All the Hivers were really well prepared for the Digital1to1 but, what about the post-Digital?
Lots of meetings, networking, leads, new synergies… now is the time to organize all the new information and to get down to work. But before that, we always like to look back to see how it was (and let’s be honest, it’s nice to give a bit of envy to the guys who couldn’t make it this time).
Rain featured our welcome cocktail and it was also there on Wednesday but nothing could stop our Hivers.
After an introduction of the amazing Guillermo Torrijos and his virtual alter-ego
WE STARTED WITH…
A view back to the last 10 years of the Spanish ecommerce listening to the experience of two winners of the Ecommerce Awards: Afonso Tomás, Cofounder of PC Componentes and Enrique Bretos, Cofounder and CEO of Pisamonas.
SEO, MKT and Black Friday were the main characters of the speech.
But that was just the beginning, don’t let the rhythm stop…
- +100 Ecommerce
- +80 Digital solutions
- 275 people
- 120 tables for the 1to1 meetings
- 1299 meetings in 2 days
And here they go 10 years, it seems that it was yesterday but it’s already 10 years awarding the best Spanish online shop of the year.
Ruben Baston’s natural charm as host and the great interventions of the members of the jury were a preface of what would happen at the Afterwork.
But let’s go with the winners first:
- Best Spanish Ecommerce: PC Componentes, Tiendanimal (2º), Mascoteros (3º)
- Best Honorary Startup: Clicars
- Best Honorary Mobile strategy: Promofarma
- Best Honorary Omnichannel strategy: Fnac
- Best Honorary Cross border strategy: TradeInn
AFTERWORK – DIGITAL WESTERN
Our experience bees (well, the ones in charge of the party) get better at every edition.
It was somewhere in the far west were Cherokees and Cowboys meet for an apparently quiet after work till… till the doors opened and revealed the mechanic bull!
Virtual duels, mechanic bull and a tavern dinner led to a line dance course as an introduction to the party.
A DOUBLE COFFEE
That’s every Hiver most valuable asset for a Thursday morning, double coffee to face the last 1to1 meetings and make the most of them.
You already know that The Hive never stops and there’s no much time to rest but we are very proud of all our Hivers who showed their great professionalism being sharp at their meetings (with some bags under the eyes, tough) to keep working hard.
But before heading Atocha there was one last thing to do…
And being in Segovia how we could end a Digital1to1 without a piglet, so while all the meetings were taking place, down at the restaurant piglets were low heat cooked.
Ready, dish on hands and let’s cut them!
Are you gonna miss them?
