South Florida Entrepreneurs Launch BiZBashFla
Event Planners and Business Entertainment Marketers: Introducing Your One-Stop Resource and Guide to the Industry's Finest

NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (July 2003) - The brightest ideas, the hottest trends and the coolest venues in the Sunshine State of Florida will be at your fingertips with the launch of BiZBashFla - the one resource for event planners and marketers!

As important as Variety is to entertainment executives, and as irreplaceable as Women's Wear Daily is to fashion designers, BiZBashFla will quickly become the "bible" for Florida event professionals. Focusing on the stars behind the scenes of Florida's hottest events, BiZBashFla showcases who threw it, who produced it, who did the invitations, who catered it, who designed it, who booked the talent, where it was held, and how well it all went down. BiZBashFla is the leading authority for ideas, resources and information for event planning and marketing.

BiZBashFla, the business of all Florida bashes, has acquired the licensing rights from BiZBash Media ( in New York City. BiZBash Media has successfully become the source for essential information about event marketing, meeting and event planning, press conferences and business entertaining in the New York market.

BiZBashFla LLC of North Miami is under the same executive management as Communications & Show Management Inc. (CSM) and Industry Publishers, Inc. (IPI). CSM has managed the world's largest sports product and apparel tradeshow - The Super Show - for nearly two decades. IPI publishes Florida Medical Business, a bi-monthly publication with a circulation of more than 40,000 physicians, hospital administrators and other medical professionals, and produces the Florida Medical Business Awards.

"This is a natural progression for our experienced staff," says Stanley Schwartz, President, CSM/IPI and BiZBashFla. "The executive management of CSM and IPI has more than 30 years experience as trade show management, event planners and publishing veterans."

According to David Adler, CEO and Founder, BiZBash Media, "The licensing strategy works because of the local nature of the meeting and event industries. Local publishers are the best experts in their communities."

The first issue of BiZBashFla's Event Style Reporter will be out October 2003. The first annual BiZBashFla Meeting & Event Expo will be held early November 2003.
