The events, conferences and trade shows have always been the best place for industry practitioners to grow their networking and knowledge. Whether you are a big player or just starting fresh, you are sure to learn something new when you meet like-minded sellers who, just like you, are hustling to boost their business.
Because of the pandemic, live conferences are temporarily closed because of the pandemic; you still have a lot of virtual conferences to choose from. This is actually an advantage because you no longer have to spend on travel expenses or waste time commuting. You can either attend these conferences in the comfort of your own office, or you can visit these beautiful places and attend them physically.

How to get the most of Amazon seller conferences?
These events aren’t just an excellent opportunity to learn new things from the world’s largest retailers, but they also provide top-notch networking opportunities that can help your business reach new heights. So spending your savings and sitting in a corner will not be a very smart thing to do. Here are some of the ways to get the most value of your next event:
#1: Filter – You cannot be everywhere at once and nor we have the savings to go everywhere. So you should always look at the conference agenda ahead of time and see which events are relevant for your business.
#2: Come prepared – Whenever you are in a conference, you are always a moment away from a prospective client. The last thing you want is to show up to a business event empty-handed, so make sure to do your homework before you land at the event.
#3: Network with anyone, not just big brands – These events usually contain a mix of startups, big-box sellers and medium-sized companies. The mistake most of us make is that they focus exclusively on the big brands. But the truth is that a lot of startups and small companies may not be having the same market value as the big box retailers, but they still have valuable information to share.
#4: Network, network and network – Business conferences shouldn’t be just about listening to a motivational speech from marketplace experts, but they are also about expanding your professional network. Don’t just take a corner, break away in a group from time to time, ask questions and meet as many new people as you can.
2021 is going to be your year…finally!!
Remember, this isn’t the complete list of all 2021 seller conferences – just the ones that we thought are relevant for Amazon sellers. Don’t hesitate to attend them either virtually or in-person because they are a great way to network with professional Amazon professionals and learn new tactics, tips and trends in the industry. Sign up for as many as you can – and use this post to help you prepare and get the most out of the experience. Oh yes, while you are away, you might want someone to look after your Amazon business and who’s better than Amazon consultants from eStore Factory.
