NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (July 2003) - The wheels are in motion for BiZBashFla, the one-stop resource and guide for event planners and marketers, with the hiring of key staffers Ethan Gordon, Sales Manager, and Shari Lynn Rothstein, Executive Editor.

It's time to give those who truly make the event their 15 minutes of fame," she says.
