Communications is at the heart of e-commerce and community.

Magento pays much attention to its customers and the entire community. In their turn, true Magento enthusiasts and fans do their best to spread the word about the platform everywhere they feel it can be useful and positively received by online merchants, web agencies, developers, etc.
The Italian ecommerce market is one of those priority locations for Magento, which has a solid commercial background and developed culture of purchasing products online. These two reasons and the passion of Meet Magento made the first edition of Meet Magento Italy a great success and real breakthrough.
Thomas Fleck at Meet Magento Italy 2014: Italy is a very important market for Magento. We see the growth (of the market) in all areas. And when I come here and see the full room of people waiting for the latest news from Mageno, it proves me right that Italy is a very important market”. Image source: it.meet-magento.com
