This will be the first time the event will take place outside the United States. Races kick off Friday, April 28th and continue until Saturday, April 29th at Resorts World Bimini.

The thrilling event is the result of a partnership between Resorts World Bimini, The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and The Bahamas Ocean Sports Authority (BOSA).

„The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism is very excited by its partnership with Resorts World Bimini and Bahamas Ocean Sports Authority (BOSA) in bringing back offshore powerboat racing to The Bahamas. The beauty and proximity of Resorts World on the legendary island of Bimini to Florida and beyond is a perfect fit for all ocean sports and lifestyle events. Powerboat enthusiasts from throughout the Islands of The Bahamas and the U.S. are invited to join us in Bimini,” said Donna Mackey, senior manager of sales in the Ministry of Tourism’s Florida office.

Mackey noted that Focused TV Productions has been contracted to film and televise the event. At least 60 boats have already committed to taking part in the grand prix, Mackey added.

OPA President Ed Smith said, „This is huge for the OPA. We race between the U.S. and Canada when we race in St. Clair and Port Huron Michigan, and now we are going to The Bahamas.”

Roger Berkon, of BOSA noted that this will be create massive exposure for the island of Bimini and Resorts World.

„We’ll televise this race nationally across the United States with an hour-long show on a major network and that will maximize resort exposure.

Acclaimed hospitality marketing & PR agency opens New Zealand Branch

Dutch marketing and PR agency Typhoon Hospitality is expanding its business to Asia Pacific by launching an Auckland branch. The agency is joining forces with local company Lily & Louis to work with world’s leading brands and independent businesses within the hospitality industry.

Due to its specialist and niche approach, the start-up has achieved major partnerships with brands such as Guinness, Nespresso, Hendrick’s Gin, Deliveroo, and THE ENTOURAGE GROUP. With its expansion to New Zealand, the agency can now realise its dream to elevate marketing and PR in hospitality to the next level in two different time zones.

The Amsterdam-based agency focuses on the European market while Typhoon Hospitality New Zealand will be responsible for Asia Pacific.

In 2012, Typhoon Hospitality was founded on the belief that from a marketing perspective, hospitality could do, and deserved, better. Now, the agency boasts 30 specialists spanning marketing, events and public relations.

“We used to joke around about Typhoon’s upcoming ‘world domination’. Hidden within this innocuous joke was a very real desire to expand globally. Half a year ago I found the perfect home to take this step. Auckland: a region whose hospitality branch was at the same stage as Amsterdam was when Typhoon Hospitality was founded. With the establishment of the Asia Pacific HQ, we will not just be an Amsterdam/European hospitality partner in crime, but a confidant for brands and entrepreneurs from around the world,” says Typhoon Hospitality’s Founder and Managing Director Yaela Betsalel.

To utilise its expertise on the far side of the world to the fullest, Typhoon Hospitality has joined forces with boutique consumer PR agency Lily & Louis. Lily & Louis is intimately familiar with the New Zealand market with year on year growth, making it an idea partner to complete Typhoon Hospitality’s extensive experience in the field. It boasts an impressive client portfolio consisting of leading national and international brands such as Montblanc, AMP, Accor Hotels, Peroni, Sanpellegrino.

“We are delighted to partner with Typhoon Hospitality and look forward to innovating bespoke marketing and PR solutions in a booming hospitality industry in New Zealand. In 2016 alone, sales sat at almost $9 billion per annum. This is a serious industry with major social and economic implications and it’s not going anywhere. It is only logical that we expand our rapidly growing business to include marketing and PR solutions, which consider and satisfy this growing sector’s needs,” says Lily & Louis’ Managing Partner Jacqui Ansin.

“In five years, Typhoon has developed an unprecedented speciality in hospitality marketing, PR and communication. We’re honoured to serve a new market with our partners Lilly & Louis to add value to the industry in New Zealand and beyond,” adds Betsalel.

Stanley Tomchin – Joins Three Square To Offer Food To Nevada’s Economically Less Advantaged Children

Submit the press release

Tomchin’s efforts have primarily been focused on building one of these strategic partnerships, a program with local after school care provider CORE Academy and its host school, West Prep Academy.

Every day in Southern Nevada, more than 126,000 children struggle to be fed. Without proper sustenance, these children often face chronic illness, developmental issues, and even significant health issues in adulthood. Recognizing this serious problem, retired professional games player Stanley Tomchin has partnered with Las Vegas’ Feeding America affiliate, Three Square, to bring an end to child hunger. Since 2012, Tomchin’s support of the organization has allowed for nearly one million free, nutritious meals to be distributed to underprivileged students throughout Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda, and Clark Counties.

