Remember how it feels when you discover something that sets you apart and ahead of other people? Attending our conference is going to be two-and-a-half days of that feeling.
Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) October 12, 2007
As Was is known around the eBay community for shaking things up; going in directions people may not expect; and providing the design, advice, and strategies that help eBay sellers significantly grow their businesses. Starting in 2008, As Was will bring their fresh approach to a conference. Registration is now open for eBay sellers, trainers, consultants, vendors, and the press to attend The 2008 As Was Conference. It will be held at Disney's Yacht Club Resort at Walt Disney World, Florida on Thursday 28 February, Friday 29 February, and Saturday 1 March 2008.
The As Was Conference is the newest conference where serious eBay sellers can learn about products and services that will propel their growth with sessions that will go beyond education. Speakers and exhibitors are being hand-picked by As Was so that attendees are only exposed to companies, products, and services that As Was highly recommends. Classes will include in-depth demonstrations on how to use the tools and concepts that will boost sellers' profits. Conference attendees can expect everything you typically get with As Was: intense and personalized attention, information and training, and a passion for growing your business, all in a fun and casual environment.
The focus of the conference is to present classes, products, and services that improve the Seven Elements of an Online Sales Business(TM):
- Branding and Marketing
- Research and Strategy
- Sourcing, Manufacturing, and Storage
- Listing and Business Management Software
- Payments and Accounting
- Packing and Shipping
"Remember how it feels when you discover something that sets you apart and ahead of other people? Attending our conference is going to be two-and-a-half days of that feeling." explains As Was President, Debbie Levitt. "We know that many sellers are hungry for the type of education they can receive at the annual eBay Live! conference. In our day-to-day consulting work, we are constantly asked what companies, products, and services will help eBay sellers grow right now. We decided to combine these two with the fun environment we knew we could create, especially at Disney, and The As Was Conference was born."
Apart from As Was staff, speakers at the event include representatives from eBay, Monster.com, Six Apart, Constant Contact, ChannelAdvisor, Kyozou, buySAFE, Worldwide Brands, JDT Technologies, Keepmore.net, HammerTap, Merchant Advantage, Z-Firm, and Refund Retriever. Represented programs from eBay include Seller Tools, Affiliate Program, and eBay Stores.
Unlike traditional conferences, the two-and-a-half day conference is designed to spur attendees' excitement with sessions packed with actionable information and demonstrations. Early bird registration is $399 per person, and includes all of the presentations and sessions, expo, round table discussions, and sit-down lunch and dinner networking events in a festive atmosphere. Attendance will be capped at 400 so that attendees can have quality time with speakers and vendors.
