Will I be Seeing You at Internet Retailing Expo 2013 This Week?

It’s IRX time again, yay!

Held at the NEC in Birmingham, it’s one of my favourite events of the year, not because of the presentations held or even that the coffee is mildly decent, but purely as a networking event. Last year I spent more time out of the main hall than I did in it and I fully intend do the same this year.

If you’ve not heard of the conference before, then it’s a free to register & attend event (you can register here for free). With the exception of the ChannelAdvisor Catalyst event and out of the public conferences that I visited over the past few years, it was by-far the better one of them all for when it comes to meeting peers.

I won’t be in such a vibrant colour as last year, toning it down to purple instead and I’m really looking forward to seeing you there, pop over & say “hi” or “hola” or “howdy” I’d love to meet you :)

Will I be Seeing You at Internet Retailing Expo 2012 Next Week?

I’m excited about next week, I’ve blocked out two days in my calendar and the train is booked for IRX 2012!

What I would say is that I’m expecting the first day to be a little manic and I’ll be hitting the Cafe area around 12:00. On the second which should be a little more relaxed, I’ll be loitering there again and feel free to come over and have a chat. You won’t miss me and I’ll be standing out in orange.

If you would like to some quality one-on-one time, the second day is going to be better for myself (that’s the Thursday) and we’ll see if together we can make your multi-channel business rock! Bribery works wonders and I prefer my coffee black ;)

If you’ve not heard of the conference before, then it’s a free to register & attend event and out of the public conferences that I visited last year, it was by far the better one of them all. I added an article a few days ago for the event and you can read it here (and also see what I look like too). There is a whole host of workshops and presentations for both days the full list is here.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you there, pop over & say “hi” or “hola” or “howdy” I’d love to meet you :)

Meet Me for Coffee at the Internet Retailing Conference

It’s IRX time again and I’m soo looking forward to attending. Out of the 4 or so ‘public’ conference that I visited last year, IRX in March was by far the best!

The Internet Retailing conference has the largest line-up of exhibitors I know of in the UK, Amazon, ChannelAdvisor, eSellerPro, iContact, PayPal, Reevoo, SellerExpress and a whole host of others will be attending in person. While there is no stand for eBay specifically, you can be sure the select members of their team will be attending. You can see the full line up here and registration is FREE.Internet Retailing Expo 2012

I’m really looking forward to seeing how the team from My1stWish do, as they’re presenting with eSellerPro at 11:30 and I can’t wait to meet Dave Chaffey CEO of SmartInsights after his presentation at 12:00 on day 1. A full agenda for both days is here.

 

Agent Orange

This year I am taking up roots in the Cafe area again and just so you’ll not miss me I’ll be wearing “orange”.

I’ve included a cheesy shot below so you know who to look for. I’ll be sporting a solar panel, a goatee of some form, a smile and as someone kindly pointed out last year a hoody that makes me look like a Guantanamo Bay inmate.

Meet Me For Coffee!

Meet Me For Coffee!

I am attending both days and are staying overnight (thanks to the team at CargoBox). If you would like to meet me, just pop over and say “Hi”, I’d love to meet you face to face.

It appears it’s the same conference hall (3a) as it was last year at the NEC in Birmingham and there is a Cafe area in the middle. I’ll be sat in the middle of it, you’re not going to be able to miss me :)
