If I’m an e-commerce solutions provider, how can I attend?
While they will not be able to purchase individual tickets to attend the event, solutions providers can attend by either sponsoring one of their finalist clients or by selecting one of the premium sponsorships, outlined here.
Do I have to be present in order to win an Excellence Award?
Can I prepare a video acceptance speech on the chance that my company is selected as a winner but we can’t be physically present at the Awards ceremony?
While we prefer to have our finalists in attendance the evening of the Awards banquet, we do not require any of our finalists to be in attendance in order to win an Excellence Award. If you know you will not be able to travel to Chicago this June for IRCE but your company winds up winning an Excellence Award on June 7, we will accept in on your behalf and arrange to have it shipped to you. An alternate possibility is to prepare and send ahead of time a video acceptance speech that we would run in absentia should you win an Award. Contact us at email@example.com to discuss this option.
