- Advanced Amazon Training with Kevin King
Global Sources Summit is more than just it’s content. It’s a community that grows together. With this in mind, we make networking just as much a priority as the learning.
This summit included 12 networking sessions spread out over the period of 3 days. The networking sessions consisted of networking breakfast buffet, networking breaks between presentations and an amazing networking after party to unwind.
What’s more, we also had an eCommerce bingo game and photo props to help attendees break the ice with each other. By the end of day 3, we made sure everyone broke out of their shells.
One of the biggest perks of being at Global Sources Summit is that it’s co-located with the Global Sources Fashion and Lifestyle trade shows. We factor in enough time while creating our agenda so that attendees can go downstairs and walk around and meet with thousands of suppliers all under the same roof.
