MarketLive Announces Tim O'Reilly as Keynote Speaker for 11th Annual Commerce Summit

PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2014) - MarketLive, the leading Total Commerce platform for high-growth merchants, today announced technologist Tim O'Reilly as keynote speaker at the eleventh annual MarketLive Commerce Summit, to be held March 9-11, 2015.

The invitation-only event will be hosted at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in Coronado, California.

Tim O'Reilly is a technologist, futurist, and founder/CEO of O'Reilly Media who has been instrumental in dozens of important technology trends. He is a partner at O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures (OATV) and serves on the Boards of Code for America, Safari, Maker Media, PeerJ, and Civis Analytics. He is also a major proponent of open source software and the Internet Operating System, and his ubiquitous "animal books" and Safari online reference and tutorial service have taught millions how to code. In addition, he is largely credited for coining the term Web 2.0 and predicting the maker movement.

"Each year our Summit grows both in attendance and in industry importance as we gather the best minds for two days of discussion and collaboration around retail trends and technologies. We're especially delighted to have Tim O'Reilly as one of those minds this year," said Ken Burke, founder and CEO of MarketLive. "Our goal is to provide our customers and partners with the latest insights to stay at the leading edge of our industry, and way ahead of their competitors."

This year's summit theme is "Commerce at the Tip of Your Fingers," focusing on how retailers can ensure their customers have an optimized brand experience every time they interact, regardless of touch point, device, location or activity. The Summit agenda is capped by the annual presentation of the MarketLive Customer Awards. Additional speakers will be announced in early 2015. For more Summit information, visit: http://www.marketlive.com/summit2015/
