Hey Sellers! We hope you had a great time at the Lazmall Brands Future Forum on 1 September, be it at the physical event or watching as it was live-streamed! For those who had unfortunately missed out on the event, fret not as we will give you a recap of what happened in this article!

We hosted two sessions of Lazmall Brands Future Forum on 1 September, with the regional session done from 10 am to 1.30 pm and the Singapore session from 3 pm to 5.30 pm. We held a hybrid event and hosted 600-pax onsite, while simultaneously livestreaming the event to allowed more LazMall sellers to join us online in real time and be a part of the forum.

For such a large-scale event, we had adhered to the government’s Vaccinated-differentiated Safe Management Measures (SMMs) and all the guests were required to be fully vaccinated. Everyone had to show proof of vaccination during registration and are seated within their zones. Grouped by their categories, guests are allowed free-seating within their zones, allowing them to better mingle with fellow sellers.

The Singapore session began with an opening address by Lazada Singapore’s CEO, Mr Loh Wee Lee, welcoming our esteemed sellers to the event and setting the tone for the forum.

It was noted that the COVID-driven E-Commerce trend is expected to stay post-pandemic. Statistics had shown that 76% of online consumers shop at least once a month, 36% shop online once a week and 27% shop multiple times a week. E-Commerce has also now become a must-have channel for brands and sellers.

Following the opening speech, we shared important information on upcoming mega campaigns, highlighted programs and tips with our sellers about selling on Lazada.
