Regretfully, the INBLF Board of Directors has determined that the Miami Black Tie Weekend, scheduled for November 5-8, 2020, must be cancelled, due to all the uncertainties and difficulties engendered by the COVID-19 crisis now and in the coming months. In the new normal world in which we all now live, our team will explore holding some of the programs and meetings (both business and social) virtually. So save those dates and watch for more information coming this summer and fall as we plan INBLF’s First Virtual Black Tie Event.
