RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (Business Wire) -- ChannelAdvisor (NYSE: ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced that CEO Scot Wingo will present at the 2014 National Retail Foundation (NRF) Annual Convention and EXPO — also known as Retail's BIG Show. Wingo will speak on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 2 p.m. EST at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. In his presentation, titled “Strategic Partner and Fierce Competitor: Amazon's Retail Impact,” Wingo will discuss the effect that Amazon has on the retail industry and will offer success secrets so that retailers can be better prepared to compete or partner with Amazon.

“Amazon is a huge force in the retail industry, so it's crucial that retailers have a comprehensive understanding of how this tech titan operates,” said Wingo. “I'm pleased to be included in this year's NRF lineup and to have the opportunity to peel the onion on Amazon for retailers, giving them more insight on how to make the best possible decisions for their retail businesses.”

Retail's BIG Show is held annually in New York City and brings together industry leaders and visionaries who present game-changing ideas and perspectives. This year's conference will be held January 12-15 and will offer attendees endless educational and networking opportunities.
