A Foodie’s Dream at SOBE Wine and Food Festival

Posted on Mar 17, 2018 - by Rachel Asher

Scripps Networks asked Digital Lion for the 4th year in a row to provide a VIP experience for their top clients at South Beach Wine and Food Festival. 

Of course, we jumped at the chance. This festival is truly the best in the business and we love all of the access we get to some of Food Network's best talent. We started our VIP experience with accommodations at The Royal Palm, a luxury hotel in a central location. Next, we welcomed guests with a private cocktail reception at a Michelin Star restaurant right on Ocean Drive (some of the best people watching and energy in the U.S., in my opinion). This was the perfect way for the group of VIP's from all over the country to connect and form friendships for a festive weekend on the beach. DLM was able to access several talent meet and greets and photo opps for our guests through our knowlege gained over the 4 years we have taken groups to this festival. The tickets we provided for our guests included VIP access (for getting to the front of the line and front row seats at demonstrations). Taking selfies with Guy Fieri at The Burger Bash was definitely a highlight of the weekend. Our clients were raving about the food, beverages and talent exposure all weekend long. Check out these two amazing thank you notes I received from our guests:

"Thanks for everything Rachel! You and your team were fantastic hosts. I appreciate everything so much!" GARY, General Manager // Gary Crossley Ford

"It was great meeting everyone! Thanks for the incredible weekend, we really enjoyed it." STEVE, General Manager // Frank Leta Acura
