***Registration is closed. We will take walk-in registration at the door. Come join us!***


Amazon has an increasingly powerful role to play in the consumer shopping journey.  Of the 72% of shoppers turning to Amazon to research products, 56% go to Amazon first, ahead of any other online site.

But how do you tame the beast? What is the best way to win on pricing and logistics when working with such an influential brand?

You’ll learn:

  • The pros and cons of working with Amazon
  • What Amazon looks for in a vendor
  • Tips on maximizing your return

With nearly half of American consumers shopping first on Amazon, it’s important to examine the costs and benefits of selecting this influential company as a business partner.
