On Wednesday night I went along to Power Retail's first online retail networking event, Plugged In. I don't know of any other online retail networking events in Sydney so this was the first one I'd been along to and it was fantastic.
Around 50 or so people attended, people from other online retail businesses as well as service providers to the online retail industry. I met some great people and will no doubt be staying in touch with quite a few of them.
Luke Hilton from Playhouse Digital did a great presentation full of good suggestions for online retailers. Attendees had been asked to submit their sites for review by Luke and Luke managed to review ours. We took away some good tips and Mike was pleased to know that Luke's feedback on our site was very positive. Despite our low conversion rate apparently we're doing a lot of things well.
Pics and more details from the event are here on the Power Retail website.
Thanks for organising Nirosha and Grant, it's great to have a forum to meet other people in our industry.
