With a vast background of producing food and wine events throughout South Florida for the digital media world, Mike Ferreira will once again chair the Wellington Chamber of Commerce’s Flavors 2016 Food & Wine Festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center on Friday, April 8.
Ferreira is the creator and executive producer of ChukkerTV.com, which live streams polo coverage worldwide, and has been on the food scene for years with his company Phase 7 Digital Media Network, which has covered most of South Florida’s food scene.
His video series On Location covered restaurants and chefs serving up some of the most delicious food around, including the 2013 Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival with the Food Network’s top chefs, SOBE Seafood Fest 2013, the Miami Burger Cook-off and the Boca Food & Wine Festival.
Now in its 13th year, Flavors is a signature event of the Wellington Chamber, as well as the premier food and wine tasting event in western Palm Beach County.
“I’m excited to be part of Flavors for its 13th year and having the opportunity to contribute toward its growth,” Ferreira said. “Getting to experience food and wine events all over the country, it’s a treat having Flavors in our back yard.”
Ferreira has been featured in the Palm Beach Post and Wellington The Magazine, in addition to several technology, software and digital media journals and web sites.
In January 2014, the entrepreneur founded Chukker.TV, which has become a leader in polo broadcasting. The independent media company produces content for the Internet and television, operates instant replay and develops state-of-the art technology.
In addition, Ferreira implemented a system where umpires can hold an iPad device and watch the game in real-time and ask to return to any part of the game without interrupting any on-going challenges or live broadcasts.
Ferreira is also an incoming 2016-17 Wellington Chamber of Commerce board member.
