LOS ANGELES, June 4, 2014 — ZeroLag Communications, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance e-commerce hosting solutions, announced that it will exhibit again at the upcoming Internet Retailer Conference and Exposition (IRCE), the world’s largest e-commerce event. The Chicago-based conference, which takes place June 10 to 13 at McCormick Place West, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Its four days will feature workshops, discussions, and presentations relevant to the e-commerce business sector. A number of high-profile guest speakers will be on hand to discuss the challenges and opportunities in digital commerce and online retail.

The event has developed a sterling reputation for establishing meaningful relationships between exhibitors and attendees, with more than 89 percent of 2013 visitors stating in a survey that they intended to further explore a presenter’s solutions post-event.
Among the scheduled speakers are Niraj Shah, chief executive officer of top home and decor -e-commerce company Wayfair.com, who will deliver the June 12 keynote address on connecting with consumers, and John Donahoe, who has served as the president and CEO of consumer-to-consumer retailer eBay since 2008, who will give the June 11 keynote speech about evolving opportunities in e-commerce.
