shedding light on pressing issues in distribution and a way of offering organizations a gateway to bridging their current scenario to where they want to be.

A CONFERENCE ON GROWTH TALENT COMPETITION

With two years of online events (and one hybrid) behind us, we’re excited to actually meet all the attendees at this in-person-only event! There’s only so much networking one can do while in half-formals/half-pajamas, after all.

QUOTES FROM PREVIOUS
EVENT ATTENDEES

It’s a wonderful opportunity to network with industrial distribution suppliers, a wonderful opportunity to learn from the experts about B2B Commerce and all the tools available to make our customers’ lives better.

I’ve been really impressed with the speakers. I’ve learned a ton, not only about technical topics like private cloud but also how to build your best brand and make your brand your differentiator.

The convention has been extremely helpful so far, I’ve been able to network with a lot of companies. I would be happy to come next year.

They’re providing a lot of great tools & resources as well as [being great for] meeting new people, learning new things that you’ll be able to apply in the workplace, to have a nice seamless workflow.

What we’re seeing is a lot of good participation from merchants and other suppliers that are here.

It’s been great. We've seen a lot of great talks, met a lot of really great brands and app partners.

Enjoying the show today put on by DCKAP. Lots of great presenters, incredible content, lots for our business to think about on how we’re going to progress moving forward.

We’re having a great time at the Summit this year. I'm in marketing so I’m learning a lot about different ways to market our business - B2B.

This roundup has been a great experience so far, the content has all been great. They’ve done a great job from the production to the content, to the sessions themselves.

Today was filled with a whole lot of great conversations with merchants, and agencies, and it’s great to see a vibrant community.
