What people have to say about Cross Border Summit
Davide Nicolucci, founder of Growth Hack Consulting HK is a returning speaker and an active member in the community, sharing on Amazon PPC and other growth strategies to grow on and off Amazon, he says,
“Many people ask me why they should come to the Cross Border Summit, what is in it for them. I say this is the best place in Mainland China to get on-site relationships with leaders in the community. For me personally, I have grown my network and made long lasting business relationships from attending CBS”.
Nate Ginsburg, founder and CEO of SellerPlex, who has sold his Amazon business, grown others, and is currently an investor in multiple businesses in the space thoroughly enjoyed the event.
“I have been able to share my knowledge and not only made relationships, but also gotten invaluable feedback from other experts and leaders in the space.”
“I attended Cross Border Summit in 2019. They have wonderful speakers and I learnt a great deal of knowledge on e-commerce and FBA. Mike did a great job inviting high quality experts to the summit. I made a lot of new friends and potential business partners through the session. This is of great value and I strongly recommend anyone who is into e-commerce, regardless whether you are from Asia or the west, to come to the summit”.One of the attendees, Jeffrey
Guangzhou’s the right place
Cross Border Summit came to Guangzhou, China for the first time this year, with previous years in Shenzhen city. It is strategically positioned around the trade show season, when business executives from around the world are visiting Mainland China for sourcing products. Even under today’s conditions of the US/China trade war, the event was well represented and many leaders in the space came both to speak and to learn.
Launching of Ecommerce Gladiator
Michael also was excited to release his fourth book, Ecommerce Gladiator, the story of starting an Amazon FBA company all the way to sale. Handing out autographed print copies of his book launch was a special way to thank and connect with all the attendees.
““The future of cross-border business is at an interesting cross roads in the world, and we are happy to have been able to host our fourth annual Cross Border Summit at this time. With challenging times with the trade war, this is when a community here is most important, and we are happy to have been able to bring people together,” says Michael Michelini, Founder of Global From Asia, and also the Organizer of Cross Border Summit.
