Annual Fort Lauderdale Concours Returns in October

The luxury lifestyle event celebrates the convergence of automobiles with art, music, fashion and pop culture.

The 3rd Annual Fort Lauderdale Concours (FTLC) is a unique car show showcasing 35 rarely-seen, iconic cars accompanied by live music and lifestyle curations. In just three short years, it has become one of the most anticipated events of the year and tickets are now available for purchase. The event will take place amidst the picturesque marina of Superyacht Village (2150 SE 17th St, Fort Lauderdale) in collaboration with the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27.

FTLC brings together the worlds of cars and culture, featuring a collection of classic and exotic automobiles that are rarely seen, an art gallery by Las Olas Capital Arts, live music by the Valerie Tyson Band, Zaddy Fashion, a collectible sneaker curation matching select cars by Matt Senna, and an air-conditioned Pavilion Lounge with unlimited cocktails and canapés. It’s an opportunity for car enthusiasts and art lovers to come together and celebrate the convergence of automotive design with other forms of art and entertainment.

FTLC and its founder, Maria Jannace, aim to reinvigorate the passion of established car collectors and enthusiasts while creating a distinctive culture that attracts a new and more diverse generation of classic car lovers. As the only female owner and operator of a national concours, Jannace is a former Fort Lauderdale resident who attended high school and started her first business there. Her history with and love for Fort Lauderdale runs deep and she is excited to bring her unique cultural experience to all the city’s residents.

Until Oct. 17, discounted advanced tickets are available for $130, after which the price will be $160. A discounted combination ticket for the FLTC and FLIBS Winward VIP Experience (Friday only) is available for $523.To purchase, click here.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
