Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition – See you in Boston!

June 15, 2009

I’m off to IRCE today in Boston to participate in the annual 5000+ strong meeting of larger and smal internet retailers.  I’ll be hanging out at the ChannelAdvisor booth – 749 and checking out most of the content.  I should have some time to do a little live blogging and as always will be on the lookout for trends and news interesting to eBay sellers.

Stephanie Tilenius, GM, eBay (pictured above), is speaking on ‘how all retailers can take advantage of eBay’ – so I suspect it will be a pitch to the larger retailrs to come on the platform in the Diamond program. I’ll definitely have some coverage of that.
IRCE is the new eBay Live?
Speaking of eBay sellers, over the last 3 years it has been interesting to watch the attendence at eBay Live decline and then the corresponding attendence at IRCE rise.  As the trend towards multi-channel has exploded, more and more ‘eBay sellers’ are becoming ‘internet retailers’ and opening up to the broader topics of ecommerce.  This year without an eBay Live, it will be interesting to see if there’s a huge spike in that activity.
Let’s meet!
If you want to connect while at the show – stop by the booth, shoot me an email or tweet me.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone, hearing what’s new in ecommerce, and helping more retailers grow their business with ChannelAdvisor’s software.
At the booth mention you are an eBay Strategies blog reader and we’ll get you a free smoothie!
