What is a Barcamp?
"Orange Klik Barcamp with Dragonflip" takes place on June 10th (Friday).
A barcamp is an event where the content is generated by attendees. Based on what topics you as an Amazon seller want to learn about, we will organize multiple breakout rooms throughout the day.
The topics will be chosen and decided by the participants (including you!) during the first hour of the event.
Rather than following a predetermined schedule that might not work for everyone, we will invite you, experienced sellers and experts, to share your expertise and insights, as well as to get advice on your current challenges.
Does this type of event work for Amazon sellers?
Definitely! Seller Barcamps are very popular among the Amazon sellers community in Germany (check their website at www.sellerbarcamp.com).
Orange Klik is partnering with one of the German Seller Barcamp co-founders, Dragonflip. And for the first time, we are offering a Barcamp event to the international English-speaking community of Amazon sellers.

Planing of the Barcamp Sessions
During the planning session of the event (at 9:00 am) you and other attendees will have an opportunity to pitch your own session on any topic.
The pitch (maximum 1 min) can be an offer to share your own experience, insights, discoveries or just a wish to brainstorm on a specific challenge you are facing right now. It can also be a slide deck, which you prepared before the event and you will be projecting it on the screen to other attendees interested in the topic. Sometimes the issue you want to address might be very complex. Still, you have a a chance to find those handful of sellers with the same challenge and discuss that for 45 minutes in a small intimate group.
We also expect known Amazon experts (influencers) to attend and offer to share their expertise in a free form or a ready to present slide deck.
Each pitch of at most 1 minute long will be followed by the voting round from the audience. This will show us how many people are interested in the topic and according to that different size break-out rooms will be assigned. More votes mean the session will take place in a bigger break-out room.
After voting ends, we will create a board with the full schedule of the Barcamp Day.
Each session lasts for 45 minutes, followed by a 15-minute break. Each hour there will be parallel sessions happening in 4-5 break-out rooms. Throughout the day you can expect about 5-6 one hour blocks dedicated to the sessions in multiple break-out rooms.
The Barcamp concept will let you decide on what you want to learn about, which will always correspond to the topics that matter to you the most in the current state of your Amazon business journey.
Who the Barcamp is designed for?
For Amazon FBA private label sellers
If you are an experienced Amazon FBA seller you'll be able to make the best out of this event. Moreover, there will be lots of opportunities to network with hundreds of other Amazon sellers from different countries and cultures and make new friends and connections to grow your Amazon business.
As an experienced seller, you will get a chance not only to learn the most recent industry strategies and valuable insights from other sessions initiated by the participants but also to get an opportunity to share your experience and tips with other attendees.
If you are just starting out - you will love this event as you will have lots of opportunities to talk to other advanced sellers and learn about their strategies first hand.
For Amazon service providers and agencies
Different service providers specialize in specific areas useful for the seller community. During the Orange Klik Barcamp, Amazon experts will have an opportunity to offer their presentations and mastermind-type sessions addressing the topics that are relevant to you.
Why the Networking day?
On June 9th (Thursday), 1 day before the Barcamp event, you will get a chance to spend the whole day with other sellers and Amazon experts.
During any physical event, the biggest learnings and exchange of Amazon business secrets happen during the informal activities.
That's why we offer you to spend the whole day full of experiences with the group of sellers and Amazon experts. It's an excellent opportunity to make friends before the main Barcamp event on June 10th (Friday) and strengthen the bond with fellow Amazon entrepreneurs.
What is planned during the Networking Day?
The Networking Day starts at 9 am and ends at 5 pm. You will experience 3 core parts during this day:
- MORNING. You will take part in the boat trip with a nice scenery of Lisbon. Lots of opportunities to network and get to know each other.
- LUNCH. We will have lunch at a traditional Portuguese cuisine restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere to rest, chat with your new fellows and enjoy traditional local meals (special dietary requirements can be addressed).
- AFTERNOON. We will visit one of the Lisbon's escape rooms where we will have to solve puzzles as a group. That will bond us together even stronger.
- EVENING. If you hold "Amazon Sellers" ticket you will be invited to attend the VIP Dinner on Thursday (June 9th) at 19:00.
Who is attending?
Due to the nature of the Barcamp concept, there are no pre-defined speakers. Everyone at the event will be able to pitch their topic, presentation or a theme for the discussion. In other words, anyone can be a "speaker" during the Barcamp day.
Even though we don't have official speaker list, among the attendees you will have a chance to meet these familiar experts and thought leaders of the industry:
