About IR Events Group
IR Events Group, a division of GLM, delivers high value and industry-leading content and industry resources, including IRCE, the world’s largest e-commerce conference and exhibition, and IR Focus, a series of targeted education and resource events throughout the year.
Building upon the exceptional value and name recognition that IRCE has delivered to its partners, IR Events Group is committed to evolving and strengthening the IRCE conference and extending the brand to reach a larger audience, in the U.S. and across the globe. As e-commerce continues to grow in markets around the world, IR Events Group is working to launch free-standing IRCE events in Asia and Europe.
The first installment of IR Focus will launch in August 2013, at NY NOW (formerly known as New York Internation Gift Fair). IR Focus: NY NOW will offer two high-value conference sessions, focusing on e-commerce solutions for retailers in the gift and home industry. IR Focus will continue to bring e-commerce expertise to Orlando in September 2013, at IR Focus: Surf Expo, featuring four half-day sessions as well as an exhibition of vendors focused on web retail.
