I’m off today to one of the bigger online retailing shows of the year – Shop.org’s Annual summit. Shop.org is a non-profit trade association that the online group of the National Retailer Federation (NRF).
- As best I can remember (I checked the 08 online agenda and my 07 conference book) eBay has never presented at this show.
- eBay has been spending more time at shows for retailers recently. For example, Stephanie Tilenius was at IRCE in the summer talking about the virtues of eBay for retailers. But, as best I can tell, John Donahoe has never hit the circuit.
Keynote: John Donahoe, President and CEO, eBay, Inc.
South Pacific Ballroom C
John will discuss consumer shopping trends and what theymean for commerce online and offline.
John’s presentation will be followed by a moderated Q&A session with Patti Freeman Evans, Vice President and Research Director at Forrester Research.
ChannelAdvisor at shop.org
We’ll be at shop.org in full force. We are at booth #401 in the exhibit hall and all of our staff (20-30 folks this year!) are wearing light blue shirts with ChannelAdvisor on them. We’re going to be doing some fun events and have a separate room to show more in-depth demos and what-not for those that are interested in our various solutions. I’ll be there spending time at the booth and in a ton of meetings. I hope we’re able to connect -stop by the booth and let them know you read about it on the blog for a little tchotchke we’re handing out.
What do you think about eBay recruiting more large retailers to the site? Chime in on comments.
