“With just about two weeks to go, seats are fast filling up for the conference,” said Cynthia Lizana, IMA president. “From past experience, I know this is because of the extremely high educational value of the seminars we present, as well as the unique networking opportunities for e-commerce merchants from around the country. If you’re an etailer, this is one conference you don’t want to miss.”
In addition to its educational seminars, the IMA will have a hospitality suite open from 6 pm on March 1st, 2nd and 3rd; an excellent opportunity to network with and learn from other ecommerce merchants and experts in the field. The full schedule of seminars is available at www.imamerchants.org/2010.
Registration for the IMA conference is open: conference registration is now $299/$399 for members/non-members respectively. For the first time, attendees who are short on time can also attend specific seminars a la carte, by picking and paying for specific sessions rather than the entire conference.
