We can assure you that GPeC Summer School is a must-attend event and our friends from past editions can confirm it. Here’s why:

You live e-commerce

From morning until lunch daily, you take your daily intake of e-commerce steroids with us! You’re in for 12 e-commerce workshops x 90 minutes each, a total of 18 e-commerce training hours based on e-commerce tips & tricks coming from the best specialists. Only practical advice and experience sharing. During these 18 training hours we’ll answer the following questions:

  • how can your online shop sell more?
  • where should you invest your marketing budget effectively and how do you calculate your ROI?
  • what can you promote your online shop without significant marketing budget?
  • short/long term decisions: marketplace or your own online shop?
  • how do you drive relevant traffic to your online store?
  • how do you choose the right partner in fast delivery services?
  • how do you achieve customer loyalty without additional material benefits?
  • how do you build a team that is loyal, proactive and results-oriented?
  • is your website easy to use by visitors or do they leave your website without placing an order because the website is not usable enough?
  • what e-commerce platform is suitable for your business and what should you take into account?
  • how do you communicate in social media and how can social media help grow your business?

… these are just part of the topics we’ll answer for you during the 12 workshops of the GPeC 2014 E-Commerce Summer School: Conversion Rate Optimization, Usability, SEO, SEM, Web Analytics, Business Strategy & Management, E-Commerce Tools, Logistics and Fast Delivery, Social Media, E-Mail Marketing – we’ll cover all of them in 5 days during our intensive training sessions so that you become more performant!

In E-Commerce, 2 heads are better than 1!

Each day after training, you get the chance to discuss face-to-face with the trainers, ask questions and ask for professional advice for your business. The added-value doesn’t stop here: you share business experience, you exchange ideas and you create long-term relationships with all the participants. At GPeC Summer School, you breathe e-commerce every moment and you have the chance to build a new family – your online family. That’s why for 4 editions, GPeC E-Commerce Summer School participants continue to meet as a group long after the program has ended.

Team building with the most amazing people in the e-commerce and digital industry

The afternoons and evenings are saved for team building activities and networking time over mulled wine and quitar chords by the campfire.

We’ll play charades, football, table-tennis, pool and we’ll put some effort into the team-building tests (from rope dancing on a log wearing gas masks to creating a TV ad for an online shop selling brushcutters) – these are all part of the GPeC Summer School. Believe us: you’ll wish to stay with us for more than 5 days!
