In September, 1/3rd of RLTSquare’s team attended the Meet Magento Dubai conference scheduled on 3rd and 4th of September. We landed on the 1st of September in Dubai and stayed for 10 days at the beautiful Dubai Marina View which overlooked the beautiful Dubai Water Canal.
On 2nd September, our team toured the city and went to the famous Burj Khalifa. Over there, we went all the way to the 160th floor to witness the beautiful Dubai city from the highest point. The view was breathtaking and we stayed there for the sunset which was equally mesmerizing.
On Sunday, we prepared for the conference and studied the agenda in thorough detail so that we were up to date with the latest happenings in Magento. Then, Monday was the conference day and you can read more about that on Meet Magento Dubai – Day 1.
On the second day of the conference, the agenda was technical in nature with speakers like Henryk talking about omnichannel in the world of Magento where he claimed: “Retailers lose $1.75 trillion due to overstocks, out of stocks and preventable returns” and left the audience with some good insights. Other highlights of the event included a panel discussion on the progressive web apps and the day came to a close with an in-depth technical PHP lecture by Gabriel Somoza (3rd from left).
And of course, how we can forget, the energetic Ben Marks. He was all over the event, hosting the event and sharing his insights on Magento. We have been in direct contact with Ben for over 3 years and it was an honour for us to have him laud our progress as Pakistan’s leading Magento agency.
After a successful event end, we took our time to relax over the next 3-4 days visiting attractions like Wild Wadi Water Park, IMG Park and going to Desert Safari. This was a much-needed vacation after our team had worked tirelessly to meet their deadlines and getting Magento stores live for our valuable clients.
