Are You Coming to the Shop.org Summit plus Zappos Tour in September?

Denver, Colorado

The Power Retail USA Learning Tour to the Shop.org Summit plus the optional Zappos Tour is coming up in September – are you in? Bookings need to be finalised, so read on and act soon if you are interested in going.

We’re off again – following a successful trip to Internet Retailer in Chicago, we have been busy organising the first Power Retail USA Learning Tour to the Shop.org Summitwhich runs from September 10-12, 2012, in Denver, Colorado. Plus, as a bonus option, the tour continues post-conference to Las Vegas for a guided tour of Zappos Headquarters, the world’s biggest online shoe retailer. Power Retail toured Zappos with a number of Australian delegates in 2011, and it was a hit – so we’re heading back in September.

The Shop.org Summit is one of the world’s premier multichannel retail and e-commerce learning events, beginnning with Boot Camp on Monday 10 September, featuring a host of exceptional e-commerce presenters including one of Online Retailer’s hits, Amy Africa. The main conference on 11-12 September features keynotes from Jerry Storch, CEO, Toys’R’Us, Laura Wade-Gery, Executive Director of Multichannel E-commerce, Marks and Spencer, Michael Zeisser, SVP, Libery Media Corporation (owners of QVC.com), and Jamie Norsdtrom, President, Nordstrom Direct.

Networking events include a welcome dinner for the Australian delegates in Denver on Sunday 9 September, an invitation-only sponsored networking event with many US retailers on Monday 10 September at the Denver Brewing Company exclusive for the Power Retail Tour, plus the official Shop.org Summit networking event on Tuesday 11 September.

On Thursday 13 September, those wishing to continute to the Zappos Tour will depart for Las Vegas, Nevada, staying at the Bellagio Thursday night with the Zappos Tour on Friday 14 September and the option to return home to Australia afterwards or stay on – we’re flexible!

Here’s what Michael Seder of Roses Only had to say following the 2012 Power Retail Internet Retailer Tour to Chicago:

“This was my first time attending an IRCE event and I was extremely happy that I chose to attend it on the Power Retail Study Tour for a number of reasons. Those reasons being that leveraging off Grant’s experience and tour team it enabled me to get the best out of the event. Also being able to meet and network with both Australian and local US retailers and industry members. Not to mention the wonderful hospitality from Grant and the tour team.

I found the IRCE event very useful for both my career and for the business I am in to benefit from the event. The workshops and speakers were all excellent and the Expo was attended by the A to Z of the ecommerce world. I can recommend the tour and event as a must do for anyone serious about ecommerce. I highly recommend attending the event with the Power Retail Study Tour.”
