Arturo Martinez from 410 Grand, said: “I’m both appreciative and proud that Summerstage has entrusted us with the task of producing this live event from Trinidad showcasing the immense talent in front of the camera, while also demonstrating the phenomenal technical expertise that exists behind the scenes through partners like Advance Dynamics, SoundVision, Captured Live and Queen’s Hall.”

Next up for QME and 410 Grand LLC is the ambitious effort to expand the global reach of the very first successful edition of the Hands that Help project – which saw the initial broadcast feature over 30 acts on the stage of Queen’s Hall to raise money to assist students in need via UWI’s Global Giving Program, with support from the United Nations, Queen’s Hall, Visit Trinidad, CCN TV6, Advance Dynamics, and official sponsor, Republic Bank.
