EVENT: Real world speakers talk eCommerce solutions on May 19 in Erie


BEN FRANKLIN TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS is a partner in Keystone Edge. They will be sharing insights from their leadership and news from their portfolio companies in the Ben Franklin On: section.

On May 19, 2016, at the Bayfront Convention Center in Erie (1 Sassafras Pier), speakers with the Regional eCommerce Day Forum will once again present to a crowd of more than 150 attendees looking to grow their businesses online.

Now in its fourth year, this regional event — sponsored by Ben Franklin’s eMarketing Learning Center — is a one-day, info-packed forum designed for those selling B2B or B2C. Cathy von Birgelen, executive director of the eMarketing Learning Center, effectively brings together all business models regardless of experience level and makes sure the attendees accurately grasp the strategies that will increase their sales and grow their businesses.

Speakers include eCommerce entrepreneurs who will share lessons learned across multiple sectors, lessons that can then be translated to other areas such as those who handle the private label supplements dropship sector and the like. There will also be industry experts offering up trends, best practices, and a variety of practical solutions to everyday situations. This year’s Keynote Speaker is Ross Kramer, CEO and co-founder of Listrak. Ross is an internationally recognized emarketing expert who started his first business in the basement of his parent’s home in Lititz, PA, while still in high school.

Here’s just a small sampling of some of the comments from last year’s Forum:
