You’re invited to the biggest eBay seller event of the year! eBay Open will be held July 24-26 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas—and if you register before May 1, you can snag early-bird tickets at a discounted rate of $275.


Grow your sales and expand your business.


eBay Open is all about you—and how you can be more successful on eBay.


Learn from top sellers and hear their winning strategies for building and growing a successful business. Find out where the company is headed and learn how to take your business to the next level. Attend workshops, panels, and meet-ups to get tips, tools, and tricks from expert sellers and eBay staff, and meet with eBay’s Customer Service experts for a review of your business and personalized advice.


Whether you’re new to eBay or have been selling for years, you’ll leave with new skills and tools you can put to use back at home.


Get inspired and connect with the eBay community.


At eBay Open, you’ll be surrounded by sellers from across the country—and even around the globe—along with eBay team members eager to meet you. You’ll get to know eBay staff and your fellow attendees at networking opportunities before, during, and after the conference. Make lasting friendships as you learn from other sellers in both structured meetups and casual breaks, and dine and dance at an epic party on the Vegas Strip.


Don’t miss the best eBay Open yet!  


96% of sellers who have attended eBay Open have said that they left with a better understanding of managing their business, and 96% said they’d recommend the event to other sellers.


And, this year promises to be even bigger and better than ever.


We’ll be in a larger venue, which means more networking spaces, more capacity at workshops, and more sellers to learn from and grow your community.


This year, there will also be a bigger, better interactive innovation space where you can check out the latest products and tools we’re working on, test them out for yourself, and provide your feedback.


We’ve got an amazing three days in store for you, packed full of rich content for sellers at all levels, opportunities to meet and learn from eBay staff and your selling peers, and plenty of time for fun.


It’s three epic days designed to help you learn and grow, make meaningful connections, and get inspired and informed. The registration fee includes all educational workshops, networking events, and several meals.  As in previous years, eBay has negotiated a great hotel rate of $89 per night at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The cost for early-bird tickets is $275 for a limited time only (until May 1, 2018). The price rises to $399 after May 1, so register now.


We’re so excited to celebrate you—our amazing community of sellers—and we hope to see you in Las Vegas!  





Thanks for the reminder for early bird tickets. 


What workshops are coming this year? Do we have a line-up for speakers? I am the guy in the plaid in the third picture and had a great time last year. Looking forward to attending this year!

Already booked the mBay for the eBay! See you there 

Is it also $275 for a spouse who will not attend any of the ebay functions but will be doing other things around town while I do the ebay functions


Is there going to be a shuttle provided to and from the airport to the hotel?  And does that rate include spouse/guest?

Hope to make it this year. Thanks!


Cool! I live 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. Count me in! On behalf of Clark County, Nevada I'd like to personally welcome all Ebay sellers to Las Vegas. If anyone has any Las Vegas questions or wants sightseeing tips post them here and I'll help you guys out. Chris 


Does anyone know the approximate hours of the show, specifically the first and last day?  Trying to figure out fight times/days.


Why is no one from the event answering our questions?

@jeffgordon4cure Speakers and workshops will be announced in the next few weeks, so please stay tuned! 


@qualitylumber The full schedule will be announced soon, but the event will take place over three full days (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) so you may want to plan to arrive Monday evening and depart Friday morning to make sure you don't miss any of the great sessions and networking. 


@nc-daydreamer @automotivepartsrecyclrs The registration rate is per person. If your spouse plans to attend any of the eBay Open events, they need to be a registered attendee.

@jeffgordon4cure, here's the agenda: https://ebayopen.com/agenda.html. Workshops and speakers have not been announced yet, but I assure you there will be great workshops, speakers and events. Last year was amazing, including many deep dives into eBay resources, panels with sellers and staff and much more.

@automotivepartsrecyclrs, I think this question was answered on the discussion board for Open, but your wife would need a ticket if she were to attend any of the related workshops or events. If she's along to spend time in Vegas, and doesn't attend any related events she won't need a ticket.

@nc-daydreamer, not sure about airport shuttle info. I'll see what I can find out, but there is a contact email that should be able to answer your question: ebayopen@wearesparks.com.

Hope to see you all there!




Thanks, but I was referring to double occupancy of the room - not the events. Hubby would be happy to find other things to occupy his time - Smiley Happy

@nc-daydreamer The $89 hotel rate is per room, not per person. 



Very helpful!  Thank you!


Some clarification on the room rates for those not familiar with how resorts publish their rates.

Base rate is $89.

Resort fee is $32 and is tacked onto the room rate (not optional).

The county room tax is 13.38% and applies to both room and resort fees.

That means the total contracted rate is about $137 per night.

Still a good deal for the amazing amenities. Smiley Happy



@katie_hammel & doug@ebay Thank you for the info. Attened last year, anxious to learn what new workshops are coming.

I found this - sharing with all ...


Cost: 15-18 bucks per person (plus optional tip)

 Do you have to pay the full stay room rate at the time of registration, I tried to put a deposit for 1st night , system doesn't allow for deposit, is this correct?

by watchcount · Pathfinder

Is there going to be a shuttle provided to and from the airport to the hotel?


Just an FYI: there's a local express bus from the airport to the LV Strip. It's just a few bucks and beats full price taxis, Ubers, & shuttles.

How many nights is the special rate at Madalay good for?
