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.
