eBay Live! online booking now open

No primary category set

ebay liveThe wait is over and booking is now open for eBay Live! scheduled for 19th – 21st June this year. If you’ve not booked your place get online and book it fast, until April 30th you’ll save $45 on your registration cost.

Unlike last year you can pay for eBay Live! with PayPal, registration actually works as it should do. The one and only niggle was the insistance that I choose a US State to be resident in, even if you’re registering from elsewhere in the world… I’m now living in “Alabama, United Kingdom”.

So that’s it Sue and I have flights booked, hotels booked and eBay Live! passes are booked. See you in Chicago ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. The extra isn’t for the gala, Jade; that’s included in the tickets. The extra is for priority passes, which – amongst other things – gets you into the gala first.

  2. LOL. I’d say getting into the gala when it’s got going a bit is a better idea, though last year’s lunch with the executives was interesting.

  3. Would lurve to go, good price for tickets though but I think with flights & accom it would be too much for me on my lonesome this year ๐Ÿ™ Are you booked for pole dancing at the vzaar party Chris? I missed it at Manchester ๐Ÿ™

  4. Book your tickets and then work hard for the next three months to pay for them! You have 90 days to save up ๐Ÿ˜€

    Not only is food etc dirt cheap in the US but if you pay for everything in March you can write it off this year’s tax bill if you talk nicely to your accountant! How’s that for an incentive?

  5. Hi Chris & Sue

    How much did you pay for flights and hotel?

    I have always wanted to go but it usually clashes with my daughters birthday. A bit earlier this year so I may go if it does not cost me an arm and a leg!

  6. ร‚ยฃ470 flights from Heathrow to O’Hare and add on a hotel booked through expedia. Not too bad at all – plenty of choice still left ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. The schuh boys are signed up to go to Live again this year…should be an interesting one this year! Boston was good, but with all the changes this year..how public do you think JD will be?

  8. I don’t think he has a choice but to be public this year. Last year he looked decidedly awkward at the lunch meeting for priority pass holders, he’s really more comfortable with investors from what I can deduce. This year he’ll be center stage though so we shall see ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Schuh boys, I rather got the feeling last year that standing up at the front of Live isn’t JD’s favourite place to be. Rajiv OTOH was pretty good, and very well received…. so it’ll be interesting to see who does what.

  10. Hi Chris & Sue…


    Yes the priority pass lunch was not his best moment in the public domain, he took a side seat and just let Meg & Peirre do the talking, but he has no choice this year, he has got to be more available to the community. We got stuck on a table with these two girls who sell fashion from New York, and i must say it was one of the funniest lunches i have ever attended…hopefully the mood at Live will be the same this year.


    Yes Rajiv came across very well at the Keynote. Shame that with all of the changes that eBay is going through, why is paypal not evolving in the same way…

  11. Well, Rajiv’s moved back to eBay now – he’s JD’s #2. And I think PayPal *is* evolving: remember the promise Rajiv made at the keynote to get all addresses confirmed, anywhere in the world? PayPal is some enormous (40, off the top of my head) percent of eBay’s turnover, it’s consistently profitable *and* it’s spreading itself way beyond the auction market. I think PayPal’s doing okay ๐Ÿ˜€
