11 years ago the AutoFOCUS Awards was created to bring together our supporters and trend-setters from the business, entertainment automotive industries, yes, together under one roof; allowing us to share our collective love and passion for innovative, stylish cars, in a warm and relaxing environment .
What better place to hold such an event than at the Miami International Auto Show on the opening weekend on sexy South Beach where the Miami Beach Convention Center buzzes with activity both outdoors as well as on the showroom floor. Upstairs is where the action is with the 2013 AutoFOCUS awards.
Besides the incredible networking and music; a fan favorite has been and will always will be the red carpet and photo corner where everybody gets to shine for the cameras..looking good, smooth, elegant, debonair and classy, this is where the glamour and glitz of the event takes part. It’s also the place where social media goes haywire as our photo subjects set Facebook, twitter and instagram ablaze.
The heart of the AutoFOCUS awards is of course, the awards. Over the past decade, award recipients have included a who’s who of achievers in automotive, entertainment, civic leadership and business and this year’s recipients where as impressive as ever; including Janet Carabelli, actor/advocate of the year, Bryant Salter, Business Executive of the year, Robin Martino, actor of the year and Alvaro Cabal, automotive advocate of the year. Congratulations to all of our award recipients and keep up the great work.
To close out the evening, what could be better than touring the Miami International Auto Show where lots of cool activities and hundreds of incredible cars are on display? It’s the first major auto show of the season and one of the best places to be and be seen, and not a bad place to find a cool car that fits your fancy.
We want to take a moment to shine the spotlight on our sponsors for the event who now sit in the driver’s seat when it comes to reaching our diverse and influential audiences. They are Cadillac, Ford, Hyundai and Mazda. Be on the lookout for plenty of coverage on their innovative models and cool activities throughout the year.
