My Experience:

It’s always good to be at nopCommerce Days conference. This one was the fourth conference. Out of four nopCommerce Days conferences held till now I have attended three.  The first one was in Amsterdam in the year 2016, and the second one I attended was in New York in the year 2017, and the third was this one in Las Vegas.

Last year there were about 180 participants, and this year it was nearly 300! There were two separate tracks and a dedicated room for exhibitors and networking. The atmosphere was electrified by the energy of all participants.

For me NopCommerce Days 2018 was a great opportunity to meet many of our customers who are using our products as well as services. It also helps me connect with many potential customers and partners. Apart from networking, I had and the opportunity to  share nopAccelerate’s expertise in nopCommerce, Search and Performance Optimization. Like the last two conferences, I was one of the speakers at the conference and I spoke about e-Commerce Search and its importance in conversion optimization. I’m glad that my inputs were appreciated by many participants.

Apart from the conference, the venue of the conference was great as well. Las Vegas as you know is a dream land and I had a thrilling experience.

The conference is a must-attend event, and surely, I will be back at the next conference.
