Your only destination to all things CARNIVAL
It may be the move to catapult the carnival industry to the very next level. There should be no doubt that the concept of the Caribbean carnival- the model initialised by Trinidad and Tobago, has extremely far reaching potential. With global festivals such as Coachella, OvO Fest, and Summerfest among others, drawing thousands to their venues, there’s no reason why a Caribbean carnival concept, should not be among the ‘Music Festival’ big wigs that the world talks about annually.
Tribe’s Dean Akin, together with Eventology’s Derrick Lewis and Caesar’s Army’s Jules Sobian with the help of Jamie Stewart of Commune Sports and Entertainment, are credited with conceptualising the CarniCon convention. This evening’s launch at the National Academy for the Performing Arts in Port-of-Spain will feature a Keynote and Masterclass by brand evangelist and world leading digital futurist, Bonin Bough who’ll enlighten the audience on how digital innovation can transform value streams and generate revenue for governments, Carnival stakeholders and brands.
According to the team, with Carnival being an integral part of Trinidad and Tobago’s culture and tourism product, the convention aims at establishing this country as the owner and leader in the practice, execution and business of Carnival to an attentive global audience of practitioners and enthusiasts in 2020.
