What to expect

Join us in Salford for a packed agenda of content featuring eBay experts, local entrepreneurs and special guests.

We’d like to think eBay has always been there for its business sellers, so for the first time ever we’re hitting the road and touring across 12 different cities in the UK with our brand new eBay Business Roadshow. Next up, Salford!

Across two half days – Thursday afternoon and Friday morning - there will be a whole host of content dedicated to helping you kick-start your new business with eBay. For those who’ve already started, let us help you scale up your business with practical tips and dedicated sessions from our eBay experts. In addition, expect inspiration from local entrepreneurs and special guests, dedicated 1:1 support as well as networking opportunities with other business sellers in your community.
