IRCE - Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition - Chicago, June 25-28

Our team – Tamas, Lee and Jim - just got back from the IRCE @ RetailX (Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition) show in Chicago (June 25-28). The picture above is Lee standing in front of our booth beside his caricature image … the caricature only has a thumb and 3 fingers … other than that, can you tell the difference??

There were 600 exhibitors at IRCE so it was a chaotic place. This year, IRCE, GlobalShop and RFID Journal Live! retail events were co-located under the RetailX banner and brought together e-commerce, store design, and innovation.

We made a few changes this year – some small, some not so small. In the small but personally significant category … did you notice the shirts? The guys have historically worn a white shirt and red tie (just like our caricature images). Apart for the ubiquitous ‘don’t like wearing a tie’ concern, they also find the ties with the exhibitor badges around their neck is uncomfortable and awkward. This year, we had custom white shirts made with distinctive red collar, cuffs and button placket and Integral Group embroidered on the front. Tamas, Lee and Jim all looked (and felt) great.

We made some changes to our booth – and got lots of positive feedback about it at the show.

And, last but not least, Captain Marvel joined us at our booth.

We count the show as a success – we talked to many people and got to see some interesting exhibitors. Thanks to everyone that stopped by to talk with us. We’re looking forward to seeing you again next year.

Have a look at all of our pictures here.
