Located in the heart of South Beach, the new Miami Beach Convention Center will be a bright, glass-encased facility as innovative and tech-rich as it is beautiful. In addition to the 500,000 square feet of versatile exhibition space and more than 180,000 square feet of meeting space, the new Miami Beach Convention Center will also include a 60,000-square-foot grand ballroom and a 20,000-square-foot junior ballroom. Each space will feature a terrace where attendees can step out, mingle and soak up the city’s signature sunshine and oceanfront breeze. The new Miami Beach Convention Center is also environmentally friendly and LEED Silver Certified.
Along with the new Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami continues to reinvent itself with new hotels, meeting spaces and enhanced infrastructure. Some of the recent additions to the city include:
Brickell City Centre
The $1.05 billion project by Swire Properties opened its doors in November 2016. 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.
The new express train service will provide intercity travel in Florida. In 2018, Brightline will begin service connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Service between Miami and Orlando will follow in 2020.
The $2 billion project planned for Downtown Miami will include retail, restaurants, entertainment, hotels, and residential and commercial space.
Frost Science Museum
The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science opened its doors to the public in May 2017, at its new home in downtown Miami’s Museum Park. The 250,000-square-foot facility combines a planetarium, aquarium and science museum on one campus.
Along with its world-famous weather and beaches, the city also offers nearly endless possibilities for entertainment and exploration. From unique hotel and dining experiences to culturally diverse neighborhoods and a thriving arts scene, Miami seamlessly blends the benefits of a sophisticated international destination with the natural beauty of the tropics. And it’s 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.
