logo_aribalive2013b.pngAs the Networked Economy evolves, it’s getting harder for sellers to stay on top of the best ways to find new customers and meet demands for faster, more convenient service. Think about how your own company uses the Ariba Network, for example. Are you making the most of it to grow and differentiate your business? If not, you’re not alone. But the good news is, with the right knowledge and guidance, you can. And as thousands of sellers can attest, you can reap rapid returns on your investment.


To help sellers like you jump-start deeper engagement with Ariba’s buyer customers, we’re offering a special bundle: Sign up for the Advantage Plus package for Ariba Discovery – our business matchmaking service that helps sellers find leads among thousands of large companies on the Ariba Network – and you’ll receive a ticket to Ariba LIVE, our biggest customer conference of the year. Choose from two dates: May 6-8, in Washington, D.C or June 3-5 in Berlin, Germany.


With this ticket, valued full price at up to $1,399, you’ll join thousands of companies coming to learn how to tap into the power of the Networked Economy. Attend breakout sessions and keynote presentations on topics geared to your needs, and network with thousands of decision makers at companies seeking new sources of products and services. And by participating in Ariba Discovery, you can access leads in more than 20,000 categories representing billions of dollars in new business opportunities every year from buying organizations around the world. Buyers describe their needs in a posting, and we’ll automatically match you to relevant postings for the categories you serve. And by participating in Ariba Discovery at the Advantage Plus seller level, you’ll maximize the value of Ariba Discovery for your business by getting:


  • Unlimited free responses to buyer RFI and RFP postings
  • Unlimited ProfilePitches (coming with AD10*) and messages to buyers
  • Customized consulting support to optimize your profile
  • Priority customer service and expert advice to increase your success rate


With the ticket valued up to $1,399 and the Advantage Plus package priced at $1,999, it’s just an incremental $600 to get both. So now is a great time to sign up for Advantage Plus. You get all the benefits of being an Advantage Plus seller – including the ability to maximize visibility with buyers – and avoid the higher cost of purchasing both the package and ticket separately.
