Online Merchant Must Attend Conference to Grow Your Business: Internet Retailer Comes to Chicago!
Many of you in the eTaildTail community have asked me:
"What are the best conferences to go to that are cost-effective in relation to what you can learn and who you can meet to grow your online business and your business using m-commerce (mobile devices)?"
There are many conferences out there and I have found that Internet Retailer has done the best job to date bringing the most vendors, online retailers (and you are treated really well and have many opportunities to speak to other online retailers privately without vendors), and speakers of all types together.
It is in Chicago this year and I will be there. I also at eBay Live! the following two weeks, which is also an excellent conference, but with a focus on eBay.
If you want to meet just stop by the MerchantAdvantage booth and I would be glad to catch up.
You should consider making this trip, I believe it is worth the investment, and you will get a lot of information and meet plenty of people!

Summary from Internet Retailer: Only 12 Days Left for IRCE 2008 Early Bird Discounts
"With 126 speakers—all leaders in online retailing—and 75 sessions covering every vital e-retailing topic, the Internet Retailer 2008 Conference & Exhibition at Chicago’s brand new McCormick Place West on June 9-12 is a remarkable value even at its standard registration rates. But for the next 12 days—and the next 12 days only—the IRCE 2008 early bird rates are still in effect—providing savings of $100 on each conference registration. And by registering three or more employees of the same company, all registrants receive the $100 early bird discount PLUS the 25% group registration discount.
Internet Retailer 2008 Conference & Exhibition is a content-rich conference with speakers and attendees from every corner of e-retailing—retail chains, catalog firms, web-only merchants, direct-TV marketers, and consumer manufacturers and service companies. No other e-retailing event offers such rich content or so many opportunities to network and exchange ideas with such a range of web merchants. Each year, e-retailers attending IRCE tell us they learn practical information that vastly improves the performance and profitability of their web retailing businesses (see Testimonials). And because the conference agenda is developed by the editors of Internet Retailer—the leading publication in web retailing—you can be sure it contains comprehensive information on the very latest innovations in online retailing and knowledgeable speakers who are chosen solely because of their e-retailing expertise and not because of their affiliation with a conference sponsor. No matter which sessions you attend, you’ll return home with ideas that are worth many times the price of registration."
