11 years of GPeC

We started in 2006, when in Romania e-commerce was almost insignificant. We supported the industry and its growth right from the start and, according to your feedback, we became the most important e-commerce event in Romania. Check out how the last 9 editions of GPeC brought to the Romanian e-commerce industry.

About GPeC 2011

On the 22nd of November 2011, at Crystal Palace Ballrooms, GPeC E-commerce Awards Gala announced its 6th edition’s winners. The event reunited a total of 250 participants for the 2 modules – GPeC Conferences and GPeC E-Commerce Awards Gala – and was watched by another 200 persons (statistic available just for GPeC’s website, although GPeC was also broadcasted by other websites and blogs like Wall-Street.ro, PaginaDeMedia.ro, Manager.ro, Blogatu.ro etc.), LTV being the partner that ensured the broadcast.

GPeC Conferences reunited famous names of the online industry who debated hot topics and news for online shops and online entrepreneurs. Our special lineup of speakers included Marius Ghenea (FIT Distribution), Doina Costache (Google Romania), Cristian Herghelegiu (PayU Romania), Radoslaw Hofman (Pay U Polonia), Dorin Boerescu (2Parale) etc., but also our special guest through broadcast –Bryan Eisenberg (one of the best world-wide marketing online and conversion optimization specialists).

The GPeC awards ceremony started with an entertainment moment by the “Improvizati” band – a standup comedy show that entertained our audience and got them in the right mood for the evening celebration. The next moment was our special e-commerce market overview feature video, followed by the GPeC 2011 trophies ceremony.

The current edition of GPeC was the most complex so far, 61 online shops participating in the compation and going through 3 evaluation stages during the 8 competition months. The online shops were analysed by 17 specialists against 89 assessment criteria, in order to analyse their evolution the whole year long.

Also, approximately 120 normal consumers graded the GPeC online shops, the merchants therefore receiving a real feedback of those shopping online from their business.

Last but not least, the registered online shops had the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the GPeC jury members who got the chance to explain their grades and give them recommendations on how to improve their business. At the same time, they had the opportunity to participate in the first E-Commerce Summer School in Romania, consisting of a series of trainings and case studies by Romanian online specialists.

The purpose of GPeC is that of increasing the quality of the Romanian online shops and, thus, increasing the trust of the online consumers in internet transactions and online shopping – the merchants also received the TRUSTED.ro trust brand (The National Program of Online Shops Certification, initiated by GPeC together with Legi-Internet.ro and the Association for the Protection of Romanian Consumers).

The awards granted yesterday by GPeC E-Commerce Awards Gala targeted the whole e-commerce industry from payments processing banks to online shops and services providers. The winners have been chosen according to RomCard statistics, jury ranking assessments and consumer feedbacks, as well as feedback received from the online shops registered with the competition.
