Taking things, a step up, this year’s event will feature new elements such as the Thrivers Lounge which would be a VIP area mixed with invited industry guest, samples, mentor areas where up and coming creatives can get one on one time with professionals, and a networking cocktail area. Another new feature would be the ICEBREAKER an area where Thrivers (Individuals who are into fashion, art, media and entertainment) can feel motivated and encouraged to interact with others using various activities to assist with the breaking of the ice.
"This year we accomplished a lot here in Trinidad this time around, the ThriveINLime series was a success with over 30 performers showcased, and over 20 industry professionals shared their experiences to over 400 Thrivers who came and networked with each other over the period of 3 months at Chancellor Hotel in St Anns."
