It was the first Magento Meet Up in Singapore, but definitely not BSSCommerce’s first. In fact, we have been the frequent participant in Meet Magento events for several years and even played as the Silver Sponsor for Meet Magento Indonesia 2017. What made this year Meet Magento special was that BSSCommerce realized a rapid rise in Magento Asia-Pacific community.

Happily, we not only met new merchants, developers, solution providers worldwide but also had the real-life communications with our past customers from Singapore, Indonesia, and India who had already satisfied with our services. Their positive comments are really big motivations for BSSCommerce team to keep up our hard work!
