eBay Live Germany – event wrap up
Well I’ve just returned from eBay Live in Dusseldorf – a two day show dedicated to all things eBay. And of course as the newest member of the eBay family, Skype was present for the first time. We had a stand in the exhibition hall, which looked something like this.
Several of our hardware partners were represented on the stand and there was plenty of interest from attendees in some of the cool new devices not yet seen in Europe such as the Ipevo speaker phone, the [Polycom Communicator]( http://accessories.skype.com/item?SID=a9d0de66ccaa4d6b17745bfb2d7871c20db:4580&sku=C100S), the [Netgear Wifi phone](http://accessories.skype.com/item?SID=a9d0de66ccaa4d6b17745bfb2d7871c20db:4580&sku=SPH101) and the Sony Vaio mouse phone which attracted plenty of attention. Thanks to all our hardware partners for providing this equipment which helped us once again demonstrate the breadth of the Skype eco-system and some of the opportunities that exist for powersellers to start selling Skype certified hardware on eBay.
On the stand we were demoing the latest version of Skype, and introducing powersellers to the benefits of the product. Many eBay sellers are already starting to include Skype Me buttons on their eBay homepages and integrating it in to the way they communicate with their customers.
With the tradeshow running from 8am to 7pm, it was a very tiring experience, but a successful show was had by all. We now move on to Las Vegas for [eBay Live US]( http://pages.ebay.com/ebaylive/) on June 13-15.
