Fall is officially upon us, which means the Shop.org Digital Summit is just around the corner! The Edgecase team is busy getting ready for the show and we look forward to seeing and catching up with our customers, colleagues, and peers in Philadelphia. As Shop.org says, “If you have an “Add to Cart” button (and want more customers to click it) you need to be there!” NRF executives expect more than 5,400 professionals to attend this year’s Shop.org Digital Summit, a two and a half day event specifically designed for digital and multichannel retailers.
At Edgecase, we are especially excited about the Summit as we are gearing up for some exciting events and giveaways. Our theme this year, not surprisingly, is “Human-Curated Product Data That Powers Your Business.” You’ve likely picked up on this theme in several of our recent blogs and pretty much in every conversation you’ve likely had with our team. Shoppers don’t want to shop like a robot online. They want online shopping to be like shopping in the real world – personal, interactive, and fun. That’s the power that human curated product data can provide to online product discovery, and we believe it will change retail forever.
But let’s get back to Shop.org! If you will be in Philly October 5–7, here are a few ways you can connect with us!
• The Edgecase team will be at your service in Booth #1256, where we will give away LED sunglasses, light-up yo-yos and light-up rings. The kids will love ‘em and you will, too.
• We are so excited to announce that one lucky winner will receive a SXSW Interactive pass complete with four nights of lodging in downtown Austin. Click here for more information on how to win. (Sorry, retailers only – rules are rules.)
• As part of Shop.org’s “The Doctor Is In” session, our very own Billy Hollis (Sr. UI/UX Designer) will be available to meet with a limited number of retailers on Wednesday, October 7 to walk through their sites and provide them with recommendations on how to improve their navigation experiences. Say “Ahh!”
• Lastly, we’d like to extend a special “retailer only” invite to our private party at the historic Stotesbury Mansion on October 6. If you are a retailer looking for the place to be on Tuesday night, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the details.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
