Glossier’s Emily Weiss and NYU’s Scott Galloway are coming to Code Commerce

The New York City event is happening September 17 and 18.

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.

As we’ve shaped Recode’s Code Commerce event over the last few years, we’ve made a point of convening a group of industry leaders who can share as many insights into the future of retail as into the present.

Today, we’re adding two more speakers to the Code Commerce lineup who perfectly fit that mold — and who you can hear from in person on September 17 and 18 in New York City.

In less than four years, Glossier founder and CEO Emily Weiss has built one of the most beloved beauty brands among millennials and Gen Z, with the vast majority of sales coming directly through the company’s website.

We’ll discuss what it will take for Weiss to build a truly mass-market beauty brand, but one whose uniqueness isn’t diluted as it reaches outside its core customer base. We’ll also dive into the company’s heavy investments in digital products that Weiss believes will make Glossier a go-to destination in the future for women — even when they’re not shopping.

Code Commerce attendees will also hear from NYU professor Scott Galloway, the author of “The Four,” who will kick off the event with an overview of the trends shaping retail today as well as what comes next. If you know Galloway at all, you know there will be smart predictions.

Weiss and Galloway join an already impressive slate of speakers, including the founders and C-suite execs from companies such as Shopify, Macy’s, Chobani, Instacart, Square, Instagram, Away, Flipkart and more.

Attendees also get behind-the-scenes tours inside retailers and brands like Macy’s, Casper, PayPal and Flight Club.

Register today before the event sells out. Kara Swisher and I will see you in a few weeks.
