A place where entertainment collides with education and stars are discovered. Imagine this taking place 365 days a year culminating in a 3 day event. Imagine the Republic Bank Decibel Conference and Entertainment Expo.
  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. 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: WHEN AND WHERE? The 2016 Republic Bank Decibel Conference and Entertainment Expo will take place from April 29-30th at Queen’s Hall, St.Ann’s (samevenue as last year). LET’S TALK STRUCTURE... The Decibel Expo is a wonderful opportunity to target multiple demographics. Last year was such a hit that we’ve decided to feature 2 full Expo days! From April 29-30 vendors, entrepreneurs and key players from local, regional and international entertainment firms will have the opportunity to show- case their company’s products and latest innovations. Offering 2 full expo days can now allow exhibitors a chance to interact with a captive audience of over 10,000 consumers! So whether your product line is meant for the young or the young at heart, the Decibel Expo is the place to be! Expo Time: 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. CONFERENCE AND WORKSHOPS On Thursday 29th February we’ll be staging at One Day Conference that will focus on four main entertainment sectors: fashion, film, dance and music. As customary, this conference is free to students who register through their schools. Workshops will also be held on that day and the days leading up to the event. 2014 1 Day Conference 1000 students 2015 2 Day Conference 1 Day Expo 1 Major Attraction blink|bmobile Zombie Island, over 4000 patrons
  5. 5. 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. Partnering with us on the Decibel event is a commitment to a brighter future for all! ATTRACTION APPEAL Theblink|bmobile Zombie Island was such a successthat we've decided to add more attractions!
