Talking marketplaces at #IRX18 in Birmingham next month
The Internet Retailing Expo, #IRX18, is one of the crucial dates in the calendar for marketplaces merchants every year. For Tamebay it represents something of an annual pilgrimage to the Birmingham NEC, and you are guaranteed a very good walk through the gargantuan facility (between Subway and Wetherspoon’s for food) alongside elucidation and inspiration from the speakers and stall holders. It’s a must attend event.
We must have been heading along to IRX for ten years and it is always a valuable use of our time. So book your free place for the event on the 21st and 22nd March 2018 and get involved. Register at this page here.
And don’t forget about the social aspect. There is a retailers’ shindig on the 21st March that is always a hoot with free flowing booze and plenty of grub. You can find out more here and also sign up. Don’t forget to bring your glad rags.
But the event is all about way more than partying. The focus is on educational and informative content that you can absorb and utilise as a vehicle to develop an ecommerce enterprise. And, of particular interest to Tamebay readers, will be the Marketplaces stream. As they say:
This track looks at two key growth areas for eCommerce; marketplaces and B2B. The marketplaces session in the morning focuses on helping you understand how to drive and sustain real international growth through a successful marketplace strategy and how you can expand through creating your own marketplace.
Needless to say, everyone at Tamebay looks forward to meting up with many of you at #IRX18 and having a chinwag. We will have stall, so stop on by. And we will also cheerfully attend the drinks on the 21st too, so you’ll be able to collar us over a glass (ahem) of beer. See the link above.
How free is the “free flowing booze”?
Not sure we will be staying over but will be attending on one of the days.
