Decibel Conference and
A LITTLE HISTORY...
Originally launched in 2001, Decibel was the ﬁrst industry event in Trinidad and Tobago to focus on fostering
growth in the music sector. By 2005, Decibel was successfully attracting over ﬁve thousand participants and some
one hundred executives partaking in panel discussions and oneonone networking sessions.
Thebrand and its vision had grown to such prominence that it caught the attention of companies like Universal,
Disney, Warner and Sony. Decibel is proud to have introduced Trinidad and Tobago to celebrities and
notables making waves in the entertainment industry both locally and abroad. In 2015, Hollywood stars Serayah
McNeill from Fox’s hit show 'Empire' and 'Pretty Little Liars' actressTorrey DeVitto ﬂocked to our shores to be a part
of the movement that is Decibel. Other stars who graced our stages and participated in sessions include:
In 2014 Decibel was rebranded as an Entertainment Expo and partnerships with the private and public sector were
forged to stage the rebirth of this festival event. Continuous support from committed investors like Republic Bank
have allowed us to fulﬁl our mandate. We’ve been able to:
Launcha school tour where we impact over 10,000 studentsin nearly 40 secondary schools across Trinidad.
Provide young creatives with internship and mentorship opportunities
Ofﬁcially launch the Dream Big Foundation; a nonproﬁt organization that offers ﬁnancial support and
resources to ﬁlmmakers, producers, musicians and other local talent.
Experience a whopping 400% increase in patrons in just one year!

Gauging from the success of the previous instalments, Decibel 2016 is poised to grow multifold retaining its title as
THE event for teens/tweens and expanding as an edutainment hub that’s fun for the entire family. While we aim to
provide an alternative to the run of the mill ‘mall and movies’ entertainment routine, Decibel’s true purpose is to
actively demonstrate the vast potential of investing in theArts and Entertainment industry.
2015 was a resounding success and a learning experience for the entire Decibel team. To maintain the event’s
upward trajectory we’ve tweaked the structure a bit. Here’s what to expect:

Decibel believes that excellence is the standard and as such, we’re continuously striving to improve the Decibel
brand and work tirelessly to grow our event to international standards. Through our work with both the private and
public sector, our mission remains the same: to make Decibel the entertainment hub for the entire Caribbe- an,
and a global hub for enterprises involved in any of the related sectors throughout the world.
The Decibel School Tour coupled with our ‘Talent Factory’ and the initiatives that fall under the Dream Big Founda-
tion are proof that dedicated to year round development and not just on the premise of a few days. When we reim-
agined Decibel, we designed a model that would teach, entertain, educate, create networking opportunities and
most importantly, give something back to those who need it the most.
