Network with online retailers at our events 

Community & events

 

How can your events help me?

By attending our events you will get insights and analysis that you wouldn't get being a standalone retailer and get the chance to network with other online retailers which can inspire new ideas. With a personal aspect and non-salesy environment, IMRG the UK's online retail association organises events for bringing the industry together to talk about trends in online retail, to network, learn and share ideas. Our events are relevant, regular and very focused on specific challenges which allows for a much more in-depth analysis of the problem. 

 

 

 

Why our programme of events is unique

Our membership consists of a broad range of UK online retailers which forms the foundation for a well-represented audience and mix of companies attending and networking in our regular events. IMRG is a neutral organisation and we have run events for 15+ years.
