“I’ll present what I’ve learned in rolling out e-commerce sites for 10 years in different markets around the world,” McEniry says. “I’ll point out what the differences are in each country we serve, and what other retailers can watch out for as they adapt their brands to foreign markets.”

McEniry will address differences across multiple foreign markets in such areas as types of online payments, consumer shopping behavior and digital marketing techniques. “I’ll bring up examples from around the world, and discuss examples of the differences between markets including the U.K., China, Japan, Germany, France and Brazil,” he says.

Within the next few years, Estee Lauder expects to have an e-commerce presence in 33 countries while reaching out through online marketing to a total of 60 countries, McEniry says.
