A Recap of IRCE @ RetailX: Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition

The B2BGateway team recently sponsored and attended the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition held at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. IRCE attendees included companies across all industries that sell their goods online, and B2BGateway was exhibiting among the 600 top eCommerce solution and technology vendors.

The conference allowed the retailers to meet with potential solution providers, including advertising optimization, logistics & fulfillment, and point-of-sale fixtures, while also providing the opportunity to network and share best practices with fellow sellers.

B2BGateway was represented by Chad Hoyle and Lauren Hawkins, on hand to answer any questions, offer guidance, and to suggest potential automation solutions to the logistics companies in attendance.

As exhibitors at an exposition-style show with thousands of attendees, most of our time was spent providing information to booth attendees. We were able to speak with several retailers that would benefit from a data automation solution, while also solidifying relationships with existing clients we currently support.

Night one welcomed all attendees and exhibitors to a networking cocktail event on the expo floor, while night two saw many make the trip uptown for a Cubs game at Wrigley Field.  Overall, we were able to come away from the show with a better understanding of attendee needs and traction points, while increasing our visibility and credibility within the industry.

B2BGateway is committed to providing the best possible EDI & API connectivity solutions to our Internet Retail partners, and we’re looking forward to attending next year’s conference being held again in Chicago.
