For five years, VJMedia Mixology has served as the collision point in Miami connecting influencers, bloggers, and media personalities and rising innovators with likeminded brands to build lasting relationships. “There is no better time to use our platforms for good to positively impact our communities. Whether you’re a small business owner, start-up creator, blogger or media personality, the time is now to affect the change we want to see in the world” said Vanessa James, Founder and CEO of VJMedia, producer of VJMedia Mixology.  “As I curated the theme for this year’s event, it was with the greatest intention to awaken the passion of creativity within each of us.”

Nissan, this year’s premiere sponsor is set to showcase their exciting new SUV, the Nissan Rogue. The award-winning Rogue features game-changing technology that is improving the way we drive. DELL Technologies will debut their DELL Canvas driven by Windows Creator, a perfect match for those who have a passion for design. Guests will enjoy carefully crafted cocktails by spirits brand, Cointreau, whose mantra celebrates ‘the art of entertaining’. The brand will also give patrons a chance to create their own cocktail, complete with recipes just in time for the holiday season. Barefoot Wine and Bubbly returns with the premiere of their new Barefoot Refresh Spritzers, perfect for hot Miami nights.
