Why attend The PeSA Internet Conference?

The Gold Cost Venue was chosen again for the following reasons:

  The post conference 2011 survey reported that the attendee and exhibitor’s feedback was over 70% for a return to the Gold Coast. (Each year we typically get a number of 35% Melbourne, 35% Sydney and 30% other.)
  •   Gold Coast airfares and accommodation are significantly cheaper.
  • All accommodation options are within walking distance to the venue.
  • The venue’s food, services and facilities are the world’s best practice.
  • The price of holding the event is lower on the Gold Coast and this is reflective in the ticket price to you.
  • The networking is better on the Gold Coast. The temptation to go back to the office or miss parts of the conference is taken away when the majority of people travel. This also allows you to step out of your business and make time for reflection and focus on change.
  • The weather during winter is fantastic and you have the option of staying the weekend and adding a holiday!

Ticket Prices
We are committed to keeping this event accessible to all levels of sellers.  We pride ourselves in having one of the lowest cost tickets in the world. Exhibitors and sponsors heavily subsidise our ticket price.
We also deliver a high standard of food and beverages for attendees.
(Typically some conferences will offer a box lunch for a ticket price of $1500 or more). 
If you cannot afford the cost or time then this is the conference you need to attend. (Easy to say, I know - but very true)

As the online universe expands - so do we. When I first started this event less than 5% of eBay sellers had their own website. This number now exceeds 50% and is growing at a rapid rate. We are therefore committed to helping sellers with information that will help them succeed with their own websites.  Our content offering has been expanded to 5 streams. We have also introduced workshops with experts so you can focus on a particular subject of interest. The eBay and PayPal stream will have practical “how to” content and advice. We are working hard on the agenda and will have more announcements during the month.

We have expanded the networking element and we understand the value of it. Some of the best “nuggets of gold” I have found over the years have come to me while networking at conferences.  You cannot understand the value until you invest in getting to know your fellow sellers and suppliers. The monetary value is worth every effort - the lifetime friendships that you can enjoy are worth more.

The true cost of holding our charity dinner is approx. $150 per head. We subsidise the ticket because of our belief in networking and our commitment to delivering a great charity result. For this reason we don’t offer tickets to people that have not registered for the conference. (We can look at a price for partners and I will discuss this with my team)

If you have not already please visit the site and Google+ 1 us (BTW very important to SEO) and join our LinkedIn and Facebook pages or follow us on twitter
I look forward to seeing you again and meeting new attendees.

Happy selling!




  1. Sold. I am excited about being a part of it for the second time. A world class event.

  2. The best event in the entire world for ecommerce. And I have been to dozens! And if you sell on eBay, then this is a MUST attend event for the networking alone.
