A huge thank you to all of our Lazada Sellers who joined us on 16 November for the General Merchandise Seller Event at Marina Bay Sands’ Cassia Ballroom!

Being our first offline event since the pandemic struck in January 2020, we are thankful for the 136 sellers from 90 different Lazada stores that joined us at this invitation-only event.

To ensure the event adhered to the COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, the event was split into two sessions (10 am – 1 pm and 4 pm – 6 pm) accommodating our sellers safely with proper zoning and sanitation. Along with safety ambassadors present at the event, the Lazada Team had to follow proper distancing measures, restrictions on mingling across zones while ensuring that our Sellers got the most out of this seller event.

To start the ball rolling, Sellers were informed of a recent change of command. Lazada Singapore’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr Loh Wee Lee, was the Chief of Staff, Head of CEO Office at Lazada Group and Lazada Indonesia, and had served concurrently as the regional business lead of New Retail (O2O). The outgoing CEO, Mr James Chang, will transit into his new role as the Group’s Chief Business Officer.

A round-up to the previous events such as the 11:11 Mega Campaign was then given at the event, and Sellers were introduced to the upcoming campaigns on Lazada, including the Black Friday/Cyber Monday event, as well as the 12:12 Mega Campaign.

With Celebration & Gifting as our core theme for the 12:12 Grand Year-End Sale, Lazada has prepared a plethora of incentives on the platform, aiming to help boost our sellers’ growth before the year ends. Gift sets that are ready for the gifting season, unique presents such as advert calendars and bundles, along with popular surprise boxes, storewide flash sales, and vouchers will all be a part of the spectacular 12:12 Mega Campaign.

Along with products, Lazada will also be utilizing Lazzie Star, Daily Mission Slots, and the Wishing Tree as marketing efforts to help our sellers achieve higher sales during the campaign period. Sellers can check with their respective Key Account Managers (KAMs) for more information and eligibility.

Away from platform-focused promotions, Lazada will be engaging in an optimized combination of traditional and new media marketing efforts such as TV and video promotions, media releases to our media partners, social media outreach and many more for the 12.12 Mega Campaign. Strategic partnerships with banks will continue to be an integral part of our efforts in supporting our Sellers during this exhilarating One Day Mega Sale!
