Amazon to hold online selling summit for Australian retailers

E-commerce retailer Amazon has released details of a summit to be held in Sydney in November to advise Australia’s retailers on setting up and growing online businesses.
The first-ever Amazon Marketplace Seller Summit is being run in partnership with the Australian Retailers Association (ARA) and small business network, the SME Association of Australia (SMEA).
Amazon Marketplace is an online platform that enables third-party retailers to list items for sale on Amazon’s website, elsewhere orders can be fulfilled by the merchant or by Amazon itself, though the company has not released any information confirming whether fulfilment by Amazon will be offered in Australia, or on what timeline.
Amazon has reported that over 500 businesses have already registered to sell their products on the Amazon website when Marketplace goes live.
Rocco Braeuniger, Country Manager, Amazon Australia and Fabio Bertola, Head of Amazon Marketplace in Australia, will speak at the event, along with various other retail experts and entrepreneurs.
“The internet and technology have the power to level the playing field between big and small businesses, empowering Australian companies, large and small, to grow their sales and their business online,” said Braeuniger. “We look forward to enabling local businesses to make their products available to a wide audience, not only in Australia, but also worldwide.”
Russell Zimmerman, Executive Director, ARA, said: “We believe that Amazon’s arrival brings new possibilities to Australian retailers, small and large. We are pleased to work alongside Amazon to bring the Seller Summit to Sydney so that businesses and retailers alike can receive practical advice and guidance on how to make the most of Amazon Marketplace.”
The free, half-day event will take place 13 November at Jones Bay Wharf in Sydney.
