Wynwood, Miami

We get warm as we dive into Miami’s unique hospitality scene. This one-day event looks at Climate change, influence of Cuban flavor and more all in the creative, mural covered neighborhood of Wynwood.

After a stimulating day of engaging panels and INDIEtalks, we enjoy an art walk in Wynwood and an evening of Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails with fellow visionaries in the space. 

In ILC fashion, we keep things raw, original and intimate.
