  1. Really eBay? Remember when it was free or nearly free? They wanted sellers to attend. They encouraged people to come and sell on ebay. They put out lavish spreads and had entertainment in appreciation for all the hard work the sellers were doing to build the site. Guess those days are long gone. $400 now to go and have someone teach you how to spend your money. I liken it to going to a trade or retail show where they want the buyers to pay to get in to spend more of their own money all the while charging the vendors ridiculous booth space. America – gt a reality check please.

  2. In ebay’s defense convention space is expensive. Some of it could be offset by vendors. Yes it would be nice if it was free or low cost, but that’s life. I am not sure if I would attend or not.

  3. They should run convention in China that’s where the bulk of their business is coming from. US Ebay sales are dying year after year all due to ebay’s policies and fee hikes.
