2015/2016 Social Season Preview


SocialMiami's Social Season Preview will give you a quick overview of what to expect during the 2015-2016 season. Non-profits can also use the Preview as a tool to help plan their important events during the year.

If your event is not listed, just send the information to Melanie when details are confirmed. The Social Season Preview will be continually updated, redistributed and archived on SocialMiami's homepage.

SocialMiami's 9th Annual Gala Guide, the industry standard for pre- and post-event publicity, will be published in early September. The deadline to add your event to the guide is August 23. Call 305-981-0101 or email Melanie for Gala Guide information or to inquire about producing a promotional or event video for your organization.
