With still two months before the start of the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition, June 8-11 in Chicago, the Exhibit Hall is 96% sold out, Internet Retailer director of exhibitions Steve Rogers reports. Only 24 booth spaces remain, Rogers says.
IRCE 2010 already has 383 exhibiting companies committed, 15 more than the final count for IRCE 2009.
“There is no doubt that the IRCE 2010 Exhibit Hall will sell out, it’s really just a matter of how many companies will not have the opportunity to exhibit at this years’ event,” Rogers says. “In four of the first five years of IRCE, the waiting list to exhibit exceeded 100 companies. Although we don’t expect those kinds of numbers this year, we do expect there will be a waiting list and certainly there will be companies that had wished they had signed up earlier to exhibit.”
The Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition, at McCormick Place West in Chicago, will feature 175 speakers in 91 sessions. Full details are at www.IRCE2010.com.
