Due to the continuing uncertainty from the Coronavirus pandemic, Internet Retailing Expo has been cancelled entirely for 2020. The event returns in 2021 on the 17th and 18th of March, but in the mean time an online event IRX Engage launches on the 1st of July.
There will be a number of one-day virtual events taking place over the summer, with IRX Engage Week taking place on 7th to 10th of September 2020.
IRX Engage will cover a range of topics focusing on ecommerce and the ‘new normal’. Each event will cover a topic pertinent to the current climate and will give you the opportunity to chat to retailers, hear from big-name speakers and share solutions… all from the comfort of your desk.
“The way we work and play has to change, and we need to get used to the ‘new normal’ – whatever that might be.”
– IRX Engage
