One of the biggest eCommerce and retail conferences is fast approaching—if you're going to be in Chicago for the big week, don't forget this handy checklist!
Don’t Forget To Grab Your Conference Guide
IRCE’s comprehensive PDF guide to the entire conference is out and ready for download. With a briefing on every speaker, workshop, and roundtable, it’s essential for planning your time at the conference.
Complete The JumpStart Survey
Feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the offerings at IRCE? Optimize your time by filling out a short survey before the conference—you’ll receive a guide tailored to your interests, that highlights the sessions and exhibitors relevant to you and your business. It even offers key questions to ask providers and a checklist of best practices.
Plan Out Your Custom Tracks
IRCE’s agenda is organized into tracks, allowing you to stick to a consistent theme throughout the conference, or mix and match sessions to create your own personalized experience. Either way, be sure to plan out your schedule and register in the IRCE Connect portal.
Polish Your Elevator Pitch
With thousands of attendees filling up one of the largest conference centers in the world, you’re going to find yourself meeting a ton of people, and having the same conversation over and over: an explanation of who you are and what you do. Be sure you’ve got a polished version of your story in under thirty seconds, so you can get down to business!
Register For Matchmaking
Got a specific service or product you’ll be shopping for at IRCE? Cut down on your hunting time by registering for the matchmaking service. Conference representatives will reach out and hook you up with what you need to know and the exhibitors you’ll want to talk to.
Download The IRCE 2018 Mobile App
Save some trees and some luggage space by downloading the IRCE mobile app, available in the Play store and App Store. With a floor map, list of exhibitors, events schedule, and more, it’s the easiest way to stay organized during the four-day conference.
Set Aside Some Free Time
Between the sessions, keynote speakers, and networking events (there’s both a welcome reception and a cocktail hour), your schedule is going to be packed. Be sure to allocate some time in your schedule to unwind, relax, and take a breather.
Stop By Our Booth For A Snack!
And what better way to relax than a comfy couch and quick snack? Codal will be at IRCE, handing out some goodies and treats. Come swing by and say hey!
