This year the ShipStation team attended IRCE in the world-class city of Chicago for the sixth year in a row. The trade show was once again held at The McCormick Place West, but this time it combined three shows into one. The exhibit hall was shared with exhibitors from IRCE, RetailX, and GlobalShop. The IRCE floor alone featured nearly 600 top solution and technology vendors, making it the biggest show yet.

IRCE was a jam-packed three days. In honor of another successful year, we’re sharing some of our favorite moments from IRCE 2019. Check out the photos and recap video we put together to remember it all!

The ShipStation Booth

We’re proud to say that this was our biggest booth presence at IRCE yet. The ShipStation team met with over 50 partners, did countless product demos, interacted with attendees, handed out free swag, and much more. It’s fair to say that the booth was a huge hit amongst all IRCE attendees. A big shoutout to our team of ShipStation experts for manning the booth.

IRCE was better than ever this year! Seeing all of the innovation in eCommerce was really exciting, and meeting so many ShipStation users in person was definitely the highlight of the trip.

The Selfie Cookie

This year our booth’s main attraction was the selfie cookie. Thanks to Selfee, attendees were able to have their picture taken and printed within minutes on delicious sugar cookies. The edible selfie had people coming back day after day to pick up cookies for themselves and their friends. On the first day alone we printed over 400 selfie cookies. Thank you to our partners Miva and BigCommerce for sponsoring at the ShipStation booth.

The Ecommerce Speakeasy

This year we once again put on the eCommerce Speakeasy. We teamed up with partners SkuVault, BigCommerce, Classy Llama, Kensium, and Klaviyo to deliver one of the biggest IRCE after parties.

The entire venue was filled to capacity and included endless free swag, signature drinks, a themed photo booth, and blackjack tables.

This year’s Ecommerce Speakeasy was bigger and better than ever before! With the Prohibition-era Chicago supper club venue, six signature drinks, a little black jack gambling (with fake money), a themed photobooth, and unlimited partner swag, it was the after party to be at.”

Charla Session-Reed, Director of Partner Marketing and Events at ShipStation

IRCE was such a great experience! Not only did we get to meet many of our merchants in person, but we also got to see all the new and exciting things our partners are working on. I can’t wait for IRCE next year!

Jennifer Rubin, Partner Marketing Manager at ShipStation

A final thank you to everyone across multiple ShipStation teams that made IRCE 2019 one to remember. The contributions of every individual made this event all possible. We’re thankful for all the partners we visited, users we met, and the attendees we interacted with. Every person that stopped by the ShipStation booth made this year worthwhile. We’re already looking forward to IRCE 2020!
