With 356 exhibiting companies signed up to date, 8.5% come from outside of the United States. This year`s Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition will take place June 8-11 at McCormick Place West in Chicago.

"Over the last couple of years we have seen a big increase in foreign vendors looking to IRCE as a way to offer their services to the e-retailing community," says Steve Rogers, director of exhibitions. "Participating countries include Australia, Canada, Estonia, Germany, India, Israel, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Vietnam."

The IRCE Exhibit Hall is quickly reaching sold-out status, with the number of booths committed growing 15% above the number at this time a year ago. 91% of booth space has been committed. Total capacity in the IRCE Exhibit Hall this year will be 544 10-by-10 booths. Last year, the exhibit hall at the Boston Convention Center held 494 booths.

"The IRCE Exhibit Hall also has wide reach within the United States with exhibitors coming from 38 of the 50 states," Rogers says.
