Tablet Commerce: Fad or future. The iPad and mobile retail e-commerce (June 10th)

Update:  Here are the presentations from Zmags (download), CustomMade (download), and RetailNet Group (on their website, registration required).  The video is posted here.  Also Zmags published a blog post here.

Over this past holiday season, IBM reports that the conversion rate for shoppers on iPads was 6.3% compared with 3.1% for mobile devices overall, while Comscore indicates that twice as much commerce happens on tablets versus phones.

The retail sector is moving forward quickly to build experiences for consumers who shop in a lean-back, interactive tablet experience.

At this event, we’ll learn how local Boston retailers are trendsetters in this emerging sector of mobile by telling us about their tablet strategies and tablet success stories.

Jens Karstoft, CTO and Co-Founder, ZMags

Mike Salguero, CEO and Co-Founder, CustomMade

Mary Sullivan, Retail Analyst, RetailNet Group

This session will be led by Matt Gross, Founder of Mobile Monday Boston and Mobile First Software.
