PESA to Relaunch in US AUG 2014

Internet Conference

Koalas, beaches, the outback…and world-leading ecommerce conference for online sellers in Las Vegas in August 2014. After a four-year hiatus in the USA, The Professional eBay and eCommerce Alliance (PeSA) will again stage a two-day annual conference for those at the coal-face of ecommerce. Phil Leahy, Australia’s former #1 eBay seller, has secured the license for the brand from PeSA USA founder; Joe Cortese.


 Phil has been successfully running the PeSA Internet Conference in Australia for eight years. 

Despite its small population size, Australia leads the world with the rate of new online stores opening, with a 200% increase from 2010 to 2012. Online shoppers in Australia spend more on average per order than anyone else in the world (at $142 in 2013). So perhaps its not surprising that the PeSA Internet Conference in Australia has been the longest running ecommerce conference in the land – and will use that experience to ensure the Vegas conference will be unlike any other ecommerce conference.

“Unlike other conferences, PeSA is focused on practicality – the HOW to sell online, not the THEORY of selling online. Our speakers are all people who’ve built successful online businesses themselves. The PeSA Advisory Board members are all experienced online sellers, ensuring that all conference content is highly relevant to those who are in the business of online retailing. It’s also about genuine sharing of information, not selling” says Leahy.

“The PeSA Internet Conference in Australia has hugely positive attendee feedback, with excellence scores above 90% for content, organization and networking,” continues Leahy.

“I am thrilled to host the PeSA USA conference after eight years of successful PeSA conferences in Australia. I have been involved with PeSA USA for over 10 years and I am passionate about assisting businesses with the most relevant information to help grow their businesses and provide networking with industry peers. We don’t aim to the be biggest – we aim to be the best, and our attendees tell us every year that we are.”

The Flamingo in Las Vegas will host the 14th PeSA Conference on August 21 & 22 of this year.
