IRC (InternetRetailing Conference)

Reconnect with your customer


Reconnect with your customer

Help shape the future of retail

Today’s retailers are working hard to deliver exceptional experiences to their customers, create loyalty around their brand and find new ways to expand their sales. With so much disruption and challenges to existing channels and markets, it’s crucial that they embrace new and innovative solutions to get the edge over their competitors. Those prepared to innovate and to think more about their customers will reap significant rewards.

One place, one day

IRC 2020 will provide the ideal forum to bring together retail leaders, thought-leaders, disruptors and those driving digital innovation in one place on one day. 

It’s more than just a conference; it’s a chance for deeper conversation, to hear what’s working for retailers, to learn about new trends, to share ideas and most importantly, to position your solution in an environment where retailers are actively looking for both inspiration and solutions to their problems.

Get involved!

Participate in the conference programme

IRC is designed to make sure that delegates are fully involved in discussion and ideas sharing. There are
numerous ways you can get involved, from headline sponsor to panel sponsor – you’ll just need to find a top retail client willing to showcase your technology and the crowds will come!

Host a 1-2-1 meeting

Meet face-to-face with engaged, prequalified
decision-makers in pre-arranged meetings. We will work with you to discover the types of retailers you wish to
meet and create a schedule of 4-6 meetings across the day.

Take display space

Host meetings and ensure that your brand is on view at the leading eCommerce conference. Display spaces are fully delivered by us meaning that you don’t have to worry about organising your stand.

Present a workshop

Showcase how you have led, delivered or assisted significant projects for globally-renowned retailers, brands and services in a hands-on, practical, training focused session on the expo floor. This is strictly no sales pitches – instead an opportunity to provide insight and training in your area of expertise.

Join an impressive line-up of speakers

What others had to say
