Zappos Las Vegas Grand Opening | Downtown Project:
Last Monday, we got to be part of the Zappos HQ grand opening in downtown Vegas. We got to join the masses in breaking the world record for the most people in a ribbon cutting! There was over a mile in ribbon and the total count for people cutting the ribbon was 1577. It should be on RecordSetter shortly. Jabbawockeez even had a surprise performance at the end.
Ever since reading Delivering Happiness, I always wanted to visit the Zappos offices. Instead of just doing a tour of the offices, I got to experience the excitement of a lot of the Zappos employees seeing the new headquarters for the first time. Although, I didn’t get to meet Tony personally, I could really see the great culture of the company that he started. It’s a big move for Zappos, and you can already see the transformation in downtown Vegas. Blog post for the new Downtown Vegas and First Fridays coming soon!
