All Web makes New Friends at IRCE 2019
This year I had an amazing opportunity to attend & participate at IRCE Chicago in June. Now I know what you’re probably thinking, that this is old news. Yes, you are correct. I have been extremely busy; plus, I think this is still worth writing. So better late than never, right?! 😉
IRCE is the largest show that I go to, and it’s pretty overwhelming if we are being honest. This year I went with Stephanie and we tried to conquer and divide to see the whole show. Yes, it’s that big! Don’t believe me, here is a list of exhibitors this year. It’s packed full of vendors that can help your business with ALL your needs. Everything from product fulfillment, shipping packaging, marketing, website design, products feeds, security, processors… I could go on and on.
I really love to connect with many of these 3rd parties and learn more about their services. We always have clients asking us for suggestions and solutions to solve problems. It’s great having some contacts to help fulfill those needs that our out of our wheelhouse. Because that is what every great developer does, right?! Make referrals to help with their client’s success!
One of my favorite parts of IRCE 2019 was being in the Yahoo Small Business booth as a developer for the platform. We talked to all kinds of merchants, big & small, and listened to some of their successes but also their struggles. It’s so cool to be able to brainstorm and help find creative solutions to make businesses more efficient. Oh yea, the Garrett’s popcorn was pretty amazing too!
If you are an e-commerce retailer, this is a show you don’t want to miss next year. I want to encourage you to mark your calendar presently, in 2020 IRCE is happening from Tuesday, June 9th to Thursday, June 11th, at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, IL. Invest in your company by opening the doors to companies that can help you grow. Hope to see you there!
