A2X will be attending Prosper Show 2019!
Estimated reading time: 6 minutes.
Prosper Show is an annual conference for established Amazon sellers to learn more about best practise education, new ways of doing things and opportunities for networking with others in the FBA space.
A wide range of service providers attend this event to meet new and existing clients, and learn from one another. The full exhibitor list can be found here.
“Aimed at online sellers seeking to improve their business on Amazon, this conference features several ex-Amazon leaders and CEOs/General Managers from leading Amazon marketplace solution providers using workshops and seminars to help sellers learn how to build better online businesses. We lead with education first, while also providing sellers with access to dozens of leading solution/service providers in the Amazon ecosystem.”
When and where?
This year, Prosper Show will be held at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort (next to the Las Vegas Convention Centre) between March 17th - 19th.
Why do we attend Prosper Show?
As a networking event, Prosper Show is a great place for us to connect with existing clients, and share the vision of A2X with other established sellers. But that’s not the only reason why we attend…
As members of the Amazon Marketplace Developer Council, we are always very interested to learn about the best ways that the Amazon ecosystem can improve to help sellers and shoppers get what they want.
The way we do business is changing rapidly. Ecommerce is growing at an astonishing rate, as new opportunities and innovations arise every day. It is through being a part of the conversation that we are able to remain on the leading edge of business and accounting, and continue to provide sellers with solutions that they genuinely value.
Taking a collaborative approach
“1,000+ Amazon sellers that attended the 2018 event. 59% of those Amazon sellers reported sales over $1m/year, which puts them in the top 1% of Amazon sellers."
The most established and successful third-party merchants tend to lead the charge on taking advantage of new opportunities and being on the leading edge of Amazon FBA selling. So the Prosper Show is the perfect place for us to keep up with what’s happening at the forefront of the Amazon seller community.
Cloud-based services such as Xero Accounting, Cin7 Inventory systems and HelloProfit analytics software are the future of eCommerce. When business is done in the cloud, a wide range of doors open up for ways that sellers can make their businesses more efficient as a result.
Here at A2X, we have made the most of the power of automations by connecting Seller Central with cloud accounting systems. But we are just one component of a much larger shift - a movement towards automations reducing our workload, and building more productive businesses.
What’s different this year?
We have been attending Prosper Show for a few years now, but this year we’re doing something a little different…
To help Amazon sellers get the most out of this wonderful event, we are bringing along some of our local partners to share their insight and knowledge about accounting, tax, increasing profits and planning for the future.
