MagentoLive UK Takes London by Storm

image

On November 13th, Magento, once again, took London by storm with the first-ever MagentoLive, held at the Etc. Venues St. Paul. The one-day conference gathered over 500 industry experts, merchants, developers, Magento partners, and community members together to discuss Magento!

Innovation Fuels MagentoLive

Roy Rubin kicked off the event with an opening keynote, where he talked about Magento being not only a technology leader, but an innovation leader. His presentation added to the energy and excitement to the event, which was felt throughout the remainder of the day. John Lunn, EMEA Director of Innovation, PayPal, took to the stage after Roy, where he discussed the future of online and offline payment solutions.

In addition to the keynotes, attendees had the opportunity to attend breakout sessions focusing on a variety of topics, including scaling Magento for their needs, creating dynamic customizations, increasing conversion rates, customer loyalty, and much more. The sessions gave the attendees a deeper look into the innovation surrounding Magento.

Outside of the presentations, the attendees had the chance to meet and mingle with over 25 sponsors exhibiting products and services, as well as with other International attendees from over 20 countries. There was a constant buzz amongst the attendees as they shared their own Magento tips and experiences, and as they looked forward to the legendary After Party—a Magento tradition–held at the local Amber Bar.

If you missed any speaker presentations, be sure to watch them on the MagentoLive UK site.

Imagine Winning the Trip of a Lifetime to Bora Bora?!

image

Magento’s annual Imagine Conference is not only great for business, but for pleasure too. Just ask Krister Lenman, CFO of Swedish-based Vaimo.

He pitted his Magento wits against four other conference attendees’ during an Imagine 2012 game show contest, and won a week long stay at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel in Bora Bora. The prize was courtesy of conference keynote speaker and former Four Seasons president Jim FitzGibbon.

Just a few weeks ago, Lenman and his wife made the 40-hour trip from Sweden to Bora Bora to experience firsthand the service-oriented culture that FitzGibbon spoke about at Imagine 2012.

“Bora Bora is the most beautiful place we have ever been and probably will ever be. The surroundings, the hotel, the staff and the food are flawless,” Lenman wrote to Magento. “It certainly is matching the Magento brand ‘Top class, world class!’ Thanks again, Magento!”

View the video below to see how Lenman won his way to paradise and visit our new video gallery to relive the excitement of Imagine 2012. Then, turn green with envy by checking out photos of his recent sun-drenched fun.
