600+ Attendees from 27 different countries gathered

This past February more than 600 Magento merchants, partners, developers and eCommerce experts from 27 countries gathered in Los Angeles for the first-ever Magento Imagine eCommerce Conference. Imagine brought together the best minds of eCommerce for three days discussion, learning, networking, inspiration... and of course – imagination! The conference was an amazing event, and we thank all of you who joined us in LA to make Imagine a phenomenal success.

Imagine was a three day whirlwind of keynotes, business and technical breakouts, networking sessions and parties. Magento announced important new products including Enterprise Edition 1.10, Magento Go and the Magento Go Platform, and Magento Mobile for iPad and Android. Magento also announced a new Expert Consulting Group as well as Magento U, a professional curriculum of classroom and online training for merchants, designers and developers on Magento.

Here you can watch full length Magento keynotes, download slides from breakout presentations, and view photo slideshows from the entire event. It’s the closest you can come to being there, without actually attending!
