The new decade is already in full swing and January is almost over again. For us, that's reason enough to take another look at our development over the past year and draw a summary. In the following, we would like to present to you which major events we were able to record in 2019, what Shopify Plus has to do with them, and which customers accompanied us in the past year.

Shopify Plus and exciting customer projects
2019 has been a year of numbers. We are particularly proud to be the 1st official Shopify Plus partner in the DACH region. For our customers, this means that they can expect a total package from us. Whether store creation, screen design, the development of all necessary connections and additional functions or accompanying marketing through measures such as SEO or SEA - we are the all-in-one partner for the all-in-one store system! 😉
As part of Shopify Plus, we were able to support exciting customers from a wide range of sectors in 2019. Among others, we worked for well-known project partners such as Babbel for Business, Shape Republic, Harper Collins and Cora Publishing. But we also supported Sennheiser and Dear Reality with a wide variety of services and measures.
A breath of fresh air and new locations
Last year, we not only expanded with a larger office at our main location in Wuppertal, but also created a new domicile for ourselves with a brand new location in Munich since October. Here, especially our marketing team will find a place.
The Latori team is now 12 people strong. Nevertheless, we still need new faces in the team. Our plan for this year is to offer 15 to 20 motivated people a place to work.
Event highlights 2019
As a partner, it's always a great pleasure to be at events where you can connect with the Shopify community. Whether it's with Shopify merchants, employees or other agencies and experts - the impressions and feedback always bring us a step forward ourselves. For this reason, the joint booth with Shopify at DMEXCO in Cologne as well as the Merchant Inspiration Talks in Berlin have remained a special memory for us.
We also felt particularly honored that 24 of our stores, which we actively support as an agency, entered the ring for the popular award at the Shop Usability Award.
The Internet World Expo in Munich, the E-Commerce Future in Cologne, the JTL Connect in Düsseldorf and many other events last year brought us exciting discussions and new projects. This year you will be able to meet us again at some of these events!
New challenges and plans for 2020
2019 was one of the most exciting years for Latori. Our growth has been both exciting and nerve-wracking. Data privacy adjustments kept us on our toes, and we also had to respond to new requests and requirements from Shopify Plus customers. All of this has welded our team together more strongly and connected us with our customers. Full of confidence, we are now looking forward to a new year in which we want to further expand our location in Munich, continue to grow our team and focus more on Shopify Plus. And who knows, maybe in 2023 you'll find Latori at a 3rd location in Germany...
On behalf of the entire team, we would like to thank you for the exciting collaboration with you and look forward to common challenges in 2023!
