Jenson Button and experts from Mars, Trinny London, River Island and Lounge Underwear among speakers as retail leaders meet at first ever IRX @ DTX+UCX at ExCel London

Former F1 champion Jenson Button and experts from Mars, Trinny London, River Island and Lounge Underwear will be among the many engaging speakers when senior level retail technology experts gather to collaborate, meet suppliers and expand their network at IRX this October.

For the first time ever IRX, the leading eCommerce event, will be at ExCel London, close to the offices of many retail organisations when it is co-located with DTX + UCX which is taking place on 12 & 13 October.  Registration is now open.

The show is set to bring together around 5,000 senior tech and digital decision makers, eCommerce heads, developers and architects to explore the rapidly changing landscape and discover new tech, new ways of working and the very latest in modern commerce.

A comprehensive exhibition at IRX will showcase the latest technologies and solutions to transform digital offerings, improve functionality and customer experience. Retailers can also catch up with their peers through dedicated networking opportunities, curated conversations and learning.

Alongside practical workshops and boardroom roundtables is a conference with top level speakers from global heavy hitters including Mars, the Co-op, Dr Martens, River Island, the BBC and Lounge Underwear. Former F1 champion Jenson Button will be one of two keynote interviewees along with Pulitzer nominated journalist Carole Cadwalladr while Georgie Barratt from the Gadget Show will explain how the metaverse will impact the retail landscape.

Stuart Barker, Portfolio Director at Clarion Events, organisers of IRX, explains why a visit to the show is a ‘must-do’ for retail technology leaders: “This is a superb opportunity in London for everyone engaged in the retail world to discover all about the latest developments in eCommerce and customer experience. The retail environment is evolving at an incredible rate with convenience, value and customer demands driving developments.  New channels and competitors are disrupting the market and retailers face the dual challenge of keeping one step ahead, but also evolving in a way that’s relevant and sustainable for their business. We’ve carefully created our show to put retailer needs front and centre with a global range of suppliers and experts who can support retailers on their digital journey.”
