Empowery Women's


Date: July 16-17, Location: Las Vegas


Our inaugural event in February 2020 was groundbreaking. It set a precedent for the inclusion of women in eCommerce both on the stage and in attendance. For too long, women have wondered if they truly belong in eCommerce and if they, too, can be successful. Let's be clear; they can and we want to help them get there. But let's also be clear about who should attend this event. This event is for men and women alike, but the difference between this and so many other conferences is that we will have exclusively women speakers on stage. We were the first to attempt this and after the huge success of our first event, we're so excited for what year 2 will bring!


This year will be no different. In fact, we're stepping up our game to accommodate more people. This year, we're hosting the Women's Conference as a hybrid event. You have the option to attend live on only day 1 to see the speakers, or on both day 1 and day 2 to attend the workshops as well, OR, you can choose to attend digitally since there are still many areas that are affected by the pandemic and may not have the ability to travel just yet.


If you are attending digitally, be aware that this is not a series of speakers sharing slides that you can put on in the background and tune out after a few hours. We encourage you to be prepared to BE ON CAMERA WITH YOUR MIC WORKING so you can meet and get to know your morning group and your afternoon group. Set aside the day, introduce yourself to your groups, meet and converse with people who may be facing some of the same challenges as you. Make the most of this opportunity to network with other sellers, service providers and the big influencers you've always wanted to meet, and let's really have some fun!


Live, in-person networking, as well as digital networking for those who cannot travel. At this hybrid event, you can join from anywhere in the world, or shake hands with each other in Las Vegas, right after the Prosper Show!


Empowery was the first to host a women's conference in eCommerce, and we even met with some resistance when we initially announced our intentions. But our inaugural event showed that there are more than enough qualified women to be on stages everywhere and we'll showing that year after year.


Our first event not only highlighted successful women, but had actionable material that men and women alike could take away and apply to their businesses immediately. Plus, we're reducing your costs and taking the risk out of attending by scheduling our event back-to-back with Prosper to get more bang for your buck! 


This year, we're introducing workshops to the Empowery Women's Conference. Day 2 will be packed full of workshops that help you focus your attention on your business and get work done NOW, so you're not just adding more to your "to-do" list with all the amazing things you learn.
