Are Ecommerce Conferences Worth Visiting?

15 ways to get your first ecommerce sales

One of the lessons in any type of business is to network your way to the top. Meeting people and sharing ideas, the experts say, is one of the best practices you can have under your belt. After all, it doesn’t matter nearly as much what you know as who you know, and conferences are golden opportunities to make this happen…right? RepricerExpress looks at the reasons why ecommerce conferences are still king.

Reason 1: You Can Score Some Awesome Conferences For Very Little

There’s a saying that goes “there’s no such thing as a free lunch”, but it totally doesn’t apply to ecommerce conferences. While it’s true they can’t be hosted for absolutely no cost, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to help out with the bill.

Just because the knowledge is out there doesn’t mean you need to go broke over it. Keep the money in your wallet, where it belongs.

Reason 2: There’s Always One to Suit Your Needs

No matter where in the world you are, you’re never more than a quick plane ride away from an awesome ecommerce conference — every month. Cities have really opened their doors to the future, letting their physical spaces be host to various ecommerce conferences on a regular basis.

Whether you’re on the east or west coast in North America (either country, and you’re covered), the Northern or Southern hemisphere or in Europe or Asia, all you have to do is look at the calendar, pick one that suits your fancy…and go there.

Reason 3: You Can Be As General or Specific As You’d Like

Have a hankering to improve yourself on the digital aspects of fashion? Excellent, we’ve got plenty of conferences for you. More interested in a general take on the industry? Yep, there’s a big lot there for you to choose from as well.

One of the most fantastic things about a world with 7 billion people in it is you have the option to attend a conference on just about any topic you’d like.

Reason 4: Someone Always Speaks Your Language

English is the world’s lingua franca, yes, but that doesn’t mean you always have to attend conferences in it. Although a great deal of the non-native-English-speaking world is able to understand/speak English, it’s more comforting to attend a conference in your language. You can process information faster and deeper without worrying about the translational details, with conferences like the Le congrès 2019 du commerce de détail offering things up in French. Bon appetit!

Reason 5: You Just May Learn a Thing or Two

Raise your hand if you started your online business perfectly out of the gate, hitting home runs on every single venture. Great — we want you to teach us your ways. For the majority of the population, though, life just doesn’t work that way. We don’t go around in the world knowing everything, and it takes crossing paths with people smarter than us in a certain area to get to the next level. And what better place to let the seeds of educational growth take root than at a 2019 ecommerce conferences? So go on: take a stack of business cards with you, pack up a couple of nice suits, and tell your company you’ll be back in a few days. They’ll be enriched upon your return.
