UPDATE: Please note that registration is now closed due to capacity. Black Friday, Cyber Monday (BFCM for short), and the holiday period that follows are the Holy Grail of the retail and eCommerce sectors. While it marks the most profitable and busiest time of the year, retailers also face significant competitive and logistical challenges. To help navigate the turbulent waters of this stressful period, we’ve gathered three seasoned marketing experts, each representing a distinct retail sector – fashion, pharmacy, and maternity & children. In this engaging webinar, our panelists will share their predictions, invaluable lessons learned from past Black Friday

Our goal was to bring smiles to the faces of our little friends, and we achieved it by teaming up with our clients to donate books and toys to Greek NGOs that specialize in helping children. Setting up our very own e-shop To

After last year’s successful collaboration between ContactPigeon and the Athens University of Economics and Business, the two organizations renewed their partnership for 2022. During the spring semester, the esteemed faculty of AUEB welcomed the Pigeons into their classrooms once again as our omnichannel customer engagement platform remains in the curriculum of the Marketing and Communications Department for the second year in a row. Students had the opportunity to explore our platform and use advanced marketing automation tools in their digital campaigns during the Digital Content & Omni-channel Marketing course.

The highly anticipated Xenia 2021 Athens Hospitality Expo is a premium exhibition designed to showcase the leading and most important companies in the construction and supply market.

Moreover, this year’s Xenia expo was a significant occasion for ContactPigeon, since two executives were there, invited as guest speakers.
