Valentine’s Day, the annual cringefest, with its red roses, soppy Facebook statuses and overt PDA, is the first big retail event of the New Year. As discussed by Tim Hinds of Neotys, February 14th is an important day for e-commerce sites that are selling flowers card and chocolates.
Last week Richard and I attended the Internet Retailing Expo (IRX13) at the Birmingham NEC. Described as the UK’s No.1 B2B event for online and multichannel retail, the Expo saw over 150 exhibitors and 5000 visitors through its doors. Further to this, over 60 leading experts from companies such as Amazon, Facebook and eBay gave workshops and presentations.
