The lunch break worked out as the icebreaker of the business atmosphere. Then, the event unfolded its entire potential, allowing a new group of top-notch experts to come to the stage. The panel discussions varied greatly, so everybody managed to express the opinion on the matter.
We do not want to claim some topics to be better or more interesting as it always depends on the information the visitors come for. But “Why the performance of the web matters” presented by one of the online-business expert – Shu Hirasaka incited a truly sparkling conversation.
And, of course, how come without coffee. During a break, many wanted to have at least a quick talk with the colleagues, speakers and event guests to use the power of networking to the full extent. Having the brain recharged, people jumped right into the final part of Meet Magento Japan 2019.
The presentation “An introduction to psychology that can be useful for selling EC sites” by Momoko Asaka, CEO of Veriteworks has definitely struck the audience. It brought up a deep topic that captured the attention of all the participants. Some other noticeable sessions were carried out by e-commerce experts like Yuta Matsumoto with his report “European Magento community participation”.
There were many other capturing presentations, and there is no surprise, that time went so fast that it seemed like visiting only a swift seminar comprising so much valuable information that should be stored in every mind.
Traditionally, as it goes with almost all Meet Magento events, the final session was covered by Ben Marks, the famous Adobe’s Magento Evangelist. He demonstrated the future capabilities of Magento disseminating a stirring wave of inspiration behind.
