ChannelAdvisor Catalyst Conference Almost Sold Out, Expansion of Show Draws Record Number of Participants

Research Triangle Park, NC – March 15, 2012 – ChannelAdvisor, a global e-commerce software provider that helps retailers be seen and sell more across online channels, today announced that its annual Catalyst Conference is almost sold out. A record number of attendees will join the intimate networking and educational event to hear from the top e-commerce evangelists and trail-blazing retailers.

“Catalyst is filling up quickly,” said ChannelAdvisor President and COO David Spitz. “Our plan was to grow Catalyst by moving the show to Vegas, and participants have exceeded our expectations with an overwhelming response. We are now near capacity for the show, so I suggest that anyone interested in attending register very soon. This is going to be an excellent event — one you don’t want to miss.”

Catalyst will be held on April 16-18, 2012, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, and will focus on NewCommerce — trends that span social media to cross-border trade, tablet computing and “couch commerce,” new smartphone capabilities and more, all of which creates an ‘anytime, anywhere’ level of accessibility for shoppers and represents the accelerating complexity for retailers and manufacturers trying to reach shoppers.

Catalyst presenters include industry thought leaders such as Google General Manager of Enterprise Search Matt Eichener, Amazon Senior Vice President of Seller Services Sebastian Gunningham, eBay Vice President of Merchant Development Michael Jones, online marketing expert and author of The Thank You Economy Gary Vaynerchuk, Citi Managing Director of Internet Research Mark Mahaney, Forrester Research, Inc. Vice President and Research Director Zia Daniell Wigder and One Kings Lane CEO Doug Mack.

Two pre-conferences will precede Catalyst this year on Monday, April 16 – AutoCommerce will focus on automotive and powersports retailers and ChannelAdvisor Academy includes sessions for ChannelAdvisor users. Presenters from eBay Motors, Amazon, Terapeak, CollisionSync and more will cover topics such as mobile site development, understanding fitment and new marketplaces to consider. The ChannelAdvisor Academy pre-conference will include hands-on, how-to sessions led by ChannelAdvisor product managers and service team members.
