Two weeks from today marks the start of the 9th annual Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibit (IRCE) in Chicago. We’ll be there at booth #108, among the 200 speakers and 9,500 executives related to e-retail.
Topics range from creating a global presence using e-commerce, to e-marketing tips to boost traction on search, to focusing on B2B sales and marketing. Social commerce, e-commerce technologies, and online payment processes will also be hot button topics throughout the exhibit. Here’s just a few of the 220 speakers that will be presenting at the IRCE:
Mindy Grossman is the CEO of HSN Inc. Her keynote address, How Boundaryless Retail Drives 21st Century Success, will be at June 6th, 8:30-9:00am. She’ll be explaining her philosophy of ‘Boundaryless Retail’ that has grown HSN into one of the top internet retailers in the country. Boundaryless retail is a culture that entangles commerce with engaging content and a social community that keeps consumers interacting with a company.
Al Gore will be giving his address, The Global View: The Internet, Business, and The Worldwide Opportunity, on June 5th, 9:45-10:15am. He’ll be giving insight into how the internet’s ubiquitous nature can help companies compete on a global level. Being on the board of directors of Apple, as well as a senior strategic advisor to Google, this is an incredible chance to hear one of the leading experts talk about what the future of online business can be.
Each day will have 5 different tracks to follow, with a total of 120 sessions. Squeezing all these speakers and sessions into a three day conference means you’ll never have time to see it all, so be sure to keep an eye on the blog throughout the conference.
