IRCE: See you in Chicago
Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition (IRCE) kicks off this Tuesday, June 2 and we’re headed to Chicago for the show. Attracting retail trailblazers across industries, attendance is expected to reach 10,000 this year. As we gear up for another quality event, here are some of the sessions and events we’re most excited about attending: Keynote Address: Retail Revolution: How Digital is Transforming Target and Fueling the Future of Shopping When looking at e-commerce trends to be prepared for, mobile always seems to top the list. In the next three years, mobile commerce is expected to top a whopping $638 billion – the world’s entire e-commerce spent just a year ago. Needless to say we’re looking forward to attending Jason Goldberger’s keynote on mobile, retails apps and all things digital. As president of Target.com and mobile for Target Corp., Goldberger will share his lessons learned along the retailer’s digital transformation journey and where he sees e-commerce heading.
