Large & Small Retailer Events at IRCE 2017

The exhibit hall at IRCE serves as the epicenter of entertainment, networking and fun at IRCE. Not only do our exhibitors – e-commerce leaders themselves – offer you the latest in industry solutions and top technologies, but they also offer fun events during the course of the show. Events include in-booth demos, raffles, snacks and treats.


Exhibitors throw many events after-hours held throughout the city of Chicago, in some of the top restaurants, bars, and event spaces around. Parties last year included events at jazz clubs, and top destinations such as Acadia, Rockit Bar and Grill, Gilt Bar, the rooftop at the Godfrey Hotel, Public House, J. Parker rooftop, ROOF on theWit and many others.
