Internet Retailing Expo postponed

By Chris Dawson March 16, 2020 - 11:31 am

News just out has seen Internet Retailing Expo postponed, along with it’s sister show eDelivery Expo, and the biggest event in the UK ecommerce calendar will now take place later in the year.

This is by no means the first ecommerce event to be postponed or cancelled and it is unlikely to be the last due to the increasing level of uncertainty and international travel bans. If you have already booked hotels or travel for Internet Retailing Expo or any other events, it’s time to check out the cancellation policy for your travel and accommodation and determine if you can get a refund.

It is likely this year that many events will go online in webcast or webinar format but certainly for the next few months it’s unlikely that many events will go ahead. Italy is already on a country wide lock down with France and Spain both looking likely to follow suit. Even more countries including Germany have closed their borders to all but essential travel effectively putting a pause on the EU freedom of movement until the Coronavirus outbreak is under control.

We will let you know as soon as a new date for Internet Retailing Expo is announced.

Internet Retailing Expo postponed

“After consultation with stakeholders over the last few days, we have made the difficult decision to postpone IRX/eDX.
Despite strong support from our stakeholders the increasing level of uncertainty, travel bans and individual concerns due to coronavirus mean that we would not be able to deliver the show that you would want to see.
We know that IRX is a critical event in many participant’s calendars, providing the information, inspiration and contacts that they rely on to thrive and survive. As such we will be rescheduling the event for later this year. We look forward to announcing new dates when we’ll bring you a great programme of speakers, exhibitors, features, workshops and networking.
New dates to follow shortly
In the meantime, our thoughts are with those who are directly affected by coronavirus.”
