Are you in?

February 25, 2008

If you’re not registered for ChannelAdvisor Catalyst yet, then you definitely should be.

Catalyst takes place in beautiful Pinehurst, NC after the holiday selling season has passed and retailers can actually come up for air.  It’s a great time to assess selling strategies — new and old for retailers large and small.

Catalyst is perhaps one of the best places to get educated about multichannel selling from the people who are making the decisions at the Internet’s most influential properties.

And guess what? You get to attend with hundreds of other sellers, and, of course, your humble ChannelAdvisor friends.

Here’s the speaker lineup we announced today, in alphabetical order:

  • Amazon – Sebastian Gunningham, SVP Merchant
    Services will be talking about the various third-party options that
    Amazon is offering including of course Merchants@, but also fulfilment
    by Amazon (FBA) and ProductAds.  Sebastian is essentially the CEO of
    Amazon’s third party business so this is going to be something not to
    be missed if Amazon is at all part of your strategy or something you
    want to learn more about.
  • eBay – We have Stephanie Tilenius, GM of eBay NA,
    John Mracek from and finally Mary Anne Gillespie, VP of
    Paypal coming to talk about all the changes and opportunities within
    the eBay marketplaces+payments family.
  • Facebook – Ben Ling who runs Facebook’s platform team will be here to talk about the opportunities there for merchants.
  • Google – Vince Monical, Director of commerce and analytics will be talking about Google’s long-tail strategy.
  • Nike – One of the World’s largest brands, Nike,
    will be covered by Chris Shimojima, VP of global ecommerce.  Chris will
    be talking about how the Nike brand is evolving and how they leverage
    it in the world of ecommerce.

This is only a sampling, and, of course, there are always great surprises — you should definitely register here if you haven’t already!

We expect to have twice the attendence of last
year and have limited capacity so there’s a good chance we’ll have to
cut off registrations early on, so get in while you can.

Maybe we can finally meet in person, because I’ll be there!
