May 16th, May 17th and May 18th, 2019, SEATTLE

The Inaugural 

Empowery eCommerce Co-op

2019 Seattle Summit


We'll Talk Global Selling

We'll focus on selling where it makes sense for YOU. Cross Border Selling is becoming easier and easier for sellers who are prepared and matched with the right resources. No matter where you sell we're talking about how to grow YOUR business.


Limited Tickets

We only have a VERY limited supply of tickets. This is no fake FOMO. The venue is limited, but those lucky enough to get into this event will LOVE it! Be prepared to make lifetime memories. More importantly be prepared to TAKE ACTION!


Expert Speakers

Our speakers are amazingly experienced and cover diverse topics. You will find some great new strategies AND some hot tactics to try. Attendees will also deliver gold nuggets daily during the networking sessions where magic is made.


Delivering Value & Action Steps

Have you ever been to an event that was just one sales pitch after another? That's not how we do things. At the Empowery Seattle Summit you will find informative AND actionable content delivered every single day.

  • 10x Your Investment.

    You have the opportunity over the coming year to take the shared knowledge and more than 10x your investment that you made coming to the conference. Even a single idea could deliver that and more when you go back and implement it!

  • Access without Pressure.

    By being in the room you will have access to powerful ideas, methods, and resources to help you quickly advance your business. You will NOT have pressure to buy something or sign up for something. We don't like that and we wouldn't do that to you.

  • Up Close and Personal.

    Our event is planned to be very inclusive for all attendees. We don't have a VIP room where the speakers go to hide from the guests. We are all together and you can hang out and eat meals and network with everyone during the event. We love to have conversations with entrepreneurs!




The schedule is broken into 3 FULL days.  This will be action packed from early in the day for breakfast well into the evening especially for VIPs. 


Introductory Tickets get access to Day 1 and Day 2 only. No Meals or other frills are included.


General Admission tickets get access to Day 1 and Day 2 only. General Admission (GA) Tickets get breakfast and lunch each day.


VIP tickets will get access to all 3 days including the exclusive MasterMind day which will be an extraordinary experience. VIP tickets get breakfast, lunch, and a very exclusive dinner included each and every day.

Remember that this event is put on by a non-profit cooperative. We want to give overwhelming value to all attendees and manage the event wisely.

Frequently asked question

Here are a few answers to our most common questions

1. Ticket FAQs

  • i. Is my ticket refundable?

    You can request a refund within 5 days of the ticket purchase date, but that refund offer expires 30 days before the event which is April 15th. We want to respect our customers and ticket holders, but we are investing a great deal into the venue and event operations to make this experience something you will absolutely love so we can not offer refunds for any reason outside of this written policy. Request refunds at

  • ii. Can I transfer my ticket?

    If you need to transfer your ticket to someone else you may do so, until 10 days prior to the event, by paying a $100 fee. Request transfers at

2. Travel FAQs

  • i. Which airport should I fly into?

    You can fly into the SEATAC airport (code SEA) and then get transportation to the hotel in Bellevue. Your flights and hotels and transportation are your own responsibility. 

  • ii. What hotel is the event at?

    We will share the event venue with ticket purchases after your purchase. Rest assured that the venue and location is extraordinary and something very special.

3. Billing FAQs

  • i. How do I buy more than one ticket?

    Of course you are very welcome to purchase multiple tickets, you just have to purchase each one individually. We apologize for this inconvenience, however, it is a system limitation in Kartra that we are forced to live with. ;) Please be certain that the ATTENDEE NAME for each purchase is the ticket holder who will have identification when they register. Delays or even non-admittance can happen if we can not identify the proper ticket holder.

  • ii. What company will my credit card company show?

    Your credit card will show the purchase from the Empowery eCommerce Co-op. You may reach out to us using if you have other questions.

4. Support FAQs

  • i. How do I book the hotel?

    Starting around Feb 20th we will send purchasers the hotel venue and other nearby hotels as well. This will allow you to select the best hotel for you. Of course it makes sense to stay in the same hotel as our event if you can for convenience and networking. Remember as someone who purchased tickets you should avoid sharing the location with non-paying guests who want to learn from your investment without attending. They are not awesomer!

  • ii. What's the weather like?

    It is a beautiful time of year in Seattle in the spring. The weather can still be unpredictable so pack appropriately. Our event will be business casual and in general we're not too worried about your attire. (The hotel is more upscale than we are, but we are going to make a big impression so they aren't going to hassle us.) Be prepared for fun!

  • iii. Can I be an affiliate?

    If you would like to learn about becoming an affiliate of Empowery to earn commissions on membership, events, and other empowery related activities please visit this partner page:
