Magento’s Imagine eCommerce Conference Starts Today

After much anticipation, February 7th 2011 is finally here.  Today is the first day of Magento’s inaugural Imagine eCommerce Conference.  More than 700 merchants, developers, partners, industry experts, sponsors and speakers have all converged in Los Angeles at the Hilton LAX for the opening reception that begins tonight.

Everyone is very excited, and a pre-conference buzz has already sparked on Twitter.  It’s going to be a fantastic event.

The confirmed list of keynote speakers is an all-star roster of eCommerce and technology visionaries:

  • Blake Nordstrom, CEO, Nordstroms
  • Alfred Linn, Former COO, Zappos
  • Marten Mickos, Former CEO, MySQL AB
  • Warren Aldeman, President, GoDaddy
  • Naveed Anwar, Senior Director, PayPal X Developer Platform, PayPal
  • Brian Walker, Forrester Research

Be sure to sign in early at registration on Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning.  The conference is entirely sold out, and we want to make sure everyone makes it into the Tuesday morning keynotes on time.  You can check in beginning at 12pm this afternoon, and the registration desk will remain open until 8pm this evening.
