Location and Venue

Thrive will be Hosted in San Diego at the Manchester Grand Hyatt

On October 28th, 29th and 30th (Friday through Sunday)

This iconic, luxury urban retreat is nestled perfectly in the heart of downtown San Diego, right on the bay and was named one of the “Best Meeting & Conference Hotels in the U.S.” by Groups International.

When searching for a venue, part of our requirements were: must be world-class in location, service, comfort, restaurants and bars, and equip us with state-of-the-art space and amenities for our main conference room.

We spared no expenses on this venue and even negotiated one of the lowest nightly rates this hotel has ever offered.

Thrive Networking++

This is where you take networking to a whole new level…

The Exclusive Thrive VIP Dinner

Last year’s SOLD OUT VIP dinner was the highlight of the entire event for those who attended. This year it’s poised to be even better, and like last year, it’s guaranteed to sell out.

Secure your VIP Experience ticket now before you miss an opportunity for dining with high-caliber attendees, networking, building relationships, and discovering exclusive private speaker training, for VIP attendees only.

What you experience in this private, closed-off-from-everyone-else dinner could very well be an absolute game changer for you.

Seating is very limited.

The Halloween Networking Party

Building relationships goes to a whole new level at our very exclusive VIP Halloween networking party on Saturday evening. We’ll have the DJ spinning your favorite songs, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and carving stations, along with a cash bar to enjoy your favorite beverage.

This is where real friendships will be formed as we relax and enjoy a fun evening together. Although costumes are optional, we will have giveaways and prizes for the best costumes.

This exclusive Halloween Networking Party has VERY limited number of available tickets as the venue area does have a capacity limit – register for Thrive today!
