Yup. This year again X-Cart team is heading to Chicago to exhibit at IRCE, the annual eCommerce conference and trade show.

Oh how we love it. Every event brings new mind-blowing projects, beneficial partnerships and tons of exciting ideas.

Yet our favorite part is networking with you, X-Carters. All the days long we welcome our old friends and new customers.

This time we’ll be waiting for you in Booth 1637 on June 5-8. The place is the same – McCormick Place West, 2301 S Prairie Ave, IL, Chicago, 60616

Getting to McCormick Place might be tricky, especially if you go there for the first time. No doubts, you’ve got a smartphone and know how to google. But just in case you might need some help here’s a detailed “Getting Here” guide.


If you’re going to IRCE by car, think in advance about parking. There are 3 parking lots in McCormick Place. As far as IRCE is in the West Building, parking lot A is your primary parking location.

If you want to book a private space for your car beforehand, you can do it only in parking lot A ($36 per day). So it’s okay to leave the parking, go wherever you want and then come back without paying any additional fee. Overnight parking is possible, too.

The parking rate in lot A is $23 for up to 16 hours. But If you are going to stay longer, it’ll cost you a way more. That’s why, if you want to save money and if you don’t mind walking a bit, leave your car in the Lot B or the Lot C.

Places to stay

You are not from Chicago and you’re looking for a place to stay? In case you want to save your time and fully enjoy IRCE, consider booking the closest hotels — the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place and the Marriott Marquis which are directly connected to McCormick Place.

Who Is Going?

We’re always trying to make our meetings with you, guys, as productive as it’s possible. And we want you to meet the one who will be the most efficient for you. That’s why every year different people are going to IRCE. Check who is going. Maybe you know someone?


The icing on the cake is our new team member Jeff Brandimarte, Director of North American Sales at X-Cart. He has just become a part of our team (yay!) and he’s got impressive working experience, so he knows the industry very well. He’ll come from San Diego to meet you, guys.

Max Vydrin

Max Vydrin, our CEO, is a serial conference-goer and this time he’ll also be in Chicago. Max has prepared some fresh information about X-Cart plans, projects, and ideas. So, you’ll learn everything from the horse’s mouth. Don’t miss it.

Alex Mulin

Alex Mulin, Senior Biz Dev and Head of X-Payments, will be at IRCE 2018 as well. He can sell anything, anywhere and to anyone. And he will teach you, too. Alex always says that attending an eCommerce Expo is the best place to meet cool people and discover new opportunities.

Alexander Dyachkov

Alexander Dyachkov, the head of Support & Hosting teams. He will check the speed and security of your X-Cart store and tell you what should be improved.

Lera Mosina

Lera Mosina has been working at X-Cart since 2015, last year she became the Head of Customer Care team. The same year we launched 24/7 customer care and support service. Since then Lera is trying to improve our customers’ experience. At IRCE her goal is to meet our clients in person and learn what they are looking for.

Yulia Filatova

Yulia Filatova, our project manager, has been working at X-Cart for 15 years already. Before she became a PM, Yulia tried her hand at developing. 2 years later she changed her mind and never looked back. BTW, it’ll be her first big trip. And she is so happy that it will be to the States.
