On the heels of NRF, the BigCommerce team headed west to make its stake at eTail West 2022 in Palm Springs, California.

With in-person events ramping back up, this year’s sold-out eTail West conference at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa brought a retreat-like escape for attendees eager to soak up plenty of sunshine — and ecommerce strategies.

The ecommerce and omnichannel retail conference was packed full of strategies for charting a post-pandemic growth plan and navigating the next normal. The world’s biggest retailers came together to get actionable takeaways from industry experts, plus BigCommerce technology partners including Fast, Klaviyo, Signifyd and more.

On top of strategy-packed sessions, attendees also had a chance to connect with the BigCommerce team face-to face and learn how the BigCommerce platform is powering ecommerce innovation, disruption and transformation for our merchants. 

Here’s a peek into how BigCommerce made a Texas-sized splash at the event:

Keeping Palm Springs Weird with Klevu

BigCommerce teamed up with technology partner Klevu to bring Austin vibes to the California desert. Our “Keep Austin Weird” Block Party was one of the three exclusive city-themed block parties along with New York City and Seattle-inspired events hosted by Recharge and Route.

Attendees were eager to kick up their boots with the BigCommerce and Klevu teams as the guest list boasted nearly double the RSVP count. 

Over 375 attendees experienced a taste of Texas with Austin-inspired sips, food and fun at the Rockwood Grill Patio. From boots to BBQ, no Texas-sized detail was left unturned. 

“Such a great time, the food, music and vibes were amazing!”

BigCommerce’s Booth Brings the Heat

BigCommerce’s booth presence also brought our brand to life for attendees. Our on-site team was thrilled to connect with 70 retailers and partners from across the globe including HEB, Joann’s Fabrics and Organifi.

Thank you to all who attended, and a big thanks to Klevu for their partnership. We enjoyed getting to see so many of you in person, and can’t wait to see you at Shoptalk March 27-30 at Booth 6044. Be sure to stop by and say hello!
