Viral Movements aims to introduce to the Bahamian entertainment industry the power of new media by facilitating this seminar via Voice-over IP and distance learning tools. Viral Movements offers access at a fraction of the cost with similar goals to that of the Power Summit hosted during 2005 in Freeport. The seminar allows for more intimate networking and showcasing opportunities, while providing a digital footprint for all participants.
The main objective is to facilitate the growth of a viable entertainment industry in the Bahamas and export that product internationally [and], to educate virtually and physically, [and to] provide attendees with information that they use to position themselves and brand on a global scale.
The event is hosted by Sophia Lightbourne, formerly known as DJ Shorty [and] currently known as Da Lioness. Lioness was the first female DJ out of the Bahamas to tour internationally, performing all over the Bahamas, Caribbean, US and Canada.
