eCommerceFuel Live (Oct 7-9)

The Conference for Independent Store Owners


Join a group of vetted six and seven figure store owners October 7th – 9th for three days of learning, networking and world class musical entertainment in Nashville! The small, intimate atmosphere is one of our attendees favorite parts of the event so we’ll be limiting registration to 100 people.  For more details, read on.  


Highly Experienced & Vetted Attendees

What makes eCommerceFuel Live different than other events? Without question it’s the quality of our attendees. Personal conversations and connections are the most meaningful part of any event, and we work hard to make sure you won’t be disappointed in this area.

Something to consider: More than half of the roughly 70 attendees that are registered at the time of writing this own or run independent eCommerce businesses that do more than a million dollars in annual sales. That’s 50%+ of our attendees with seven figure (or larger) eCommerce businesses.

Attendees are required at a minimum to own/run a six figure eCommerce business or have a year of professional experience in the eCommerce field, so you’re guaranteed to learn as much from your conversations over drinks as you will from the keynotes.

Dynamic & Experienced Speakers

We don’t believe in sitting in chairs for hours on end and listening to professionals speak at you. Instead, we select a handful of top eCommerce veterans to share their real-world experience with you. It’s engaging, it’s fun and you’ll walk away feeling inspired.

This year we have the privilege of hosting the following keynote speakers in Nashville:

I was so busy learning new strategies and having great conversations with everyone this past weekend I seem to have forgot to sleep. And my to-do list has tripled. Great event guys, it’s already on my must-attend list for next year. – Brandon Eley,

Learn from Experienced Store Owners

It’s rare to be able to find yourself among other independent store owners that know all about the ups and downs of being an eCommerce merchant.   To help you get the most out of that time, we’ll be organizing breakout sessions for diving deep on a particular topic. Due to the need to allow store owners to speak candidly and without reservation in small sessions about all aspects of their business (including platforms and services), the breakout sessions are the only part of the conference non-store owners aren’t eligible to attend.

Breakout sessions

Breakout sessions from last year included PPC, Facebook Advertising, Working with China, Sourcing Products, Email Marketing and so much more. Depending on the focus you’re hoping to learn more about, you’ll gain valuable insight and come out of these sessions with a very long to do list.


I could go on and on about how fantastic this conference was. That was the best investment I’ve ever made on my business. You shouldn’t even debate going to the next event – you’re going”. – Allen Walton,

It’s Not ALL Business……

Sure, this will be a great investment for your business.  But we plan on having a great time when we’re in Nashville! Each day we’ll have something fun and exciting planned from parties to live music downtown Nashville – so you’ll never be at a loss for what to do.

If you’re coming and interested in leading a breakout session on a particular topic, please let us know! Ditto if you’d like to give a talk, but we have far fewer spots available for full-on presentations. Please contact our community manager Laura Serino ( with what you’re interested in doing and we’ll be in touch.

When should I fly in and out?

We’d recommend getting into Nashville no later than 5:00 EST on Wednesday to make sure you can stop in to the opening party at the Gaylord.  The event schedule goes through all of Thursday and Friday.

I still have more questions!

Please reach out to Laura (, and she’ll do her best to help answer it for you.
