Vibrant, hard-working, and a tenacious soul; Angelina Pertaglia is a woman on a mission to chase her dreams. Angelina’s dream came alive as she became President and CEO of “A Dream Group” (ADG) and “Dream Models and Talent Agency” (DMTA) based in Miami.

She built long lasting relationships and grew her contacts of various business professionals, DJs, musicians, models, promoters, and contacts around Miami, while handling the entertainment bookings for the hotel and nightclub. Thanks to her innovative marketing concepts, including the phenomenal Kitchen 305 “All You Can Eat Lobster and Crab Dinner specials,” Newport Beachside Hotel and Resort landed on the map as one of Miami’s Top Five Hottest Places to Visit.
A few years later, Angelina ventured off to start up her own event management agency which is now known as A Dream Group.
