I attended IRCE last year in order to analyze the event and check if it's worth investing as a sponsor (with a booth) this year. Attendees were really qualified (large retailers mostly from the U.S., but sometimes from Europe and other countries as well). Conferences were really interesting and were always about topics related to e-commerce (how to internationalize your e-commerce business, how to create and implement a content marketing strategy, etc.). So if you offer e-commerce services/platforms or if you work in this space, this is a great trade fair. However, if you wish to go as a sponsor, get ready to spend money. American companies usually invest heavily in events, handing out food and gifts to attendees, and sometimes even offering games and distractions (such as a robot that people can take pictures with, even when they don't specialize in robotics). Bottom line: lots of interesting prospects, lots of competition, and to make money with this event you need to spend money.

Fantastic fair. Great discussions and productive meetings. 1 3/4 days is not a lot if you plan to cover a bit more detailed discussions and discover new opportunities. Might be worth while to review overall structure to allow people to spend the time necessary to fully learn about any new opportunities. Just a thought... !

This is the best conference I've ever sponsored, from an ROI and organization perspective. Our booth was around $5,500 and we were 10 feet away from a huge Walmart installation and other similar but non-competitive startups. Exhibit hall was flooded with people throughout the day and it was not uncommon for myself and 3 team members to simultaneously be talking with potential customers or partners. In addition to selling, we also networked with a handful of other vendors which turned into solid partnerships a few months later.
