MBCC Announces 4th Annual Business Networking Luncheon at The Forge

Friday, Aug. 13, will mark the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce’s (MBCC) 4th Annual “Champions of Business” networking luncheon. The event, which is hosted by the MBCC’s Emerging Leadership Council, will be held at The Forge from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will feature a panel of business-savvy speakers from an array of local industries. This year, panelists include Ricky Arriola, CEO of Inktel Direct and chairman of the Adrienne Arsht Center; Misha Kuryla-Gomez, founder and CEO of Misha’s Cupcakes; and The Forge’s own Shareef Malnik.

Past panelists have included Jill Hertzberg of The Jills; Dr. Arthur Agatston, founder of the South Beach Diet; and Marcel Wanders, designer of The Mondrian, among others.

This year, luncheon moderators will be Michelle Villalobos of Mivista Inc., and Jason Beukema, President of Whet Travel. Because the forum will fill up, interested guests are asked to RSVP by Aug. 1.
