9toThrive FAQs

Got a question?!

The cost has increased from previous years - what’s different?
We’ve changed up the format with a focus on carefully curated content. Unlike other years where you could dip in and out, this year you’ll want to be there all day to soak up everything!

What’s new?
- International speakers
- Guaranteed seating
- Highly curated hands-on workshop sessions
- Unlimited FREE coffee all day (when you bring your own cup!)
- FREE breakfast and refreshments
- Happy hour networking drinks (on us)!
- Welcome pack filled with goodies
- Access to experts from Facebook and Amazon
- Interactive keynote and panel discussions
- More networking opportunities
- Access to session recordings post event
- Surprises (as always!)

Will I get to access this content after the event?
Yes! You’ll get access to exclusive recordings for four weeks after the event.

What are the hashtags?
We love how organised you are: #9TOTHRIVESUMMIT #9TOTHRIVESUMMIT2019

Can I meet the speakers?
Where possible, there will be opportunities to say hi to some of the speakers, although it's not guaranteed for all unfortunately because of their schedules.

Can I bring my baby?
Sure can! Babies always welcome. There won't be any child-minding facilities on site, but there are parents rooms located within the venue. It’s also important to tell you that prams can’t be brought into the theatre, however you'll be able to park them just outside the event room.

Can I meet Emma Isaacs?
Yep, we know people, who know people and we can make that happen! Emma will be around at the Business Chicks Booth throughout the day to sign copies of Winging It and have a chat (and a selfie!).

Is it workshop-style or a lecture series?
Both! The main stage is lecture style, but there is also a workshop style room that you'll be able to book into after you purchase your ticket, closer to the day.

What's the difference between the main stage and workshop rooms?
The main stage features a mixture of keynotes and interviews. The workshop room is much more ‘how-to’ and interactive with the chance to ask all the questions! You'll leave with practical tips and skills you can implement into your everyday work-life. Bring your notebook!

Will there be allocated seating? Is there guaranteed seating?
The seating will be broken up into sections, but you will not be allocated an individual seat (although there are enough seats for everybody!). You'll find out your section closer to the date, and it will be on your name badge on the day.

Is there accessible seating?
Of course! There is accessible seating available, but please let us know in advance when you book your tickets, by emailing events@businesschicks.com.au so we can ensure we reserve one for you.

I’m a Premium member, what benefits do I get?
Premium members get access to the pre-sale, plus $80 off the ticket price (oh yeah!)
- Fast tracked entry on the day
- A Business Chicks reusable coffee cup - which means free coffee all day!

Will there be exhibitors? What type of exhibitors?
Yes! But it’s a little different if you’ve been to previous years. There will be large scale activations by some very cool brands and you’ll have plenty of time to check them out during breaks on the day.

Will food be available on the day? Will coffee be available on the day?
Complimentary coffee will be available all day to everyone who has a reusable cup, so make sure you bring one with you - or buy a cute one from the Business Chicks booth at the event. Snacks and surprises will be handed around on the day, and lunch can be purchased at one of the participating stalls at the event.

Should I bring a laptop/notebook?
You'll be given a notebook and pen on arrival, but if you want to take notes on your tablet or laptop, go for it!

Are there charging stations?
Yes - one of our awesome activation partners will have a charging station available!

Can I become a Premium member of Business Chicks on the day?
Yes you can! We can’t wait to welcome you! Just come and find the team at the Business Chicks booth.

Can I dip in and out, or should I plan to stay all day?
Plan to stay all day, you won't want to miss any of the content! Or the Happy hour networking drinks 😉

I want to go to the Workshop Room, how do I guarantee myself a seat?
All ticket holders will be given access to the 9 to Thrive Summit app. Two weeks out from the event, registrations will open for the workshop sessions and you’ll be able to book your spot.

Is there transport available to ICC or parking on site?
Yes, there is paid on-site parking available, or head here for public transport options.

Will there be free wifi?
Visitors to ICC Sydney have access to free public wi-fi for basic downloads (like Instagram or emails).
