When Should I Plan to Arrive?
THRIVE officially kicks off at 10am on Monday November 13th! You can choose to arrive the morning of the 13th or take a little extra time on the coast and come in on the 11th or 12th to settle in and enjoy Santa Barbara.
Is THRIVE Only for Photographers?
The main focus of THRIVE is photographers. From weddings, engagements, portraits, families, boudoir and lifestyle. If you are a creative outside the photographer world you are 100% welcome to join and will still get extreme business value and connections here.
How Much Does THRIVE Cost?
Tickets are $1,800.
You can add on styled shoot experiences for about $300 each (once registered).
What Is Included in the Registration Fee?
Where Should I Stay?
We have reserved room blocks at The Hilton directly across from the venue, with a short 8 minute walk to and from! Details will be sent to each attendee once registered...and did we mention it is just 100 steps from the beach?
I Might Want a Roommate?
Excellent! Whether you and a friend are already both attending THRIVE or you are joining us solo, every attendee will be able to join our private online Facebook group to connect and find a roomie!
How Much Should I Budget For?
Beyond Registration, it is really up to you! Of course, budget for your hotel stay (around $239 a night with our block. We will send details once registered.) You will have the option to add-on styled shoots for about $300.
Where Should I Fly Into?
You can either fly directly into SBA (Santa Barbara) which is only 10 minutes from the conference and hotels. Southwest, Alaska, United, and American all fly into SBA.
Or you can fly into LAX and take a drive up the beautiful California coastline. LAX can be more cost effective and is only 75-90 minutes from Santa Barbara.
What Should I Pack?
Great question! Well...NOT your winter clothes! Santa Barbara was named best weather for a reason :) Camera, bathing suit, and of course...your Gala outfit to name a few things. We will be sending a detailed packing list via email to all registrants along with all the inspo you need!
Okay! Where do I sign up?!
