Despite the sweltering heat, Melbourne’s online retail community turned out for last night’s PowerRetail.net Plugged In Networking event to hear industry insights and have a drink to cool off with peers – check out the photos!
Melbourne’s typically extreme weather combinations yesterday did little to keep the retail industry away from PowerRetail.net’s first Melbourne Plugged in Networking Event, held in the heart of the CBD at Tony Starr’s Kitten Club.
Attended by over 50, with a solid mix of retailers, industry experts and solution providers, the event was presented by digital agency White Labelled, with managing director Paul Wilson sharing insights into site optimisation, as well as presenting live site reviews on a range of pureplay and multichannel Australian retailers.
“We were pumped to see such a fantastic turnout for our first Melbourne event, particularly on a warm night close to Christmas,” said Grant Arnott, editor and publisher of PowerRetail.net. “We’re delighted to have such interest and support, and will continue working with retailers and suppliers to capitalise on the huge opportunities ahead.”
With the recent success of PowerRetail.net’s Plugged In Networking in both Sydney and Melbourne, more events are slated for 2011, so watch this space for events dates and details.
