Thrive Festival returns to the convention centre Dublin for its second year following a successful weekend of fitness, lifestyle and wellness in 2019.

This year’s event will offer more fitness classes, cooking demonstrations, yoga, meditation and interactive panel discussions.

Mazda will also return as official car partner for Thrive Festival to show how energy management, dynamic mobility and serene quietness mirror the lifestyle of Thrive Festival attendees.

Jinba Ittai

The core philosophy of the Mazda brand is; Jinba Ittai, a Japanese phrase which translates to ‘car and driver as one’.

This focus on connecting the driver with their car creates enjoyment and comfort while driving, allowing the car to be an extension of the driver rather than a simple mode of transport.

Attendees of Thrive Festival will appreciate the Jinba Ittai philosophy as they spend the weekend connecting their body and mind.

John Perry, Managing Director of Mazda Ireland commented: “We are delighted to partner with Thrive Festival again for 2020. Our brand focuses on the joy of driving by building beautifully designed cars that are fun to drive in a way that allows drivers to connect with their vehicle, like a horse and rider.

“The Mazda brand shares many similarities with Thrive Festival through our beliefs and values and are delighted to connect with Thrive attendees over the weekend to share these first hand.”

Tickets for Thrive Festival 2020 are currently on sale and Mazda will showcase their new generation Mazda M Hybrid and Skyactiv-X vehicles over the weekend.

There will also be a chance to win a spa getaway in Powerscourt Hotel worth €1,000 for those who visit the Mazda stand.
