FREE coffee anyone?

BY Nicky Champ, 7 min READ

9 to Thrive is happening again in just over two week’s time!

By now you’ve snapped up your ticket, seen the schedule and mapped out your day … right, guys?? Well, we also want to give you the lowdown on where you can get the best experiences like a complimentary headshot and free coffee – you know, the important stuff!

Snap a free headshot

Does your LinkedIn profile need some love? Are you using a selfie to promote yourself? Put your best face forward by taking yourself along to Bumble’s stand to receive FREE professional headshot. They’ll also be providing complimentary hair and makeup touchups too. That’s worth the ticket price alone!

FREE coffee!

Hot tip: Once you’ve scanned your ticket, take a peek at your program  – we’ll hand you one on the way in – and head straight to Repubblica to grab your free coffee.

The VIP and Premium Member lounge

Are you a VIP ticket holder or one of our awesome Premium members? Make your way to our exclusive lounge to refresh and recharge. It’ll be stocked with plenty of goodies and surprises throughout the day.

Pop-up crèche

Bringing kidlets to 9 to Thrive this year? Brilliant, we love kids! But if you do want to watch a panel session without having to keep your toddler amused or want to pamper yourself at one of our beauty bars, book in for a 2-hour session at The Green Elephant’s pop-up crèche. Book ahead to avoid missing out, for all info and to choose your session time click here.

Pink latte, anyone?

You know The Daily Edited for their beautiful personalised goods, and at 9 to Thrive they’ll be handing out free pink lattes between 9-1pm on Friday and Saturday. We’ll take three!

Get braids at the Blow Bar Co.

The Blow Bar Co. will be on hand to make your hair on-point while you’re at 9 to Thrive. Their talented stylists will be offering complimentary dry hair styling, whether you want to tame your curls, get some flicks, or rock a side braid. Go early!

Mmm crepes…

Nutella and Four Frogs Creperie have teamed up on a crepe station at this year’s 9 to Thrive. Buy a delicious crepe and they’ll throw in a personalised Nutella jar. Breakfast sorted.

Glow-getter? We thought so

Due to popular demand, we’ve added more beauty experiences to 9 to Thrive this year. You’ll find the Glamazon goddesses doing hair and makeup touchups (and handing out gift cards), along with makeup brand, NYX who are doing complimentary makeovers and giving away prizes too.

Styling sessions

We know you’re a stylish bunch, but if you feel like you’re stuck in a fashion rut or could do with some advice on what to wear to a job interview or date night, head to Simone Perele’s stand to book your complimentary mini-styling session.

Cricket Australia lounge

Meet cricketing superstars, nibble on snacks, and sit on comfy couches all while you watch the live feed from the main stage. Hot tip: seats at the main stage are hot property at 9 to Thrive, so a spot in Cricket Australia‘s lounge is the next best thing!

Check 1-2

Can’t remember the last time you exercised? Or didn’t reach for a sugar hit at 3pm? Us too. Get Healthy at Work will be conducting free health assessments with professionals on standby who can answer all your lifestyle questions. And if you’re skin’s feeling a little lacklustre, head to Elizabeth Arden’s pop-up to check the moisture levels of your skin, get some advice on getting your glow back and pick up free samples too.

Win an Invisalign treatment

Our friends at Invisalign are giving away a free teeth-straightening treatment valued at thousands of dollars (we wish we could enter!). To be in the running, head along to their stand to scan your teeth and chat with their experts.

Chill out with Nova FM & Smooth

When we say 9 to Thrive is inspo-overload, we mean it! If you need to put your feet up and digest all the insights and advice from our incredible speaker lineup, make a bee line to Smooth & Nova FM’s chill out area. We’ve heard they’ll be handing out a bunch of freebies too.
