More Code Commerce speakers: Dia&Co’s Nadia Boujarwah and Pinterest president Tim Kendall

The Recode event takes place September 13 and 14 in New York City.

Jason Del Rey has been a business journalist for 15 years and has covered Amazon, Walmart, and the e-commerce industry for the last decade. He was a senior correspondent at Vox.

It’s only been six weeks since we started telling you about the speakers joining us on September 13 and 14 at our Code Commerce event, but the roster is already impressive: Williams-Sonoma CEO Laura Alber, Blue Apron CEO Matt Salzberg, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Bonobos founder/Walmart digital brand chief Andy Dunn, just to name a few.

And we’re not done yet. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be announcing the last group of industry leaders who we’ll challenge and learn from onstage over two days in New York City in the fall. Here are two of them who are helping to shape how the next generation of consumers discovers new products online.

  • In 2014, Nadia Boujarwah co-founded the online fashion retailer Dia&Co after being frustrated with the lack of attractive shopping experiences for plus-sized clothing. Less than three years later, her personal-styling service is selling millions of dollars of clothing to customers each month through a try-on-at-home model. The next challenge: Convincing the world’s biggest women’s fashion brands to start producing apparel that fits the other two-thirds of American women.
  • If Pinterest surpasses $500 million in revenue in 2017 like it is projecting to, Tim Kendall will be a big reason why. As the president of the fast-growing image-discovery website, it’s on Kendall to help turn the attention of Pinterest’s 175 million monthly users into advertising dollars — and perhaps, someday, a real e-commerce business.

These are just some of the names joining us at Code Commerce for unscripted, no-BS conversations with Kara Swisher, me and the rest of the Recode team. We’ll also be taking you inside some of the most innovative companies and stores in New York City for exclusive, behind-the-scene tours.

Register by July 31 and you’ll save $200 off the registration price. See you there.
