Magento Live UK 2014 and Other Magento Events of This Summer

Summer is always great for classy vacations or spectacular trips, but it is also perfect for professional communications and making new business contacts. This summer is not very abundant with Magento events, but it can still offer true Magento enthusiasts some exciting conferences, hackathons, and meetups.

So, those who wants more Magento events this summer can take the advantage of our digest. Magento Live UK 2014, July 14-15 is the firs in our scroll.

Magento Live UK 2014

The conference is held in the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London hotel, which is situated in the true heart of the city next to Big Ben and the House of Parliament, the London Eye and the National Theater. At the same time Heathrow, one of the five London airports, is only 40 minutes away from the venue.

The schedule of the conference is very busy and starts on Monday, July 14. The pre-event day includes solution and industry partner meetings, and several tracks for developers, marketing specialists and entrepreneurs. The Opening Evening Networking Event finishes this day and proclaims the official start of Magento Live UK 2014.

The second day of the conference begins from the registration of attendees and consists of several special, three general, and four breakout sessions divided into three tracks - the technical, marketing, and business one.

Magento responsive design, the upcoming holiday season, omni-channel marketing opportunities, the personalization of sales, security and performance tips are the main topics to be presented during the conference.

Located at the same venue (Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London) the hackaton is going to be a great chance for passionate Magento developers to get a free admission to Magento Live UK and present their extension within the speaking slot provided for winners.

Magento Meetup in Amsterdam, June 29
One more exciting summer meetup will take place in Amsterdam, June 29 and provide a great opportunity for all comers to talk to the newly inaugurated Magento evangelist Ben Marks personally. Here are only several names of the participants: Guido Jansen, Vladimir Kerkhoff, and Ben Marks.

The starting point is supposed to be at the Hoppe Cafe, Spui 18-20, Amsterdam 1012, but the whole tour of Amsterdam promises to be a bit longer. :) Join the party.

So, this summer offers some truly valuable opportunities to join the Magento community or refresh good old connections and get new ones. Don’t miss these great occasions to network and communicate.
