The Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE) 2014, happening this year between the 10th – 13th of June, promises to be an extraordinary event as it marks its 10th year as the world’s largest ecommerce conference and exhibition. It is being held at McCormick Place West, Chicago, with more 10,000+ attendees expected to attend and over 600 companies exhibiting!
We’re pretty excited to be a part of IRCE this year (our first!) and are looking forward to attending some brilliant sessions, networking with the whos-who of the ecommerce industry and talking to people about problems we solve. Here are a few of the things we’re most looking forward to.
It’ll be interesting to see ecommerce stalwarts like John Donahoe, CEO eBay as well as Niraj Shah from Wayfair, speak about the latest ecommerce innovations, trends, opportunities and more.
I’m personally extremely excited about Jimmy Wales’s session – ‘The Wikipedia Story: The Power of Community in the Online Era—and What it Means for Retailers’ as well as the Small Retailers and E-Marketing tracks.
The second day also has a number of sessions that retailers can learn from. This includes the session on ‘Analyzing a Social Community to Gain Shopper Insights’ by Kevin Ertell & Wade Gerten as part of the social track and the intriguing session on Neuromarketing: Where Science Meets the Visuals of Web Design by Kurtis Morrison and Jered Goodyear.
IRCE has some great networking opportunities for attendees to connect with their peers and learn in a fun, relaxed environment.
Along with the Welcome reception in the exhibit hall, there is the epic IRCE 10th Anniversary Party- island style! Conducted at ‘The House of Blues’ (Marina city Chicago), it’s a perfect ambience for relaxed networking. Should be a fun night!
600+ Companies Exhibiting
The huge exhibit hall at IRCE 2014 has more than 600 companies exhibiting! It brings together online retailers, solution providers and other companies from across the world, making it a super platform for knowledge sharing and great learning experience.
Of course, where there is an exhibit hall, there are freebies – loads of them, in this case. It should be interesting to see what amazing giveaways companies are giving out this year!
