These weekly Thursday meetings are held at 10:30 at 1313 Innovation and are a great way to spread the word about an upcoming event. Lauren Spenelli is spearheading this weekly meeting and is excited to find ways to get innovative events in the spotlight of Wilmington and its surrounding areas.
The atmosphere at the meetings is very laid back, fun and extremely positive. There’s also a wonderful food court with plenty of options to grab some lunch afterward. A favorite of many is Bain’s deli. The K-Bop special, if they have it, is life-changing!
