As sellers start to wind down for a well deserved few days off at Christmas many will be putting plans into place for the next year. What better time to think about increasing your knowledge of eBay selling and ecommerce in general?

eBay.ie University/Academy

Today eBay Ireland have announced a series of training events kicking off in Dublin on January 21st with the first eBay University of the year. eBay Ireland hold their University events as an evening class running from 6.30pm – 9.00pm.

Running parallel to the eBay University is the Irish eBay Academy half-day workshops, focusing on using eBay as a selling tool. The eBay Academy will be visiting towns across Ireland right through to September, and even better the cost is subsidised by the Foras Áiseanna Saothair (National Training and Employment Authority).

ChannelAdvisor Catalyst

Back in the UK ChannelAdvisor have announced the dates for the 2008 Catalyst Conference taking place on 21st – 22nd April in London. It’s a little early to give full details of the schedule of Catalyst but we hear Scot Wingo the CEO of ChannelAdvisor will be in the UK for the event.

In 2007 speakers from Yahoo!, eBay, Amazon and Google came together sharing their insight on the shape of ecommerce in the UK. Google gave the first public presentation on Google Checkout and Amazon is a powerhouse for ecommerce merchants and just keeps on growing.

Watch out this year for the newest Internet phenomenons to be presenting at Catalyst. I predict social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace will feature on the ecommerce landscape of tomorrow.

If you’re thinking of booking for Catalyst there is a special rate of just £79.00 up until December 31st (Online booking hasn’t opened yet so drop Andrea Ransom of ChannelAdvisor an email to [email protected]).

In the US, Catalyst will be revisiting Pinehurst NC on April 1st – 3rd, 2008 and on July 3rd – 4th Catalyst visits Queensland in Australia.
