Shopware Community Day

Every year, the Shopware Community Day brings together eCommerce enthusiasts from across Europe to discover current and future trends.

Following the motto “Beyond Horizon” at the Shopware Community Day 2018, we ventured beyond the classic scope of eCommerce to explore what lies ahead. In his opening keynote, Shopware founder and CEO Stefan Hamann urged each and every one of us to hold tight of our childhood creativity and have the courage to forge new paths moving forward. Numerous top speakers shared similar messages and presented their own views on the current and future state of eCommerce, digitisation and the world of tomorrow.

Thank you for being there and making the day such an unforgettable event. Relive the Shopware Community Day in our recap and experience the exciting moments from a completely new perspective.

Johannes Altmann
The lucky ones!

We sit in the waiting room of perfection and wait for the day when our shop will be successful. Occasionally, a new hype startles us from our complacent idling and we run in the wrong direction with irrational exuberance. We lose our bearings in the forest of possibilities and forget to think of the customer's happiness. In this presentation, Johannes Altmann provides reorientation and takes us on an excursion into the roots of what we do.
