The Independent Retailer Conference Expands Their Event Dates By Partnering With Trade Shows
The Independent Retailer Conference (IRC), founded in 2011, has expanded their conference dates to include pop up conferences at various trade shows. Having previously held flagship conferences in New York City and Chicago, the IRC made their debut trade show conference appearance at the March 2014 ASD Show, the nation’s largest general consumer merchandise trade show with nearly 40K attendees.
The Independent Retailer Conference is dedicated entirely to the unique lifestyle and responsibilities of retail small business owners. Their education-rich, action-packed events offer retailers the chance to engage, learn and connect with retail experts, industry leaders, service providers and like-minded entrepreneurs. Attendees of an IRC experience can expect an interactive event that leaves them better educated and more inspired – with takeaway tools to bring back to their stores.
Past sponsors of the Independent Retailer Conference have included Shopify, Constant Contact, SnapRetail, MOO and Yelp. Constant Contact’s Ron Cates has been to the last two Independent Retailer Conferences, with a third scheduled, and shared his thoughts.
