I am really excited about the Internet Retailer Conference & Expo (IRCE 2010) next week in Chicago. Chicago is a great city and there will be a record show attendance of over 6,000 online retailers. Plus, I will be live blogging the event, tweeting - Follow me @bobangus and @VeriSignPartner - and dodging flying knives at the VeriSign booth. But I am thrilled the most about the massive presence of VeriSign partners who are exhibiting at IRCE.
Here are 10 partners that you need to visit when you are at the Internet Retailer.
TheFind - Booth #333
One of the largest shopping comparison sites. They display the VeriSign seal in their listings and search results for merchants that use VeriSign. They measured that those online retailers get 18.5% more clicks than those who do not display the seal.
Rackspace- Booth #165
The ecommerce hosting gurus. I recently did an ecommerce security webinar with the Rackspace team. If you want fanatical support, Rackspace is the place to go.
Yahoo! - Booth #417
Yahoo! makes our SSL products available to SMB and ecommerce hosting customers. We will also be showing off the VeriSign Trust Seal at the Yahoo Merchant Summit on Friday June 11th in Chicago.
