Today in B2B: Cyber Monday Numbers and An Olympic Goal

 

We are quickly approaching the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but preparations are already underway for the 2028 Games in Los Angeles.

The city has partnered with the private sector on a plan to have 30 percent of cars on LA’s roadways be electric by the times the games begin.

According to smartcitiesdive.com, LA’s plan will have an increase in ride-sharing options, and a goal to convert 20 percent of all trips in single-occupancy vehicles to zero-emission public transit options like bicycles.

Meanwhile in the here and now, the numbers are already in for Cyber Monday’s shopping bonanza.

According to Adobe research, more than $9.2 billion was spent on Cyber Monday, good for a year-over-year increase of 17 percent.

Something else notable Adobe reported was that online sales conducted through smartphone hit a record $3 billion. That is an increase of 46 percent over last year, signaling a shift in the way brands reach their customers.

Taking a look at the trade show calendar, a huge event in the medical world is taking place this week. That would be Pri-Med East in Boston, Mass.

Keynote speakers include Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and former NBA player and motivational speaker Chris Herren. Topics on the agenda include everything from telehealth to primary care best practices. The event runs through Saturday afternoon.
