Countdown to Catalyst: An Immersive E-Commerce Learning Experience Designed By You, For You

March 5, 2018

ChannelAdvisor Caroline Lalla By Melissa Sargeant

There are so many e-commerce industry trade shows, many boasting thousands of attendees, sponsors and keynote speakers. The result? A collection of noisy, confusing and circus-like shows, promising “something for everybody” — but what they often miss is the most important part of any conference … you.

As a seller, you are competing in a blazing-fast market that changes every day. So, you don’t need a one-size-fits-all trade show; you need a focused, immersive e-commerce learning experience. You need the scoop on proven, actionable strategies that can help you sell more today and be ready for whatever comes your way. You need to connect with retailers, resellers and brands who are just like you, constantly striving for new ways to reach more customers, sell to highly empowered consumers and fulfill at “I need it now” speed. You need relevant and practical insights from successful e-commerce leaders that are tailored to your business needs. You need to leave the conference with new tactics and tools you can put to work for your organization.

ChannelAdvisor Catalyst Americas 2018 is an immersive e-commerce learning experience that is designed by you, for you. We surveyed recent Catalyst attendees and have customized the event based on their feedback to provide you the best learning and peer-to-peer experience. That’s why there isn’t a tagline for Catalyst 2018. The theme is you. This is your Catalyst.

Justifying the ROI of any conference can be a challenge. Unlike shows that are all style and little substance, Catalyst is an immersive learning experience that will leave you with plenty to talk about when you return to the office. Here are the top 10 reasons you need to be at Catalyst:
