Every year we evaluate and sponsor the best eCommerce and fulfillment trade shows. Here are the trade shows you can find IDS at in 2020!
SHOPTALK - Las Vegas, Nevada - March 22-25, 2020
Shoptalk is where the entire retail ecosystem comes together to create the future of retail based on the latest trends, technologies and business models, including changes in consumer expectations. (excerpt from shoptalk.com). With over 8,000 attendees from established retail and eCommerce brands, start ups, and the industry this is a huge show with a massive amount of value. What makes shoptalk unique is its emphasis on conversations and relationships vs lead generation and sales. They have a lot of opportunities and programs that foster deep conversations that really make this show stand out from the pack.
2020 will be a unique year as all of the shows 185+ speakers are women from the industry and Shoptalk is leading the charge in empowerment by being one of the first shows to have an all female list of speakers for the year. IDS will have a booth at Shoptalk's trade show again this year and hope to see you there! Click to visit Shoptalk
