Nearly 10,000 retail attendees (manufacturers, wholesalers, brands, third-party sellers, and more) turned out to McCormick Place West in downtown Chicago for IRCE — the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition. From June 6-8, the IRCE exhibit hall was buzzing with interested retailers looking to optimize some facet of their online business, engaging in conversation with over 600 exhibitors.

1. Feedvisor put a new spin on our booth this year, with our very own “Ask the Amazon Experts” station.

Sellers that stopped by our booth could meet with one of our Amazon experts to uncover strategic ways to improve the performance of their store. Feedvisor Account Manager and Amazon expert Andrew Roe said, “It was exciting to meet a large variety of Amazon sellers at our booth and learn more about their businesses and the unique challenges that they’re facing.”

Feedvisor had strong representation at the show, with members of the marketing, sales, product, customer success, and leadership teams in attendance, working the booth, and participating in speaker sessions.

2. Amazon sellers could participate in our spin the wheel game every hour, for a chance to win fun prizes such as Apple watches and Amazon gift cards. During peak hours, the line to spin extended into the aisle!

3. At a conference of IRCE’s scale, the networking opportunities were abundant.

Sellers and brands of all sizes stopped by the Feedvisor booth to learn about our expanded product offering and ask our Amazon experts questions about their store and how to maximize their profitability. We value those discussions immensely and we are so excited to have met so many of you onsite.

All in all, IRCE was a hugely successful event for Feedvisor. The “one-stop shop event for e-retailers” was truly a breeding ground for discussions surrounding e-commerce best practices, tools and software that help you optimize your business approach on Amazon, and process-improvement strategies. We can’t wait to see you again for #IRCE19!
