Our Haute 100 list details the accomplishments of the most influential people in each of our markets—Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. These people continue to make moves, so rather than waiting for the next Haute 100 issue to come out, we thought we’d provide you with regular updates on those Haute 100 members who are making headlines. Drawing people from five continents and pumping more than $20 million into the city of Miami, this year’s Market America conference expects to see 22,000 attendees who will discover how JR and Loren Ridinger’s new integration strategy combining MA’s people power with SHOP.COM’s technology is a total game changer for the internet shopping world.
