LONDON, January 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
DiscountVouchers named as title sponsor for London summit
E-commerce entrepreneurs and media owners are being invited to attend the inaugural daily deals summit in Europe being hosted in London in spring 2012.
The Daily Deals Summit Europe on March 19 is shaping up to be one of the major dates in the daily deals calendar, bringing together top speakers from the industry. Â The title sponsor has been named as leading money-saving website DiscountVouchers.co.uk who recently moved into the regional daily deals market in direct competition to US brands operating in the UK.
DiscountVouchers CEO Gerard Doyle will address the summit at the Grange Hotel St Paul's. He will talk about the decision behind his company's move into the daily deals arena. "This summit will bring together the major players in the daily deals arena and is a unique opportunity for experts from Europe, the US and the UK to share good practice. The daily deals industry is massive in the US and Europe is catching up fast," he said.
"Businesses interested in daily deals will have the opportunity to learn from others in the industry who have successfully implemented daily deals into their business plan. As well as providing an expert platform of speakers, this event will also be an excellent networking opportunity," he said.
"With a database topping 6 million subscribers and more than 150,000 unique visitors per day, DiscountVoucher's move into the daily deals space was a natural progression for the UK's fastest growing discount voucher site."
"As businesses look at fresh avenues for profit, daily deals open up a new stream of opportunities and help merchants to take advantage of partners' databases of online consumers," he said.
Gerard will be joined on the speaker platform by Saurav Chopra from Huddlebuy and Sean Seton-Rodgers, General Partner at PROfounders.
There are believed to be as many as 200 voucher websites operating in the UK as businesses take advantage of Britain's bargain culture. More then 400 delegates, including 30 CEOs, are expected to attend the summit. The summit will be of particular interest to deal providers, local and national merchants, publishers or media owners and the press.
Since DiscountVouchers.co.uk was launched in 2009 the site has helped customers save more than Â£3.8 million and has generated revenues in excess of Â£25 million in the 12 months to August 2011. At present, the site features more than 500 new vouchers every day from over 3000 retailers including Marks&Spencer, House of Fraser, Lastminute.com and Sainsbury's.
