Finally we have reached the last and probably the most anticipated point in our journey – Chicago! Home to our lovely colleagues, home to beloved Cubs and one of the most fascinating places in the world. Every time we come here we seem to find something new to fall in love with.
This year we were privileged to join Bike MS. Bike MS is the fundraising cycling series of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, purposed to raise money for MS research. It’s an extraordinary experience marked by passion, inspiration, determination and fun. It also included 183 total miles of cycling fun for the Adeo Web team.
Next up – the most important yearly event for Adeo Web (well, maybe after the Christmas party) – IRCE conference and expo. It’s the largest retail and eCommerce conference in the world. This year IRCE was also co-hosted with RetailX, which made it at least twice as big. Over the 3 days in the conference, none of our team members were able to even cover all of it. We could talk on and on about how amazing the experience was, but – and this is a fact – you simply have to come and see it for yourself. What we will say, though, is that this year’s IRCE (+RetailX) was an extraordinary success for Adeo Web. Both for the ideas that we’ve gathered by spending time with some of the world’s most creative retailers, as well for the new partnerships and connections we’ve made. If you’re ever thinking which one eCommerce event you should visit next year – IRCE is definitely the answer.
And this concludes the intro to our summer and Adeo Web marathon. Rest assured, though, the summer has only begun and we will have plenty more stories to tell.
