eBay University hits the headlines

No primary category set

eBay UniversityScotland is buzzing today with news of the Scottish eBay University, held yesterday in Glasgow. At the university I was constantly hearing a journalist wanted to interview an attendee, or another journalist wanted to speak to an eBay employee! Fred and Poppy from eBay’s PR company, Shine Communications, were running around the entire day fielding calls and arranging interviews.

The Scottish sellers were keen to make the most from the day whether it be from learning about how to use eBay tools, selling tips, or just getting that one question answered that would make trading on ebay a little easier. The exhibition hall offered everything from auction management tools (ChannelAdvisor), to video (vzaar), shipping solutions (Just Applications and PostalSupplies), accounting solutions (Sage) and of course eBay themselves with Monisha (eBay community manager).

Afterwards there was time for a couple of drinks in the bar before I had to run for a taxi to the airport for the plane home. I left a group of attendees still discussing the day and how they were going to put their newly acquired knowledge to work in their businesses.

If you haven’t attended eBay University yet the final 2007 event will be on the 10th November in Manchester. Sue and I will both be attending to make sure you come and say hello!

  1. Do you mean the “TameBay 1st birthday, party” that’s going to take place straight after the Manchester eBay University that everyone that reads TameBay is invited to?

    More details to come soon ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. It was nice to meet you again Chris ๐Ÿ™‚ I may come to Manchester too, hopefully to meet more people and that strange Biddy person… ๐Ÿ™‚

    So where’s the photos then?

    Can’t believe Tamebay has been going for nearly a year now ๐Ÿ˜ฎ !!

  3. Hi Chris, great to meet up with you again in Glasgow and great to visit such a wonderful city again. The ChannelAdvisor team thouroughly enjoyed themselves and look forward to making another break across the border in November. Thanks to everyone who visited our stand and thanks again to Emma from Vzaar for the post event drinks.

  4. Never been to one ,probably will never go to one,
    though I cant help thinking it seems to be less and less a learning venue and more to do with a trade show

  5. Sorry to have missed my first eBay University since March 2005 ๐Ÿ™

    I was thinking of you all having fun in Glasgow and look forward to catching up again in Manchester for the grand finale for 2007!
