Famous beaches, stunning weather and endless options for entertainment — just three reasons that visitors flock to Miami each year. Now, add one more world-class attraction to the list: the reimagined Miami Beach Convention Center. Newly renovated with a focus on sustainability, it is changing the game when it comes to meeting in Miami. The updated space blends imagination, innovation, and unique design that stays true to Miami’s style and identity, continuing to bolster the city’s claim as a premier global hub for arts, culture, and tech.
A Lot of Exciting Space
Located in the heart of South Beach and just minutes from the ocean, the reimagined Miami Beach Convention Center boasts over 180,000 square feet of meeting space, a 60,000-square-foot grand ballroom, a 20,000-square-foot junior ballroom, 84 breakout rooms, and 6 acres of green space. A new terrace has also been added, to the delight of attendees looking for a breath of fresh air and that famous Miami sunshine.
Beauty and Brains
The completion of the convention center coincides with Miami’s decade-long assent to a global capital for arts and culture. With a new, bright, glass-encased exterior and art created by globally recognized artists, the convention center anchors a cultural campus of institutions and green spaces. It will continue to host some of the world’s most important art festivals, conventions, and events, including its most notable, December’s Art Basel.
In addition to the stunning architectural enhancements, the Miami Beach Convention Center’s state-of-the-art facility has positioned itself as an emerging hub on the global tech scene, attracting a global community of technologists and tech leaders forming a base here. eMerge America, one of the top tech shows in the country, could not have become what it is today without the new convention center and its enhancements.
Adding to all the excitement and momentum is the newly approved, privately funded, 800-room convention headquarter hotel. This missing piece of the destination's meetings and convention puzzle makes Greater Miami and the beaches more competitive in securing meetings business. It also fuels more travel and tourism jobs, increasing economic impact to the entire community.
Just 12 miles away, Miami International Airport offers more than 400 international flights daily from more airlines than any other airport in the U.S., making meeting in Miami easier than ever.
