These conferences clearly show just how much expertise lies in the e-commerce sector. There is no point in learning the lessons the harder way through losses and pain when there are so many people willing to guide you to success using their knowledge. Step out of your home and offices, start signing up and network because the first-hand knowledge you will get from these industry leaders is priceless. If you are a seller, you can connect with various consultants and solution providers that can help you improve your sales and if you are a consultant, you can connect with Amazon sellers to help them out. Anyway, it’s a win-win situation for all. I hope to see in most of these conferences.
