Lorrie Northington, President of eBay Marketplace operations announced today that eBay will not hold an eBay Live event in 2009
Instead, eBay plans to hold a series of small events around the country during 2009. The cities have not been announced yet, but will be announced at eBay Live 2008 in Chicago.
In the announcement Lorrie also said:
"In 2009 we are focusing our energy on smaller venues to facilitate more face-to-face interactions with our customers and community. While I can’t yet name all of the places we’ll be visiting in 2009, I can say that we intend to spend more quality time with more of you in 2009 than we have in recent memory. So while eBay Live! will not be held in 2009, we will be back with eBay Live! on August 12-14, 2010 in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center."
Lorrie have you ever been to Orlando in August? Do you have any idea how crowded, hot and humid Orlando is in August?
