The internet offers powerful tools for accomplishing almost any goal: from managing teams, to sharing new ideas, to networking, and making sales. But even considering everything that can be accomplished from behind a computer screen, getting out of the office and traveling to a conference is still one of the best investments you can make in your company and in yourself. Featuring over 600 exhibitors and over 10,000 attendees, the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE) is the place to be for any organization with an e-commerce presence. Here’s why:
