Description

Welcome to the Amazon Academy Manchester 2019

Following the success of the Amazon Academy events throughout the UK over the past 3 years, the Amazon Academy is back and this year for the first time ever attendees will have the chance to go behind the scenes at Amazon as the event is hosted in the Amazon fulfilment center.

As a small business owner (or someone thinking of starting your own business), you will learn how to use the power of the internet and technology to grow your company, boost productivity and export sales and improve the customer experience. SMEs ranging from e-commerce businesses, web developers and new startups will be in attendance to hear from a range of speakers who will provide ‘how to’ advice and insights, as well as discussing some of the broader issues facing businesses today.

What happens on the day?

In the morning, you'll be able to find out how you can make the most of the digital opportunity as a small business, with insight from Amazon, Enterprise Nation and other independent experts and successful entrepreneurs.

Ever wondered how Amazon delivers for its customers? In the afternoon you'll have the chance to tour behind the scenes of Amazon Manchester's fulfilment centre and see what happens when you click ‘buy’ on Amazon.co.uk.

You'll also enjoy a networking lunch with fellow entrepreneurs and experts.
