After months of anticipation, the inaugural Curalate Summit went off in fine style. Hundreds of people gathered at New World Stages in New York on October 18 to discuss digital marketing, visual commerce, social media, influencers and the future of e-commerce. We heard from amazing speakers like best-selling author Jonah Berger, Pinterest’s Michael Akkerman and American Apparel’s Thoryn Stephens. We watched attendees play with our interactive GIF booth, get creative with our graffiti welcome wall and browse some of our clients’ top performing imagery in our pop-up gallery.

We’re incredibly grateful that so many people shared their experiences on social media. Here’s the best of Instagram:
