Orlando, FL - April 16, 2007 – Channel Intelligence (CI) announces the Product Attribute Summit, the latest in the Channel Summit series of interactive industry events offered by CI. The Product Attribute Summit will be held April 26-27, 2007, at the Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando, Florida. It will feature a cross-section of industry experts speaking on various aspects of emerging trends related to the role of product attributes in online sales. Attendees include shopping engines, search engines, retailers, manufacturers and search agencies. Registration is available at http://www.thechannelsummit.com.

“Consumers are demanding more effective ways of finding products, and retailers need more effective tools to reach their target audience. Product attributes are playing a big role in connecting highly qualified buyers with retailers that sell products they want to buy,” explains Steven Roth, VP of Product Management for Channel Intelligence. “Google and Amazon now require that product attributes be added to data feeds from retailers wanting to be listed on their respective sites. Comparison shopping engines aren’t far behind as some, such us MSN Shopping, have added product attributes to their data feed specifications. This event will help marketers understand how they can use product attributes to improve their online performance with both comparison shopping engines and on their own retail sites.”

“The Product Attribute Summit is designed to be an exciting, interactive conference,” said Joy Lee, Senior Marketing Manager at Channel Intelligence. “The event packs into a full day relevant topics ranging from consumer search behavior to sources and management of product attributes and measurement of effectiveness. Attendees will also be able to view technical demonstrations of tools available for product optimization and pose questions to subject matter experts.”

The lineup of speakers at the Product Attribute Summit includes experts from prominent organizations such as Google, Best Buy, Toys "R" Us, Yahoo!, Circuit City, SLI Systems, and CNET Channel.

Cost for the Product Attribute Summit is $495 per person. Space is almost sold out and registration by April 18, 2007 is strongly encouraged. More information on the Product Attribute Summit, including the agenda, hotel information, and registration is available at http://www.thechannelsummit.com.
