Recap: Magento’s Imagine 2014
It’s hard to believe it’s already been a week since our team touched down in Las Vegas for Magento Imagine 2014! And what an experience it was! This year 1900 attendants from over 40 countries took over the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for 3 amazing days of networking, collaborating and knowledge sharing with the global Magento community. Our team set up booth in the marketplace along with 100 other sponsors, and had the opportunity to meet with people from all over the world. Surprisingly we got overwhelmed response from merchants, agencies and magento partners.
It was a truly amazing time, and we loved every moment! We especially enjoyed talking to new merchants about the endless possibilities on Magento and meeting up with new industry and hosting partners like Zerolag, appserver.io, Constant Contact, eBizMarts|POS, Postcode Anywhere, WebShopApps, LiveClicker, MageStore, Oink, Skrill, and Yotpo. Although we enjoyed all of the keynotes, some of our favorites wereMark Lavelle – SVP of Product &Strategy, eBay Inc. and Malcolm Gladwell – bestselling author.
In the event, Magento has established itself as the leader in eCommerce with 30% market share. Some of the major announcements this year were release of Magento Community 1.9 and Magento Enterprise 1.14 with responsive theme and Connected Commerce Solution from eBay.
Looking forward for next year Imagine @ Wayne Hotel, April 20th – 22nd in Las Vegas.
