Dear Michael, Andreas and Martina,
many thanks for the wonderful last weekend, we spent in Weilburg. It was a perfectly organized user meeting with almost 70 OXID users and OXID eShop partners.
The get together on Friday was at 7 p.m. and when we sat at the hotel terrace more and more participants arrived and got in contact. It was very nice to see that new OXID users, but also some from “the old forum” and also new interests got in lively discussions. Due to the weather we could even stay on the terrace until late at night, as it is usual on OXID user meetings. 😉
The official part of the weekend began on Saturday at 9 a.m. – in deed for some participants this was too early. You know who I mean… During the day the main focus was networking between like-minded people. Topics about which we learned more in the interesting speeches were for example the payment gateways ” paymorrow” and “Heidelpay”, shop optimization such as on site search, customer feedback necessity, A/B testings and recommendation services. So it was a very good mixture of things that eshop users have to consider to stay or become successful.
After dinner the second hard networking evening started and several new contacts were made. For me, as having visited several user meetings it is always enjoyable to see the faces behind partners and users as in our business you mostly communicate via new media. I am already looking forward to see everybody again on the next user meeting – the tenth one!
