Join Our Webinar: The Financial Risk of Amazon Business to B2B Distributors

NEW YORK, NY – Applico, the advisory firm for Platform Innovation®, is hosting a webinar discussing the rise of Amazon Business and the financial impact it will have on B2B distribution on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, at 2PM EST.

In its first year, Amazon Business collected more than $1 billion in revenue and grew by 20% on average, month over month. In March 2017 alone, it’s expected to generate over $290 million in sales.

Amazon’s B2B marketplace is taking direct aim at verticals like industrial supply, building materials, chemicals, metals, and many more. Prentis Wilson, VP of Amazon Business, has even identified some companies in these industries by name as targets.

The webinar, “The Impact and Risks of Amazon Business for Traditional B2B Distributors,” will explore:

  • Evaluating the financial risk of not responding to Amazon Business with a platform
  • Identifying the financial upside of pursuing a platform and thwarting Amazon Business’s takeover before it’s too late
  • Assessing the future capabilities of B2B distributors in the space
  • How W.W. Grainger (GWW) could lose $250 million in revenue and 1/3 of its net income in the next 2 years

Space is limited, so sign up now for the Applico webinar, “The Threat of Amazon Business for B2B Distributors.”
