SITE TOUR B

3:30 PM - 5:30 PM B8Ta - SOLD OUT

New this year!
B8ta is a retail store designed for trying and buying new tech gadgets but they don’t make any money off the sales. It’s a subscription based model, where start-ups partner with B8TA to get their products in a brick and mortar setting. The products, which include home devices and audio and visual gadgets, emphasize internet connectivity and all lend themselves to a tactile experience. B8TA provides these innovative, smaller brands with a prominent store front that would otherwise be cost prohibitive for them.
Learn about this new store concept through a guided tour with Chelsey Murray, the General Manager and then you'll have plenty of time to explore the store and test out unique products yourself!

Tour Guide: Chelsey Murray, GM, B8TA