With the mission to provide wholesome meals to hungry people while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community, Three Square combines food banking and rescue practices with ready to eat meals to be Southern Nevada’s most complete solution for those facing food insecurity, or the inability to secure enough food for a healthy diet and active lifestyle. The nonprofit organization works with a service network of approximately 1,300 community partners, including charities, schools, shelters, meal programs and SNAP outreach sites, to distribute more than 31 million meals to struggling individuals each year. Stanley Tomchin‚s efforts have primarily been focused on building one of these strategic partnerships, a program with local after school care provider CORE Academy and its host school, West Prep Academy.

Together with the support of the community, CORE Academy strives to strengthen character, build brilliant minds, and create brighter futures for the area’s most under-resourced youth; to end the cycle of poverty, and allow for individuals to reach their full potential. Three Square has partnered with the program to feed the student scholars with a mobile pantry that has thus far nourished 1,300 low income children and their families. In addition, once a month free boxes of food are available to take home for any child in attendance of West Prep Academy. Following the partnership’s success, Three Square President and CEO Brian Burton is thankful for the support of individuals like Tomchin, „Stan is an exemplary leader who cares deeply about children in Southern Nevada. We love partnering with him to feed so many children and families in need.”

Stanley Tomchin is a committed philanthropist and retired games player currently residing in Las Vegas. Raised in Long Island, New York, Tomchin was a chess master by age 13 and eventually represented the United States in the bridge Olympiad. After travelling the globe enjoying success as the world’s most potent professional games player, he was inspired by his sister, Joy, to return home and dedicate his life to assisting those in need. Tomchin soon began supporting local charities as well as larger organizations including Greenpeace and Sea Shepard Conservation Society, both dedicated to the preservation of the world’s oceans and organisms living in it. In addition to the CORE Academy and West Prep Academy, other educational institutions that have benefited from Tomchin’s generosity include the Marty Hennessy Jr. Tennis Foundation, the Ideal School of Manhattan, Communities In Schools of Nevada, Nevada Institute for Children’s Research and Policy, Teach For America, and Nevada State College Foundation.

Chinese menswear brand Cabbeen adopts Centric PLM to keep pace with fast-moving Chinese fashion market

CAMPBELL, Calif., March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cabbeen, a leading designer menswear brand in China, has selected Centric Software to provide its product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Centric Software is the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor and consumer goods companies.

Founded in Guangzhou in 1997 by its chairman and chief designer, Ziming Yang affectionaly also known as 'Mr. Cabbeen', Cabbeen houses four menswear brands: Cabbeen Lifestyle, Cabbeen Urban, Cabbeen Chic and 2AM. Cabbeen's clothing retails in over 1,000 points of sale across China and the company has won multiple Chinese fashion awards.

In the face of a competitive and quickly evolving fashion market in China, Cabbeen decided to restructure their internal supply chain system with the goal of becoming more agile and reacting faster to changing retail conditions. In reviewing their IT infrastructure, they realized that they needed to invest in a PLM system.

"Cabbeen needs a strong platform to support business growth and achieve rapid innovation," says Chen Jun, CIO of Cabbeen. "We looked for a solution that would reduce rework for internal departments and external suppliers, eliminate the need to communicate the same information multiple times and also support the structural reform of our organization."

"We reviewed a number of large PLM solution providers, but eventually chose Centric PLM because the platform is very adaptable and flexible," explains Chen. "This is important in the apparel and fashion industry, which changes at great speed. Centric Software's market leading position gives us confidence in their product and the Centric team is professional and experienced in our industry. Users can fully participate in the implementation process and it truly is a 'what you see is what you get' solution."

"With Centric PLM, we look forward to a rapid reduction in the amount of time the R&D team spends on data collection," says Chen. "Centric PLM will allow them to quickly accumulate knowledge and improve efficiency. We expect to define and standardize all aspects of the research and development process, improving visualization and transparency. Its flexible architecture enables a quick response to changes in the business."

As Chen concludes, "Centric Software is an outstanding PLM vendor, offering rich product features, an excellent Agile Deployment SM implementation concept, high customer satisfaction and seamless delivery to users. We look forward to a long-term partnership with Centric Software, sharing business experience and developing innovative solutions to match the demands of the Chinese fashion industry."
