MIAMI, Florida – July 25, 2017 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Hosted by National Media Personality Vanessa James, the fifth round of her signature event, The VJMedia Mixology marks a milestone in entrepreneurship. Coined a collision point for organic connection in Miami amongst brands, influencers, small business entrepreneurs and media alike, The VJMedia Mixology is quickly receiving national acclaim for its ability to forge organic partnerships and synergies. The event is set for Saturday, September 16th, 2017 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the heart of Midtown Miami. Media is encouraged to RSVP by September 10th as this event will reach capacity.

“For so long the word disruptive has had a negative connotation…until now. On September 16th, Vanessa James will proudly salute and celebrate the social disruptors, creators and innovators who are thriving where they are planted. They didn’t wait for the perfect moment, for the funding or the followers. They went rogue, they are thriving and they are deserving a celebration,” said event founder Vanessa James.

This year’s theme, ‘Saluting Disruptors, Creators and Innovators’ perfectly matches with the event’s premiere sponsor, Nissan. The auto giant’s popularity has surged as of late for good reason. “Nissan is excited about our new partnership with VJMedia as the presenting sponsor for this years event. We want to celebrate those individuals who are changing the world with innovation and creativity. The VJMedia Mixology provides the platform to do just that: celebrate and applaud creators who are following their own path in this new age of ideas,” said Darla Turner, Manager of Multicultural Communications for Nissan.

Guests of #VJMM17 (the official event hash tag) will have unique opportunities to connect with premiere brands as well as meet some of Miami’s most influential social change agents. Just a few notable moments to look forward to this year:

Influencer One on Ones – selected guests will have the opportunity to have 10-minute power meetings with brand leaders from Nissan, DELL, Microsoft, Remy Martin and more;

The Spirit of Excellence Awards– Vanessa will celebrate five disruptors who are operating from a place of excellence within their craft;

An important addition to this years festivities, James will honor social media trailblazer Jewel Figueras who recently lost her battle to cancer. VJMedia will be implementing the “Jewel Figueras Award for Social Good” to one local influencer who personifies excellence in blogging, media and community. This will become a staple part of each year’s event presentation. The award will be presented by Jewel’s husband, Angelo Figueras.
