    “An excellent conference which acted as the motive for me to start selling online with my company Baby Casts & Prints. I attended last year as a guest and this year as a speaker recounting my experiences of the last 12 months.”
    Chris Buckley - Manchester​

    This year's Manchester Online Seller Conference was yet another brilliant, informative and highly attended event. It was held at the UKfast Campus and I am humbled by their support for the third year running.

    We’d like to thank our sponsors Khaoscontrol Cloud, Vdepot and Khoo Commerce who provided us with insightful talks and a wealth of knowledge throughout the event.

    In attendance were over 80 online sellers and businesses, and the talks covered a diverse range of topics including:

    • SEO,

    • PPC,

    • Amazon,

    • Fulfilment,

    • Content Marketing,

    • Sourcing and

    • PR & Branding.
    We’ve received lots of positive feedback again this year, and we will be back next year with another great line up of speakers from the US, Germany and Australia, discussing a variety of current topics.
