Last week, b8ta participated in one of the most influential conferences in the world: the annual TED conference in Vancouver. As longtime watchers of TED talks, and part of a generation invested in transformative ideas, we were honored when TED asked us to build a store amongst some of our favorite thought-leaders worldwide.
We’re overwhelmed (and exhausted) by the success of the event. We featured 19 of our partners’ products at the event, selling over 1,000 items to 2,000 of the most influential attendees in the world!
Here are our top three highlights:
Our fastest store ever built. We may be expert store builders, but our ability to build a beautiful store quickly was tested when TED reached out to b8ta just under two months ago. They challenged us to bring a b8ta experience to TED and our incredible retail team was able to execute it flawlessly. If there was ever any doubt —yes, we really are that good at building stores.
Thank you to all of our partners who worked with us quickly to take advantage of this opportunity. And to our amazing team of builders, testers, and managers for a history-making week at TED.
