Retail Global

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore

Retail Global Events was founded in 2005 by eBay Australia’s #1 Seller Phil Leahy as a conference to help other Australian eBay sellers be more successful both locally and internationally.

The annual Australian conference has evolved over the years from being eBay specific (PeSa Conference), to Marketplace focussed (Retail Global Conference) and now to servicing the whole eCommerce industry (Retail Fest). Since finding its home on the Gold Coast in 2011 the event has cemented itself as the connection and content event of the industry, consistently attracting over 1,000 attendees, with the 2021 and 2022 events attracting 1500+ and 1650+ attendees respectively.

Retail Global is driven by community and the mantra ‘Sharing knowledge without fear’ which is why the business is consistently recognised as a leader globally for trusted and actionable content, connecting businesses & building community.

Regardless of the event, Retail Global is a place where the smallest seller can connect with giants of industry to share knowledge, learn from each other and grow their business.
