Comma Group: Selling the Value of PIM
14:45 - 15:15, March 1
Arena floor

The PIM market has evolved over the past few years. We are seeing increasing interest from B2B distributors, manufacturers and smaller retailers. Although they are becoming more aware of the need there is a lot of clutter in the market and it can be hard to know exactly what to do: “Do I need PIM or MDM?” “What’s the difference?” “How do I get started?” In addition, the people doing the investigation are often not the budge holder or ultimate decision maker.

This discussion will focus on how we help customers cut through the clutter and focus on delivering business value and how our approach shortens sales cycles and leads to greater customer success.

How do I get from the airport to the conference location, the Gastwerk Hamburg?

FROM HAMBURG FUHLSBÜTTEL AIRPORT (HAM):

Take the S1 to Hamburg Wedel or Hamburg Blankenese and get off at the "Bahrenfeld" station. Walk from the train station Bahrenfeld (approx. 8 minutes): From the platform, take the exit towards Hegarstrasse. Leave the station with the exit on your right side and walk for about 100m along the Hegarstrasse. Then turn left into the Bahrenfelder Kirchenweg and after 200 m turn right into the Gasstrasse. A fter about 350 m, you will turn left into the "Bahrenpark" (Gastwerk Hotel Hamburg flags visible) and you will find the Gastwerk Hotel after 200 m on the right side.

FROM THE CENTRAL STATION:

Also take the S1, see above. Alternatively, take the S11, S21 or S31 towards Hamburg Altona station to "Holstenstraße"; from here take the bus line 3 in the direction “Trabrennbahn Bahrenfeld” or “Schenefelder Platz”, getting off at the stop "Bornkampsweg". Here, cross the Bahrenfelder Chaussee in the direction of Bahrenfelder Steindamm, past the "Laufladen Lunge". The Gastwerk’s Hotel flags will show you the way into the street "Beim Alten Gaswerk".
