Amazon sellers, e-tailers and other e-commerce professionals are expected to gather by the thousands at JCON’s upcoming 6th annual E-Commerce Expo and Conference taking place on February 12th at The Palace in Brooklyn.
650 men and women turned out for last year’s sold out expo, the largest e-commerce event for the metro area’s Jewish community, gaining a wealth of invaluable information, and organizers are anticipating an even larger crowd this year from those looking to grow their online businesses.
A newer and longer format will give participants an even greater opportunity to learn from some of the best and the brightest in the business, with a full seven hours of programming including seminars, a trade show, a CEO forum and roundtable breakaways.
In the first segment of the event, four separate educational tracks will allow participants to hone in on the information that is most relevant to their businesses, covering the ins and outs of Amazon reselling, Amazon private labeling, branded e-tail and business development.
Presenters will include high profile representatives of eBay, B&H Photo and other prominent names in the world of e-commerce.
After enjoying a three hour long trade show featuring more than 70 vendors and a gourmet buffet dinner, participants will be able to take advantage of another two hours of critical information during a CEO forum and breakaway tables tackling the complexities of Amazon compliance, navigating relationships with Chinese suppliers, Amazon and social media marketing strategies and branding and financial strategies, among other important topics.
“Year after year we have seen that the expo has been a vital resource, one that has helped community members in their quest for lucrative business opportunities that will allow them to provide for their families,” said Rabbi Yehoshua Werde, director of the Crown Heights Young Entrepreneurs. “With a focus on education and networking, participants walk out of the expo armed with the skills they need to succeed in a highly competitive environment.”
Having accomplished individuals sharing their expertise with those who hope to follow in their entrepreneurial footsteps is truly inspiring, noted Shea Rubenstein, director of the Jewish Community Council of Marine Park.
“I am happy to see successful business people coming to the E-commerce Expo, not to benefit themselves, but to help people who are starting out,” said Rubenstein.
Organized by the Crown Heights Young Entrepreneurs, Jewish Community Council of Marine Park, and the Emergency Parnassa Initiative, this year’s expo is sponsored by SGM Socher, The Surplus , eBay, SellerCloud, , Amster Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP, Saul N. Friedman & Co, B&C Industries, ConnectBooks, PR Brand Marketing and Media Sponsor COLLive.com.
