Members of the Volusion team made their mark at the Annual Austin Women’s Conference, where we had a chance to network and show what we’re made of. Check out this post to see what we learned.
On Wednesday, the Volusion team joined over 1,500 women business leaders, entrepreneurs and inspirational speakers to exhibit at the annual Austin Women’s Conference. The show got an early start with tons of people eager to share their business ideas with us. The conference had a distinct Austin feel, packed with an eclectic mix of local retailers, including jewelry and women’s health vendors, and even a full lounge with performances from local women musicians.
The event was a success, with many attendees stopping by our booth to learn more about ecommerce and check out our “I wear the pants, and sell them too!” t-shirts. We had a blast hearing about new business ideas and demonstrating our ecommerce software.
We also had the chance to attend several speaker sessions led by successful women from around the world. It was great to hear their motivational stories and struggles, and absorb their advice for starting a new business. In addition, there were keynote speakers, including stylist and television star, Carson Kressley, who offered hilarious, yet informative fashion advice for professional women of all career backgrounds. Carson was true to humor with his tips – here’s one of our favorites below:

All in all, the Women’s Conference Austin was a great time and we are looking forward to next year’s show!
