Michael Cerbelli

Michael Cerbelli’s The Hot List™

verb | in.spire | inˈspī(ə)r/
  1. To fill someone with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.
  2. Breathe in (air); inhale.

Michael Cerbelli’s: The Hot List™” is the definition of inspiration. It exists to provide not only the urge, but the ability to accomplish creative greatness.

This incredible presentation has become a ‘can’t miss’ annual event in and of itself. In “The Hot List™,” Michael takes the hottest, newest and most inspiring event and entertainment insights and showcases them for the producers in a breathtaking 90 minute, head-spinning romp. A word of advice; have your espresso ‘on board’ and don’t blink, you might miss something!

With “The Hot List™,” Michael identifies fresh trends in the ever-changing marketplace and showcases acts and innovations for enhanced experiential marketing. “Michael Cerbelli’s: The Hot List™” is more than an education in the direction of event production, it is Michael’s way of giving back to the industry which has given him so much.

It’s been said that how ‘The Hot List™’ goes, so goes the industry. Michael himself has even become ‘the event within the event,’ posing for pictures with fans even as he orchestrates the magnificent happening. Michael’s secret? He loves what he does, and he loves to see others succeed. Michael never needs to be the life of the party; his dream is to bring life to your party.

Michael Cerbelli is the very definition of international events. For over 38 years, Michael has done more than change the paradigm of prestigious happenings – Michael has become the paradigm.

If you have been one of the fortunate invitees to a Cerbelli creation, you know who he is. But more importantly, you have experienced first-hand Michael’s breathtaking creativity and mad technical expertise. His success is the result of more than just his mind-blowing concepts, it’s also because his events go off with a military – yet transparent – precision. Though a fixture in the New York City events scene, Michael’s influence is worldwide; from the Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to a birthday party for the King of Morocco, to a signature event at the palace of Catherine the Great in St. Petersburg, Russia, Cerbelli Creative’s events are legendary.

Michael’s recent multi-million-dollar ‘Brooklyn Bar-Mitzvah’ at the Barclay Center grabbed the attention of the worldwide press from CNN to the BBC. Still, Michael’s passion is to do more than create incredible experiences. He would much rather be ‘giving back’ to the event community than fielding calls from the press. Michael’s heart is expressed through his wildly-successful, “Michael Cerbelli’s: The Hot List™” events. With “The Hot List™,” Michael works to inspire producers throughout the industry, reveal the latest trends, and fill their creative toolbox with the latest event resources.

It takes big personalities to do big events – personalities as big as the events themselves. And Michael Cerbelli is that person; larger-than-life, charismatic and in-charge.

Experience: The New Status Symbol – Using Science to Design With Confidence

In today’s experience-driven world, engaging and motivating your meeting and incentive guests is essential. However, only leaning on best practices can create a sense of “better sameness,” resulting in disappointed guests.

By applying experience design principles based on neuroscience that provide a total program experience—from the beginning to end of your event.

  • Learn the power of a single word & how it can define your event.
  • Understand the phases of the guest journey & how to design a successful event.
  • Experience journey-mapping, guest-centered design & how to apply it.

Reception Entertainment – Richie Nuzz

Richie Nuzz is a Pop & R&B singer and recording artist. He is also a classically trained jazz musician. Although music has always been a part of his life, Richie’s road to stardom began as a fashion model. After attending Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Richie moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting and modeling. He has been featured in national publications such as Cosmopolitan, Men’s Exercise, Exercise for Men Only, Rich Yung, and more as one of the nations most-requested fitness models. An appearance in 2011 Katy Perry “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)" music video put the artist on the map, attracting hundreds of thousands of fans. A year later, Britney Spears, took Katy Perry’s star male model to feature him in her “Work Bitch” music video.

Richie's music is quickly gaining national and international recognition. He was the 2014 and current 2015 Winner of the ONE Musicfest People's Choice Award, which earned him the chance to perform at the largest music festival in the Southeast (over 25,000 fans), alongside Kendrick Lamar, NAS, Jhene Aiko and more at the Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta. As 2015 winner, Richie will be alongside Lauryn Hill, The Roots, A$AP Rocky, and Janelle Monae, Ryan Leslie and more.

Richie's upbeat attitude and his core belief that each individual should believe in him or herself and pursue one's dreams and passions fueled his BEiMMACULATE® movement. Richie strives to use the movement to motivate his fans and fellow industry professionals to give in to their creativity and to achieve greatness.
