Mark Pigou, organiser of Internet Retailing Expo 2012 told Profitero,  “First there was eCommerce, then mCommerce and now fCommerce and tCommerce, reflecting the growing influence of – respectively – mobile, Facebook and television in the multichannel mix. We could also, perhaps, talk about p-commerce, for the increasing number of marketplace options or d-commerce, for manufacturers going direct to consumer.”

What is certain is that the number of channel options will not decrease and that successful businesses will need to have a stake in as many of them as possible, he explained. IRX provides an ideal opportunity to catch up with many of these developments. 
Paypal and Amazon are speakers at IRX 2012
“As well as speakers from such companies as Amazon, Experian Hitwise, John Lewis, Paypal and Shutl ready to share their insights and experience, there are more than 100 exhibitors offering solutions for everything from live chat to payment systems or e-commerce fulfilment.
