Don’t Miss the Retail Networking Event of the Year

There’s no better place than the Exhibit Hall at IRCE to network with old and new friends, and have some fun and food while you are at it!


2016 featured areas will include the IRCE Link Lounge where you can meet with fellow attendees and exhibitors by connecting via the IRCE app. This year’s Backyard is a great way to unwind and play some old-school games, such as giant jenga, and grab a drink. And new lounges throughout the floor make the IRCE exhibit hall the epicenter of networking and fun!


Where Online Retailers Can Recharge, Refresh and Relax

Need to recharge or relax while roaming through all the new available retail technology? Try a visit the massage station, grab a water bottle to fill at the Refresh lounge or plug your phone into one of the charging locations throughout the hall or Recharge lounge. Looking for a pick-me-up? The coffee station will provide you with the jolt of caffeine needed to get you through the rest of the day.


Plus, the “Win the Wheels” tour and drawing will be back for 2016! Internet Retailer’s “Win the Wheels” raffle, made possible by advertisers of Internet Retailer magazine, will offer one lucky winner the keys to a brand new luxury vehicle. Last year, the winner drove away with a shiny new 2015 Mercedes Benz CLA 250r. The tour and drawing will take place on Thursday, June 9.
