eTail launched in 1999, with 100 people in a room discussing the future of the retail industry. Flash forward 17 years and we’re one week away from eTail West 2016, with an expected 1,100 retail attendees (the biggest eTail West yet).
Not only will it be the biggest turnout for eTail, it’ll also be the biggest showing for Windsor Circle. Keep reading to learn of all of the different ways we’ll be participating.
Check Out Our New Booth #610
We’ve upgraded our booth to be bigger than in years past. We’re excited to be welcoming retailers into our 10x20 space with a brand new booth that reflects our new look & new logo that made its debut with the new year. Come check out how we’ve made a few changes that emphasize our mission as a Predictive Lifecycle and Retention Marketing Platform.
Talk Email With Us
On Monday, February 22 during the Email Marketing & CRM Summit, we will be hosting our own roundtable with John Williams, Marketing Manager at USCutter - one of Windsor Circle’s IR500 clients. Our topic, “Grow Customer Value with Predictive Lifecycle & Retention Marketing,” will be focused on helping attending retailers grow their customer lifetime value and increase their retention. We’ll help determine tangible strategies all retailers can use to get off the acquisition treadmill, and instead, retain their customers through targeted and automated messages.
Learn How to Get a Cut Above
Don’t miss our breakout session on Tuesday, February 23 at 2:30 pm. John Williams, Marketing Manager at USCutter, a Seattle-based online retail provider of high quality, yet low cost vinyl cutters, will take the stage with Andrew Pearson, Windsor Circle VP of Marketing, to share how they have developed a well-rounded set of automated email campaigns that reach the right customer at the right time. John and Andrew will reveal how USCutter has increased repeat buyers by 143% and obtained an average open rate of 32% and click rate of 7% since deploying and building upon their predictive lifecycle marketing campaigns since 2013.
Join us, along with Silverpop, an IBM company, to enjoy cocktails and canapes under the stars with eCommerce All-Stars. We’ll enjoy an evening off under the beautiful Palm Desert night sky while meeting and mingling with experts from across all verticals over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The party takes place on Tuesday, February 23 and starts at 8 pm. This party is reserved for retailers and select partners only, space is limited, RSVP today!
