A look back at VendorCon24

“INSIGHTFUL, ENGAGING, SUPPORTIVE” …

Just a few of the words described from our past attendees. Check out our rave reviews and decide for yourself.

“The round table discussions provided insight from account experts, and in several instances, answers to account specific questions that will directly help with our future vendor operations.

I came away with increased confidence and the feeling that Amazon is perhaps less automated and more interactive than I previously thought.”

OUR INCREDIBLE LINE UP OF SPONSORS TBA SOON FOR VENDOR CONNECT 2025.

Register for the event and start the day with tea, coffee and pastries.

Carina McLeod, Founder and CEO of Vendor Society and eCommerce Nurse (and ex-Amazon Vendor Manager) will provide a brief introduction to the day.

Host: Carina McLeod, Ex Amazon Vendor Manager, CEO at eCommerce Nurse.

Panelists: Andrew Pearl, VP Industry Insights, Profitero | Rob Murray, Amazon Client Services Lead, eCommerce Nurse & Ex Vendor

Carina will lead a discussion on the strategies vendors should adopt to see continued growth on a platform where it’s becoming more complex to sell, competition is rife, margins are getting tighter, and the cost of advertising continues to rise, all of which is exacerbated by an increasingly challenging economic environment.

Speaker: Martin Heubel, Strategy & Amazon Consultant, Consulterce

Join Martin Heubel for a critical examination of the “State of Amazon” and discover why the ecommerce giant’s retail transformation is signalling the need for brands to proactively secure and increase their profit margins. This presentation will outline three proven pillars of success that vendors can focus on to improve their profit margins and position themselves for lasting success with the online retailer.

It’s time for a break, a morning pick-me-up and a chance to connect with fellow vendors.

Speak with our software exhibitors and the eCommerce Nurse team to see how their solutions and services could benefit your business.

Host: Owen Aderibigbe, Business Development Manager at eCommerce Nurse

Panelists: Chris Lawlor, Head of Ecommerce, Big Potato Games | Louise Armour, Head of Business Development, Rosetta Brands

Owen will lead a discussion on the common question most vendors have asked or are currently asking themselves: should they remain a vendor, become a seller or is hybrid the best way forward? There is no one-size-fits-all answer, and much well-intended but ill-informed advice can often steer vendors in the wrong direction. Learn from experts who have successfully transitioned to seller and hybrid and hear about their challenges, wins and key considerations.

Speakers: George Meressa, CEO and Founder at Clear Ads | Maxim Gennari, Senior Advertising Specialist, Clear Ads

To see continued growth, brands must build a full-funnel advertising strategy that focuses on attracting new-to-brand customers and expanding their customer reach. So many brands focus all their efforts on campaigns that drive purchase and intent, but there is a limit to what they can achieve by only focusing on converting current demand into a sale. Brands should also build campaigns that create demand by driving awareness and consideration.

In this session, we will discuss what a full-funnel strategy looks like and where brands should invest their budget, time and resources.

Indulge in a buffet lunch and take some time to network with other vendors. 

Have a chat with our software exhibitors and the eCommerce Nurse team to see how their solutions could benefit your business.

You will separate into 3 discussion groups based on your chosen topic. Discussion groups will be facilitated in 3 separate areas and based around 3 core questions. 

There are 3 options available, select the 2 sessions  that will provide your business the most value. These topics are as follows:

Roundtable Discussions

Option 1: Is Amazon Vendor sustainable for your business?

With cost prices going up, the cost of advertising increasing and margins getting squeezed by Amazon’s annual agreements, it is becoming even more challenging to make the vendor side of the business a sustainable account long-term.

It may seem all doom and gloom but vendors are getting creative and finding ways to navigate the challenges. This discussion group will be based around the following 3 questions:

  1. How do you manage the annual terms negotiations with Amazon? Are there any strategies you have implemented that are driving positive results?
  2. Are you having any success getting Amazon to approve cost price increases? What approaches have worked for you? 
  3. What strategies have you implemented to improve margin and avoid products falling into CRAP status?

Facilitator: Martin Heubel

Option 2: Where should you be investing your budget to drive the greatest return?

Everything comes at a cost on Amazon, from managing your account to driving traffic and generating sales. The question many vendors are asking is where should they invest their budget and resources to get the best ROI? 

Investment comes in many forms on Amazon and we will base the discussion around the following 3 questions:

  1. How are you managing your Amazon business, should you outsource or build an inhouse team?
  2. Do you have an AVS and are you seeing fruits from this relationship?
  3. Where are you investing your marketing budget and seeing the greatest return? Advertising, promotions and/or marketing packages?

Facilitator: Owen Aderibigbe

Option 3: How are you using data to drive incremental growth on Amazon?

There is a wealth of data available but this can either lead to data paralysis where businesses are stalling decision making or confusion and overwhelm where vendors are not clear on the data they should be looking at and how to use it to help grow their Amazon account.

To succeed on Amazon today you need to be making data led decisions. We will be basing the discussion around the following 3 questions:

  1. What Amazon reports are you using to help you identify opportunities for growth and improvement?
  2. Are you pulling this data directly from Amazon or do you have external software or an API?
  3. Are you using any software or reports not available on Amazon that give you greater insights?

Facilitator: Rob Murray
