The 13th annual gathering of Carroll Model Volleyball presented by Celsius is set to take place on March 18 and 19, 2023, at Miami Beach. The two-day co-ed tournament is free and open to the public and is expected to attract over 15,000 spectators. The event will benefit The Angel Watching Over Me Foundation and has the support of the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority.
Miami's top model agencies, including Wilhelmina, Next, Elite, Select, Source, BMG, JLM, Caroline Gleason, Ford, and Front, are invited to participate in the tournament. This year's event will feature 11 agencies and 250 participating models, making it the largest to date.
CARROLL, a privately held real estate investment firm founded by Patrick Carroll in 2004, is the title sponsor for this year's tournament. The company has successfully purchased, developed, or sold more than $20.9 billion in real estate and manages approximately 30,000 multifamily units across eight states representing $7.1 billion in assets under management.
In addition to the volleyball games, there will be several other activities and partnerships to enjoy. Celsius, the presenting sponsor, will showcase an interactive spectator experience and sample all of their newest flavors. Pharrell's concept Strawberry Moon will provide VIP beach deck services, and Crown Royal Regal Apple will have special partner integrations.
