#IRCE15 as told through the eyes of Twitter

← Back to Articles

One of the wonderful things about attending a conference is the shared experience you have with colleagues and industry leaders. Making connections, building relationships and learning about the business – and how you can make yours better – is priceless. And then, of course, there’s the swag, giveaways and raffles.  

One of the major topics of IRCE15 was social media and it was talked about on multiple levels.  There was discussion about how to best leverage social media to engage consumers, build brand loyalty, provide excellent customer service on social channels, drive traffic and conversions and so on.

Whether in the lively exhibit hall or taking in an informative session, there was a lot of energy at IRCE15! It’s only fitting that the tech-savvy attendees channeled that energy into social media, sharing insights, photos and quotable moments on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.  

Looking back on the week, we wanted to highlight what was said, what was learned, and what work we have to do. We gathered some of our favorite tweets to help summarize what ICRE15 was all about. Let’s get to it.
