What is IRX Engage?

IRX has always been a source of new leads and a great place to network with retail decision makers.

As we wait to get back to hosting great in person events, we’ll be bringing you a series of online experience days. Based on research with our retailer audience, these are designed to enable the industry to connect, solve problems and support each other through these turbulent times.

All sponsors and exhibitors at IRX & eDX 2021 will be a given a number of FREE opportunities at IRX Engage which will take place on specific days over the upcoming months including a four day virtual event from 7-10 September.

Each day will focus on particular topics and retailers will be able to join a range of different keynotes, panel debates, discussions and roundtables.
