The 6th edition of this award winning show, owned by Clarion Events, will welcome over 6000 visitors and host more than 300 exhibitors and sponsors. Addressing the new key retail, ecommerce, mobile and delivery trends, the show will provide a complete view of the developments currently shaping the multichannel landscape.

Rakuten, Carrefour, House of Fraser, Tesco, Halfords, John Lewis, Supergroup, GANT and other retailers from across the globe will take the stage to discuss and learn what 2016 will bring for ecommerce and multichannel and how they can manage operational challenges to increase growth opportunities and customer satisfaction.

More than 80 multichannel companies and members of the IRUK TOP500, the 500 most significant retailers in the UK and Europe, will be sharing their experiences and learnings within the UK’s largest educational programme at IRX and EDX, including:

  • 8 free to attend conferences under the themes of: The Connected Store of the Future, Mobile in Multichannel, International & Cross Border, Digital Sales & Marketing, Insight & Experience, Digital Merchandising, Multichannel Fulfilment and Operations in Multichannel
  • 15 exclusive clinics: a one-on-one 30 minute consultation session that offers an opportunity to find free expert help on the challenges retailers are experiencing
  • 20 workshops that will provide hands-on, practical sessions delivered by leading companies in the industry

Echoing last year’s successful format, the IRX will be co-located with the eDelivery Expo (EDX), Europe’s only trade show for operations and fulfilment in multichannel. It has two dedicated conferences  - Multichannel Fulfilment and Operations in Multichannel - with speakers from John Lewis, Ocado, Supergroup and Sainsbury’s looking in depth at the delivery and distribution side of Internet Retailing and ultimately how to fulfil the multichannel promise. Service and solution providers will also join the party to showcase the latest technology in packaging, parcels, stock management, warehousing, logistics end-to-end and many more areas to help retailers improve their operations performance.
