A vibrant and dynamic global hub, Miami offers a stunning array of creative venue options for even the largest meeting needs, including the new Miami Beach Convention Center, which is now open!

Miami Beach Convention Center

Located in the heart of South Beach, the new Miami Beach Convention Center is a bright, glass-encased facility as innovative and technology-rich as it is beautiful. In addition to the nearly 500,000 square feet of versatile exhibition space and more than 180,000 square feet of meeting space, the facility includes a 60,000-square-foot grand ballroom, a 20,000-square-foot junior ballroom, and 84 breakout rooms.

The space features a terrace where attendees can step out, mingle, and soak up the city’s signature sunshine and ocean breeze. The new Miami Beach Convention Center is also environmentally friendly and LEED Silver-certified.

Downtown Miami Highlights

Along with the new Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami has continued to reinvent itself with incredible hotels, meeting spaces, and enhanced infrastructure. Some highlights that shouldn’t be missed include:

  • Brickell City Centre: Spanning 9.1 acres, Brickell City Centre includes a 352-room hotel, an open-air shopping center, two luxury condo towers, two office buildings, and an entertainment center.
  • Brightline: This stylish, best-in-class express train service provides intercity travel, connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. Service between Miami and Orlando is coming soon.
  • Frost Science Museum: The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, located in downtown Miami’s Museum Park, is a state-of-the-art, 250,000-square-foot facility that combines a planetarium, aquarium, and science museum on one campus.

Endless Possibilities

Few places in the world deliver such a thriving mix of international sophistication, natural tropical beauty, and authentic cultural diversity as Miami. From picture-perfect weather, pristine beaches, and top-rated attractions to lavish hotels, eclectic dining, and a thriving cultural scene, the city offers endless possibilities for entertainment and exploration.

One of the best places to start is the city’s diverse array of neighborhoods, where visitors are encouraged to explore the deep, rich cultural roots that make Miami such an incredible melting pot. Discover the heritage of the Caribbean in Little Haiti or the Bahamian foundations in West Coconut Grove. Immerse yourself in the African-American experience of Historic Overtown or the region’s still-thriving Native American community in South Dade.

When it comes to arts, Miami is also a burgeoning hotbed. Stroll through the street arts district of Wynwood or visit one of the city’s fascinating museums, such as Perez Art Museum Miami or The Bass Museum of Art. Wherever you look, cultural gems are awaiting to be found.

Miami is also easy to get to, with Miami International Airport (MIA) offering more than 400 flights from around the globe daily and serving more airlines than any other airport in the U.S.

These are just a few of the memorable and magical highlights awaiting any meeting planner thinking of Miami. Visit to learn more.
