Event Sponsorship Opportunities

Event Overview

eCommerceFuel Live is our annual event held exclusively for members of the eCommerceFuel Community. Last year marked our 6th annual event which was held at the St Anthony Hotel in San Antonio, TX.  Over 200 attendees enjoyed 3 days of incredible networking, learning, and fun!  

Here are some highlights from our 2019 event in New Orleans:

Quality of Attendees

The caliber of our attendees is what sets our event apart from other eCommerce conferences. Last year more than 80% of attendees own or ran a business doing over $1 million in sales. And 48% own a business doing $2.5 million or more in sales.

As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to connect with and get in front of high-volume merchants in a small, personal environment. Despite selling out in hours last year, we limit the event to ~200 attendees to keep things intimate and maintain a very communal feeling.

  • 80% of attendees have a 7- of 8-figure business.

  • 1 in 4 attendees sell more than $5 million per year.

  • The average store size of attendees last year was $5 million.

  • 100% of surveyed attendees say they would attend again.

Why You’ll Get Insane Value as a Sponsor

As mentioned above, this event is all about the people. It’s a truly unique chance to connect with 200 high-revenue decision makers in an intimate environment.  

We limit the total number of sponsorship packages for a number of reasons. We are looking for companies that we respect and can endorse both from the stage and in private, 1-on-1 discussions. This limits the number of sponsorships we’re able to offer. 

We also don’t want our sponsors to be lost in a sea of competing logos or among other rep attendees. As an eCommerceFuel Live sponsor, you won’t just be a corporate attendee stuck behind a booth.  You’ll be a company we can get behind and feel great introducing to fellow members.  

Finally, this event is FUN!  Past events have included a parade in New Orleans (complete with marching band and police escort), a boat tour of the famous San Antonio Riverwalk, a night at a jazz club, a poker tournament, a bourbon tasting, swamp tours, and many more!

 

"It was amazing to experience the ECF community. This was the most high-quality group of entrepreneurs I can recall seeing gathered into one room. Staying close to our customers and getting insight into their problems and lives helps us with developing our product & empathizing with our customers."
