IRCE 2012 and the Power of User Engagement

Web Cube has returned from Chicago after attending the 8th annual Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE), where over 9,000 retailing and eCommerce executives gathered for speaker sessions with the industry’s top experts and explored an exciting Exhibit Hall showcase of hundreds of eCommerce vendors. The Web Cube team toured the Exhibit Hall to network with eCommerce executives and meet up with Braintree and Avalara, our partners in online payment and sales tax automation solutions.

IRCE’s 175 speakers represented a diverse mix of executives from retail chains to manufacturing, but one central message rang clear throughout the conference – the key to capturing the 21st century online consumer is user engagement. From desktop eCommerce to mobile devices and social media, every online touchpoint must provide visually rich and meaningful content to provide consumers with an engaging online shopping experience and deepen their relationship and loyalty to your brand.

According to keynote speaker Alexis Maybank, the Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Gilt Groupe, the upscale daily deal site has grown to 5 million members and has become one of the top 10 mobile retailers in the U.S. by romancing customers through rich imagery, curated product selections, and a highly customized shopping experience for each customer across all eCommerce, social, and mobile channels.

Web Cube enjoyed participating in sessions with leading industry experts and networking with eCommerce retailers to share our leading integrated CMS and eCommerce platform designed specifically for brands. We’re already looking forward to IRCE 2013!

Web Cube is excited to be participating in PyCon 2012 - the largest annual gathering for the Python programming community which will be held March 7-15 in Santa Clara, CA. As a PyCon sponsor, we'll be joining industry heavyweights like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter, as well as other leaders in the digital space, such as Rackspace, Spotify, Hulu, and Mozilla.

We're expecting to make a big splash at the event, as the leading developers in the Python community are introduced to all the features that make Web Cube one of the most user-friendly robust CMS and E-commerce platforms available on the market today.

Stop by and say hello if you're in Santa Clara!

DjangoCon 2009 Day 2

DjangoCon has been a great experience so far. We have been able to bond with many developers in the community and been inspired by the conversations and talks.

Thanks to Brian Luft from Lincoln Loop for giving a shout out to our CEO, Aaron Cuker in his panel about how to sell Django. During this panel we gained insight from lead Django developers at NASA, PBS, and others.

We have found quit a bit of interest in our E-Commerce platform. We feel that there is a big need for the product within the Django Community and we aim to provide the best E-Commerce Django platform.

We are giving a lightning talk today about Web Cube's E-Commerce Model. After this conference we hope to solidify several new reseller relationships that offers the value of the E-Commerce and Core Products to Companies and Agencies across the nation.
