WooCommerce to Join Independent Retailer Conference at ASD Market Week

Parker, CO (May 12, 2015) – The Independent Retailer Conference is thrilled to welcome WooCommerce for the first time to it’s upcoming August 2-5, 2015 conference taking place at ASD Market Week. 

WooCommerce came to life when three self-described “WordPress enthusiasts from different countries sharing ideas over email” got together with an effort to create an “international team of designers, developers, support ninjas and marketing people that all cater to a passionate and constantly growing community of hundreds of thousands of users.” Basically – WooCommerce is the most popular WordPress eCommerce plugin because it’s awesome and because it’s available for free. Yes, you read that right… free. Packed full of features and perfectly integrated into your self-hosted WordPress website, WooCommerce is a fantastic addition to merchants looking to sell online.

The Independent Retailer Conference is thrilled to have WooCommerce join us in helping merchants gain trusted insight and leadership that they can apply to their businesses. In particular, with WooCommerce being such a popular retailer solution for website commerce, we are looking forward to sharing the fantastic insight WooCommerce offers to the attendees of ASD Market Week,” shares Nicole Leinbach Reyhle, Independent Retailer Conference Co-Founder.

Joining WooCommerce at the Independent Retailer Conference at ASD Market Week will be SnapRetail, Constant Contact, RETAILMavens, ShipStation and more.
