2018 Manchester Online Seller Conference Highlights

Panel Discussion What is the Future of Ecommerce in 2018 and Beyond - Copy

“An excellent conference which acted as the motive for me to start selling online with my company Baby Casts & Prints. I attended last year as a guest and this year as a speaker recounting my experiences of the last 12 months.”

Chris Buckley – Manchester

It was another fantastic conference in Manchester organised in collaboration with Digitl . The venue was the UKfast campus and I am humbled by their support for the 3rd year running.  In attendance, there were 80+ online sellers and businesses. The topics were diverse – SEO, Paid Ads, Amazon, Fulfilment, Content Marketing, Sourcing and PR & Branding.

We’d like to thank our sponsors Khaoscontrol Cloud, Vdepot and Khoocommerce.

They were all extremely useful and we have had lots of positive feedback. We will be back next year with another line up of speakers.
