Find Your Imagination

close formula

No words can completely capture the magic that took place at Matrix Destination 2016. There was a captivating energy that filled the air throughout the three-day event that no one could escape from, and no one wanted to. It was inspiring, educational and totally consuming—it was as if the outside world didn’t exist and that was okay. As always, BTC was there to take it all in, and for everyone who couldn’t make it down to Orlando for Destination 2016—no worries!  BTC has the only recap you need to find your own inspiration and to #ImagineAllYouCanBe.



The event kicked off Saturday night when BTC’s Mary Rector-Gable hosted a preshow interviewing some of the Matrix Artistic Team before the incredible opening show began. Sunday and Monday followed with Hands-On classes, Look and Learn classes and non-stop fun with some of the best in the biz! Watch the entire opening show and check out the highlights from the amazing weekend below!
