myGemma, A Leader in Pre-Authenticated Luxury Brands Presents on MARKET.LIVE
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. and LEHI, Utah, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verb Technology Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: VERB) ("VERB" or the "Company"), the leader in interactive video-based sales-enablement applications, including shoppable livestream video, has been hosting Shopfest, a 3-day livestream shopping event taking place July 26, 27 and 28 to mark the launch of MARKET.live, VERB’s new 24/7 social shopping and livestream commerce platform where shoppers can explore hundreds of livestream shoppable stores, with more added every day. Noted Rory J. Cutaia, CEO and Founder of Verb, “The event is exceeding expectations. With over 50 streams in three days, Shopfest is on track to be the largest livestream event that’s happened to date in the U.S.” Shopfest has been going coast to coast, with shows streaming from studios in Los Angeles and New York, simultaneous productions simulcast over social media networks, with the ability for viewers to flip between 3 or 4 other events.
Yesterday’s Shopfest lineup included myGemma, a resale storefront focused on pre-authentication. Among the inventory of Gucci, Prada and other luxury brands, on offer is a crocodile Birkin bag valued at $100,000. Observed Cutaia, “Livestreaming and the luxury resale make a heady mix. The combination of a product’s scarcity and the aspect of it being there for just a limited time opens up new possibilities for resale platforms that have prized, unique, pre-owned items in their inventory. Along with this, is our hope to see a further convergence of resale and celebrity influencers in the future.”
Now in its third and final day, Shopfest is a 3-day social shopping marathon, streamed live on MARKET.live and simulcast on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook Live, and other major social media outlets from studios on the east and west coasts, as well as from other locations all around the country. This fast-paced event is conducted in a show format, featuring emcees based in Los Angeles and New York City, who direct viewers to one of three simultaneous channels to engage with their favorite vendors, brands, hosts, and influencers. Notes Cutaia, “Showcasing the multidimensional capabilities of livestreaming, MARKET.live is more than just a cool, new way to shop. It’s the new place to meet, greet, and engage with your favorite brands, influencers, creators and artists, as well as with other shoppers through a unique, fun, shoppable livestream experience.”
