Teapot are over in Paris today for the ecommerce extravaganza – PrestaShop Day. The French ecommerce giant are once again hosting a day of workshops, presentations and seminars for delegates from across France and beyond. With an opening speech from Bruno Leveque, the PrestaShop co-founder and a strong line up of other speakers it should be a fascinating day.

ThinkstockPhotos-476679786Today’s venue is the historic Carreau du Temple, a converted early 19th century covered market, situated a mile or so to the north of the River Seine and Notre Dame Cathedral. Web agencies, e-merchants, fellow PrestaShop partners, leading figures will all be gathering under the magnificent glass and steel roof for the day.

Nick C, our ecommerce whizz, is super excited to be there but what would a trip to Paris be without Barry and I to keep him company? Well, exactly… so we are here too. I’ve been looking forward to finding out more about the best ways to optimise PrestaShop sites for better conversion rates and Barry is keen to learn about the design side.

The opportunity to attend an event like this in Paris of all places is quite a treat and unquestionably one of the occasional perks of working in our industry. Last year I made it over to Seattle for MozCon and prior to that Manchester, London and sunny Brighton but never Paris until today.

But what would a trip like this be without a bit of sight seeing though? Thankfully, as we’re not going to be in a soulless conference centre out on the Paris ring road but right in the heart of the city, soaking up a bit of culture and history, seeing some of the cities many treasures and perhaps polishing off one or two cold beers might ‘just’ be possible…

Since becoming the first UK based official PrestaShop partner last year, the ecommerce side of Teapot has grown significantly. We now have a long list of successful Teapot built ecommerce sites for UK and international clients. If you’d like to learn more about some of these websites then take a look at our web design portfolio.

Nick C is our man in the know when it comes to everything ecommerce. Please get in touch to discover more about the range of services we offer and if you fancy it, arrange to come in for a cup of tea and a chat here in the Teapot studio.
