After two long, yet exciting days at the Etail 2011, the NetElixir Team has come home to Princeton. It was an extremely rewarding experience I had by attending this show. It was great to see exhibitors, including ourselves, coming together with retailers from all over the country. Not only were we able to network, but everyone was able to learn from each other. This definitely showed true at the panel discussion that our CEO, Udayan Bose, participated in.
The panel consisted of two exhibitors, one being ourselves, and two online retailers coming together to discuss holiday preparedness for 2011 – all from different parts of the country! Each company executive shared their experiences and successes when “dealing with” previous holiday seasons, as well as the outlook for this year. With the volatile state of economy, the holidays are something every retailer seems to be preparing for and for most, feeling anxious about as well. It was extremely useful for retailers of all sizes to be there to listen and plan for this upcoming holiday season.
Overall I believe the show was a success and we were able to get some great people to come to our booth and learn about NetElixir. I’m eager to see if some of the connections we made will continue to the future & what upcoming shows may bring as well!
