Summits coming up that you might be interested in attending:
I think that one could be related to eBay? The ESS08 summit is being held in Sydney on Thursday June 12th, 2008 at the Bankstown Sports Club in Bankstown, Sydney.
This event will give an opportunity for all sellers to learn more about how to successfully sell on this ever-growing and ever-changing online platform.
* Discuss the new changes on the eBay Australia website.
* Learn how to take advantage of all the opportunities available for online sellers
* Interact with representatives from companies that complement online sales
* Solutions to take your business to the next level
Its only a one day conference, but attendance seems to be good value at $30 (+$20 for the cocktail party), with sponsors including eBay, PayPal, Australia Post, AuctionBlox, the ATO and ChannelAdvisor.
The Retail World Management & Technology Summit, June 17th – 18th
Although based more around bricks and mortar retail there are a few speakers from online retailers attending and the list of keynotes is pretty impressive including executives from Wal-Mart, Tesco, Carrefour, Myer, Harvey Norman and more. I am sure online retailers can learn a lot about retail and branding from the big B&M guys…
Attendance is $1,395 + GST, but the schedule and speaker list make it look like it would be an interesting few days.
ChannelAdvisor Catalyst (Australia), July 2nd to 5th
ChannelAdvisor’s first ecommerce summit in Australia is being held on the Sunshine Coast this year. Hoping for a strong turnout of sellers, ChannelAdvisor has a list of well known players in the industry attending including Scot Wingo, CEO who has a fantastic blog on eBay and online strategy and news. Always insightful.
Yours truly might be presenting some stuff there too and I am really looking forward to getting into some sunshine away from Melbourne!
Registration for the 3 days is $249.
PeSA Australia will be looking to hold more events soon too. As soon as I get some more information I will post an update.
