“Internet Retailing Expo 2013 (March 20-21 at the NEC, UK) is going to be bigger and better than ever” / Mark Pigou

by on January 18, 2013

Internet Retailing Expo 2013 - Visitor registrations are up 43% year on year - quite staggering - and a clear indication that the UK's online & multichannel channel retail sector is keener than ever to respond to the challenges in the marketplace.

It was sad to see Jessops join the list of closures on the High St., especially as their online business had in fact increased over 300%, so the message is clear - multichannel retailers must engage consumers successfully both in store and online as the age of "IRIS" ( Internet Retailing In Store ) is now here!

Will Corry's insight:   Book now for IRX 2013 - it's important. Score 76
