London, 21 March 2011 – Econsultancy, the leading source of independent advice and insight on best practice digital marketing and e-commerce, will be at the Internet Retailing week expo being held at the NEC in Birmingham on 23 – 24 March 2011 offering digital training and skills development advice.

Econsultancy’s digital training and skills development offers best-practise content, advanced learning platforms and measurable improvement to boost your return on digital. Training courses available include Ecommerce Usability and Best Practice for Online Retailers, Usability and User Experience and eCRM Masterclass. Visitors will benefit from the knowledge and experience of Econsultancy’s practitioner-led training faculty.

Ian Jindal, Founder & Editor in Chief at InternetRetailing.net, commented "We have designed IRX to provide Insights, info and experience to propel your multichannel business forward. Technology and services, however, without the awareness, skills and commercial 'nous' of our teams is worth little. This is why we're so excited to have Econsultancy’s participation and support, as partners for IRX.

We already collaborate closely with Econsultancy (for example we jointly developed an MSc in Internet Retailing, building the skills of tomorrow's multichannel retail leaders), and we've grown the offering to include courses in online merchandising, operations and logistics, social retailing and mobile commerce.

At IRX we're looking forward to the Econsultancy team running skills advice and support to help both individuals and companies gain the skills to compete effectively given the multichannel opportunities."

The Econsultancy Training Team will be available at stand N1 at Internet Retailing Week to offer advice on digital marketing skills development, as well as discussing the range of Econsultancy training available from one-day training courses to tailored, in-company training programmes, MSc qualifications in Digital Marketing Communications and Internet Retailing that specifically address the career and business needs of ambitious retail professionals.
